RedLynx denies leaking its own game to torrent sites RedLynx, a Finnish video game developer that was purchased by Ubisoft last year, has denied this week that it leaked its own game to torrent sites.
Their latest game, Trials Evolution, recently made its public debut via The Pirate Bay, and immediate blame was thrown back on the developers, who have been known to be pirates.

In 2009, CEO Tero Virtala admitted that the company put the first "Trials" game online, "taking advantage" of piracy: "What we did actually, on day one, we put [the PC edition of Trials] immediately on all the torrent networks ourselves."

Virtala was quick to deny this leak, however: "We want to be clear that [leaking Trials Evolution] is not something we did ourselves."

And as a direct and indirect result of them doing that back in 09, this article was written and created awareness and in turn........now I want to buy this game.

So......in a nutshell, piracy helped promote the shizzy out of this game. Yayyyyy......Piracy!!
