It appears that the spiritual successor to Theme Hospital, Two Point Hospital, has been cracked prior to its official release. Two Point Hospital uses the Denuvo anti-tamper tech, however, and mainly due to Unity Engine, crackers were able to bypass it in record time and crack it.
Crackers were able to completely bypass Denuvo by using a custom DLL file. Surprisingly enough, the executable files in all Unity games are unprotected and Denuvo is used via a DLL file. As such, all crackers had to do was replace the DLL file with one that did not feature the Denuvo anti-tamper tech. And that’s it.
We don’t know whether this will have a big – negative – impact on the game’s sales, and whether SEGA will remove it as the game has been cracked before its official release. What we do know is that this method cannot be used in other titles that are protected by Denuvo (as in most other games the executable files are protected). So before celebrating, this isn’t the end of Denuvo.
Naturally, we won’t allow links to the game’s pirated version and those who share such links will be banned!
