positive side effects of sanctions?

Iranian Developers Forced to Rely on Open Source Software
Developing a current generation game without current generation software sounds like an impossible task - unless you're Fanafzar Game Studios.

Garshasp, the Mace of Sarith is a game produced entirely from in-house and open source programming software. Due to Western trade sanctions, obtaining actual development software is impossible. What makes Garshasp unique is in addition to being produced with open source software, it is also the first Iranian game with global commercial viability to come out of Iran.
