I knew what Spacewar was already, but I had no idea it was on Steam! I gotta look up that trick and find it! ...I don't have anything against cracked games, but I'm honestly interested in Spacewar as a piece of history.

Why are you not talking about Space Wars??? I am not hear to play pirated games... I am here to learn more about SpaceWar game play, duh... I guess I wanted to know more about Space Wars because I loved Atari's game Defender so much and I wanted to see what the differences between the two games were???

People have been using Spacewar for piracy since 4000BC, you're a few thousand years late to the punch guys.

If anyone is interested in games that use this trick, search in google for "Revolt Group". They have about 3000 Games, but you can only play with people online that use the same method.

Nikos Matsamplokos (1 year ago)
hello guys,any Idea how I can play pirated games through the spacewar system or whatever?i managed to play friday the 13th and styx but just these 2 Is there a crack or something to make other games work at the same way too?
Johny40Se7en (1 year ago)
This is wicked, and I don't really give a shit who knows but if I was as computer savvy, no pun intended, I'd be pirating all sorts of shit off the internet especially most games these days. It's no wonder why they do it though, the amount developers lie their fuckin' greedy asses off, there's no trust or care anymore, and that's not just the game industry either.
Geostationary0rbit (1 year ago)
personally I think its more source SDK and less pirates
Cate Morgan (1 year ago)
Yay, Space Pirates! Because of COURSE there are, and the internet. Honestly. XD

space war is awesome
masterpepin (1 year ago)
Why is it that this "Space War" game from 1962, looks more complete, and possibly more fun, than No Mans Sky?
Lu Su (1 year ago)
I thought the whole point of a cracked game is that you can play it without being signed into steam?
Shaun K (1 year ago)
ummm, I think I played spacewar: infinite warfare. I'm not surprised it was made in the 60's...

there's always a way, there's always a way i tell you, take down spacewar and we'll find another way, you will never stop us from playing spacewar games.

James Hardaker (1 year ago)
i think you've dropped the ball on this one. I play spacewar to test my steam controller modifications to quake2. Ive probably put about 50 hours into spacewar testing my games on steam - i don't qualify for an appId. Imaging how much time is put in by actually game companies testing prototypes and what not. Some pirates but this is well known by developers, which there are a lot of.
Art1985 (1 year ago)
I used this spacewar thing to play with friends who can't afford to purchase game legally. But I have those games on steam that I've played using spacewar. And sometimes I use piracy like an opportunity to try new game before buying it.
Mclloydeeee (1 year ago)
You two make me laugh " Spacewar has a higher number than infinite warfare ". " And that's without the hackers " 😂😂😂😂😂😭😭😭Your like a young comical Dumbledor. you crack me up🙂 Keep up the good vids lads. ✌
Billy Taj (1 year ago)
Sounds like the next COD games. I can imagine it being pitched. "We will do COD in space! " every one will be like no we did that an no one liked it. "We will do COD in space in the past! Like just after ww2!" Makes no sense but make it lol. I think a lot of people pirate games because of game developers rubbishness too. I think people are annoyed they are getting unfinished, buggy ports with no online servers with micro transactions they think why should they pay? It's not right but no one is innocent in that scenario. Play old games it's cheaper.

SpaceWar is great guys, I play that game from time to time.... ;)

Ernesto Lone Wolf (1 year ago)
so... i guess there will be a lot of pirates when sea of thieves come out?
DeadlyDanDaMan (1 year ago)
You seriously think a multi-billion dollar company like Valve didn't know about this until you posted this video? Wow, that's some seriously ridiculous levels of narcissism right there...fucking wankers.
Sam H (1 year ago)
I think piracy will increase with the shift toward money been in the hands of fewer people. The less people who can afford them, the more people will look for alternative methods.
TaurusTrio (1 year ago)
While I don't condone piracy I still admire the crafty creativity behind this! I can only imagine they puzzled expressions when they first saw the results of the stats =p
Joek9100 (1 year ago)
I wasn't even aware that you could play pirated games online
Blaze Kazama (1 year ago)
I can't say I've ever actually played Spacewar. However I might have tried 'Spacewar' occasionally.
Tyrone Biggums (1 year ago)
if a game is more than $60, it deserves to be pirated. Oh nooo! people will lose sales! except they wont.. because if you pirate a game that means you weren't coughing up the absurd amount of cash they wanted in the first place.
Sura Ventri (1 year ago)
Not really, if that was true all Australian steam users would be playing space wars because we pay more than the AUS equivalent of US $60 because (actual government senate inquiry conclusion) they can. $75 USD for Injustice 2. Sales lost yes, OH NO PIRATE BOYCOTT SOLVES OVERPRICING no.
Crazy Gamer (1 year ago)
Does that mean their _Space Pirates?_

Nikephor (1 year ago)
I downloaded speedrunners illegally once, and my Steam profile said I was playing this game lol. I had an idea of what could that be used for, but I never thought it would be so damn big, RIP spacewar then I guess.
Tennessse Timmy (1 year ago)
Good note, there is a community behind cracked games with plenty of people cracking the games and helping others play them for free with no ads. They don't make any money, they just want people to have fun.
Sura Ventri (1 year ago)
I would honestly rather see the community help by solving actual problems in the world like censorship, company standover tactics, environmental abuse by companies hiding it behind doctored reports, workers dying from industrial fuckups that government bribes cover yup than solving the 1st world problem of gamers who can't afford to pay for a game.
Jaeger Bombastico (1 year ago)
Are you guys just learning this? I've known this for like a year and a half now. Lul.
elmohead (1 year ago)
Spacewar 2. Make it happen. Trademark the words "space" and "war", have a day 1 DLC for premium players to be able to access a 3D, high poly-count ship that shoots like fucking Ikaruga. All for $199.
xtemma (1 year ago)
Pirated Copy Master Race.

Before video: Piracy... piracy never changes. After video: Piracy has changed!
Aleksandar Fotev (1 year ago)
We all know the scene is always evolving. If it isn't Spacewar, it will be something else or spread among more games. Some f2p games that are available for everyone. At least this is a good way to keep an eye on piracy, having them all gathered on 1 game. Just for lols, i would add few achievements to the game :)
neglesaks (1 year ago)
I play SpaceWar OVER NINE THOUSAND FUCKING TIMES A DAY!
Tony Tornado (1 year ago)
Every single Bethesda game should be Space War!

They are just waiting for space scum to come out... so they can pirate it XD

The hype's too strong, I'm gonna buy myself an oscilloscope...
Marcell (1 year ago)
The nice thing about SpaceWar is that it doesn't have a pay to play/win aspect, thats probably why so many people play it....
JackaL YT (1 year ago)
I buy my games. Fuck them scrubs
bam 6667 (1 year ago)
I buy games carefully, if it has good reviews or my friends recommend it then I will give some money to the developers but I wouldn't pirate a game it's just stealing
Altamush Nayyer Khan (1 year ago)
I stopped playing Space war after I got a job!
Sura Ventri (1 year ago)
So many pirates would scoff at you, then 5 years later... OH FUCK IM ONE OF THEM NOW
Chris PharmD (1 year ago)
You guys read my mind sometimes. Yesterday, I was wondering if there was any 1960s games and there was four of them according to Google. Space Wars was the one I remembered. It's too bad this isn't on Steam. I'd play it.
Flamey Kumori (1 year ago)
3,593rd! Yes, take that you bastards!
TK_Noodles99 (1 year ago)
Spacewar was the first video game, so there are probably people interested in what video gaming was like back then. It also was the precursor of eSports because they had collegiate tournaments around Spacewar.

Video games where better in the 60's
Leo 711 (1 year ago)
we are not hacking the game we are just trying the demo...
I have played both the cracked version and the original version of SpaceWar....

I've had several pirated games that used spacewar's steam id
Danny Grant (1 year ago)
Really impressed with your channel fellas. I've never been into vlogging or the like but you make it very engaging, your content is very interesting (loved the 'why is no one playing WD2' video especially) and aren't up your own arses. Keep up the good work.
MrServantRider (1 year ago)
I haven't played any pirated games directly on Steam, that's a bit of a scary prospect. XD I mean, what about all the games I've paid for? As I understand it, Steam would be allowed to shut down your account. That would be *absolutely awful*. Well, that said, if I'm gonna pirate a game it's going to be through downloading the game and using programs like Tuungle to connect to friends. I don't really need anything beyond that since I rarely play games online anyway.
iJamie8467x (1 year ago)
MrServantRider or You can't get banned for having Spacewar. They will have to ban millions Also you can get it legally I heard somewhere that all Devs have Spacewar on their steam because they regonise a unknown game
Sura Ventri (1 year ago)
If your steam librarywas made up entirely of pirated games they wouldn't give a shit if Steam shut it down, just need to make a new one.

I pirated Spore once, still didnt finish it..
Gamehelper 101 (1 year ago)
Spacewar still going strong since 1962.
Prasanth Sundaram (1 year ago)
the more you put restrictions on the buyers with internet drm and always online, the more it will increase piracy! its like a rubberband the more you stretch it the more it'll pull against you! Support DRM FREE games! The buyers should get a feeling of ownership after spending 60 to 80 dollars on a game!
Prasanth Sundaram (1 year ago)
that won't be the case look at digital devolver and CD PROJECKT RED they have made all their games DRM-FREE games and yet they make profit, and How big CD PORJECKT RED has become over the years DRM-free model doesn't seem to affect them !
Sura Ventri (1 year ago)
Except idiots will pirate the DRM free/ good pro-consumer dev-made games and the industry will take that as a "we tried it your way, didn't work, now lets go back to heavy handed shit" Pretty much every one who played a pirate copy of Witcher 3 should be ashamed.
Bryan Duarte (1 year ago)
so this game have more players than Ubisoft games? xDDDDDDDDDDDDD
Satoro (1 year ago)
I bet SpaceWar was even more popular before steam new refund policy.
Peta J (1 year ago)
Im blown away by the fact its from 1962, I honestly thought pong was the first video game and that was early seventies(which incidentally was basically a mod created on an oscilloscope) , but space war seems a lot more advanced as well as being designed from scratch rather than modded from an already existing tech that was never intended for such a purpose.

TONY SETTLES (1 year ago)
I actually remember a game I wanted to try years ago. I had to install a semi-fake Steam to get multiplayer working and the game registered was SpaceWar.

pirates are the genuine genius article.
Karma Kuro (1 year ago)
As an ex pirate king I do think that pirates are just getting more creative than them actually growing in numbers exponentially. If you really wanna crack down on piracy I recommend finding 'One Piece' before anyone else does.
Peta J (1 year ago)
"a bit of work" and you can install spacewar, could you BE any more cryptic?
