To be fair, a representative of the dev responded in that thread that they did not write that comment and unstickied it as the answer to the initial question.
The dev then went to say that while they did not agree with the response, they also were not open to removing Denuvo.
I'm not a fan of DRM or anything, but I can understand why a big company would see "investing" in it as a way to protect their product. I am a bit confused by these smaller names putting the bucks into Denuvo though.
I know, that; the problem here is that A DEV sticked it in the first place, and after the damage was done, he (or someone else) tried to recover from it).
Still, that doesn't change the fact that despite the game is already available illegally for over 2 years, the devs didn't remove denuvo, effectively hurting only customers :/
