Pirates complaining about piracy

Game Dev Tycoon is an indie game that costs only $7.99 in the Windows app store, and is DRM-free. A free demo is also available. Nevertheless Green Heart Games determined that only 6.4% of the players on release day had bought the game legitimately, the other 95.6% were playing a pirated copy. So they struck back and put a slightly modified "cracked" version of the game on torrent. In that version your career as game development tycoon ends in ruin, because of simulated piracy.

The funniest thing about the story is that the people playing the pirated version of the game were then going to the official forums to complain about piracy in the game. You gotta love the irony!
