The X Button writes: "10 years ago, Malicious would have been a full priced retail release. It would have been boxed and on shelves for people to buy it at full price, and some would have done. Then it would have been heavily discounted and gained a small cult following but would have become nearly impossible to find for anyone who might eventually want to play the game. A digital release saves it from that fate, and ensures that it will always be available, and at a price point low enough for people to be willing to take a chance on it. And I highly recommend that you do take a chance on it; you might be pleasantly surprised."
