Hi there everyone!
Alex Poysky here with an update on the key giveaway.
I appear to have shown up on Spain's national news page (20 minutos . es), which is what I believe is causing this incredible influx in people, which is both a great thing and a difficult one, due to a particularly nasty individual.
This morning someone knocked our server out, ruining the fun giveaway we have been having and trying to take the christmas gifts I'm giving you away.
So far, a whopping 22,024, that is the equivilant of around 50 thousand euros worth of keys have been given out to people in need.
I don't want to stop now, so I'm going to ask the public to help me out.
I will use reddit as a medium to keep on giving out keys, to be more precise,
THIS post http://www.reddit.com/r/pcgaming/comments/2q0p9b/pixel_piracys_producer_me_will_buy_you_the_game/
But it would be awesome if you all spread the word to other Reddit channels!
As a personal favor, I'd be extremely happy if you guys helped me contact the press, social media, YOUTUBERS in particular, and let them know that I WILL give them each a hundred keys to hand out to you, with further hundred key increments being handed out if they ask me for more.
I'm not going to let a small group of unmentionables ruin this charity drive for everyone else.
If we work together we'll be able to spread the word and get this game to people who don't have the means this holiday season.
I know there's people abusing it but I honestly DO NOT care so long as I reach those who really do need the cheering up. If you have abused the system, and gotten a key you don't really need, feel free to help out by spreading the word to social media, the press, and reddit.
EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS, I promise, and I'd love for you all to be a part of something charitable and kind during this holiday season.
As a PERSONAL favor, to those who have recieved a key and like the game, I'd like to cordially INVITE (no obligation at all what-so-ever) to write a steam review. I personally read them all and would love to hear feedback from each and every one of you.
I WILL NOT hand out keys in the response section below, my personal twitter, my personal skype, or my personal e-mail. Not to be inconsiderate, but I simply can no longer read the thousands upon thousands of e-mails A DAY that I get. PLEASE stick to the reddit and if I can get to the press we'll be that much better off!
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE!
“Wow, a 10/10, but why?! Why? because this game managed to captured my heart immediately, with its excellent sound effects, cute, even if unpolished, pixel art and the ability to not only lead a pirate life, but do it with your own customized ship and crew. the promised features will make it from a 8/10 right now to the 10/10 it could be. should be. will be. this one is bound to be a classic, and not reviewing it as such would only make me look fool in hindsight.”

“Pixel Piracy is a loveable game with its own barrel of charm the mood seems perfect and I can just forget all my other needs. I can't help but hear the sounds the pirates make every now and again even when I'm not playing. Very interested to see where this games goes down the line. The loss of my pirates may seem a bit unforgiving at the moment but I'l only try harder next time ! If you like a bit of randomness and the ability to design your own ship, assemble your crew whilst managing their needs then you might as well try this out.”

“I don't give games a 10/10 that often, if not ever. But this game has so much going on for it, and it is under the radar right now. So, do yourself a favor, download the demo, have an awesome time, and then buy this game, cause it really is a gem. If you like pirates, and high sea adventure in highly randomized generated worlds, this is the game for you! It is very unforgiving, so you have to be very sure about your intentions when you play. One false planning and you have to start over from scratch (although there outside methods to save your game if you want to "cheat" save so do not worry). But the gameplay is fun, the art style, and sound effects are smarmy and swaggy. If you don't like this game, just walk the plank, because you don't enjoy fun things evidently :)”
