A scammer using the pseudonym of Balaji Chowdary is selling a host of games illegally on the Windows Store.

Tyler Sigman, co-president of Red Hook Studios, warned consumers on Twitter that his game Darkest Dungeon was being sold on the storefront without his permission. The title is available for £2.59 with a file size of just 2mb.

He added that anyone who had bought the game outside of Steam or Humble had been scammed.

As well as Darkest Dungeon, Shadowrun: Dragonfall, Game Dev Tycoon, LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, SpinTires and Farming Simulator 2015 are also being sold illegally on the store by the same user.

All titles are still available for purchase at the time of writing.
