A swashbuckling tale of Italian software piracy - 1983-1993 | The Genesis Temple

quote [ Since there was little-to-no quality control, the crackers would go on about modifying the games’ structure as they saw fit. It might be fair to say that many titles that would have never been released on the market, at least, managed to reach some gamers, with an italian translation to boot. Unfortunately, one couldn’t really count on those homemade translations to make any sense, since, again, were based on made-up stories and characters. Still, changing names was only the tip of the iceberg of the confusion. ]
