Krzysztof Narkowicz, Lead Engine Programmer at Flying Wild Hog, was asked why the studio decided not to use any anti-piracy protection on Shadow Warrior 2 and his response was that DRM leads to a "worse version" of the game and that it hurts its customers. If you like the franchise or want to support the developer, buy the game. Don't have the cash? You can win a copy from NVIDIA.

We don't support piracy, but currently there isn't a good way to stop it without hurting our customers. Denuvo means we would have to spend money for making a worse version for our legit customers. It's like this FBI warning screen on legit movies.
