Bohemia Interactive asks you to sign petition to get imprisoned 'ARMA 3' developers home

A petition begins in an attempt to free to ARMA 3 developers jailed in Greece.

Bohemia Interactive is asking users to sign a petition to help get the imprisoned ARMA 3 developers home following their arrest in Greece for alleged espionage.

"We've been gratified at the interest you have shown in our games and especially the attention garnered by the recent DayZ phenomenon," wrote Bohemia spokesman Ota Vrtatko to members of press.

"What I would like to do is to make you aware, if you're not already, of a community created support website for Ivan Buchta and Martin Pezlar - HelpIvanMartin.org The website contains information about their arrest, links to news reports and an on-going petition to raise voices in protest at the arrest and charges."

Buchta and Pezlar have been held in Greece since September 9th after being accused by Greek authorities of taking photographs of military installations. Yesterday the two developers released a joint statement calling the arrest a "misunderstanding."

Both men face up to 20 years in jail.
