xD That's a bit harsh don't you think. From the way they presented the game though I think they consulted lawyers first.

I get a little upset by such things. Often, when things like these get shutdown, I get mad because:
It was an inevitability waiting to happen
A lot of effort was put down to make it.

Now, if a fan is truly that commited, make an "inspired by", instead of a "remake of" and work freely on a truly original creation.

No C&D's, no threats, no pesky lawyers. Is that really that hard?

You have a point there though. For games that do not have modding like the GTAs it's best to steal Gameplay elements and style. I mean you cannot copyright gameplay.

Recently, same thing happened to a remake of Metroid 2. I'm a bit furious. It looked great, but of course, Nintendo did what Nintendo does.

And everyone knows it/expects it to be.

I know it is easier to join a team and work on a fan-game instead of an original creation, but those guys should just know better.

*Shudders in Italian*

no offense ^^ but for an Italian it's inconceivable to have meat over rice like that - I bet it's tasty though!

Well, due to having an asian wife, it's more like 50% for me ^^
But that's it.. that's "asian" food, i.e. it's a different category from the master race Italian food (please don't let her see this :meh: ) and thus is subject to different rules and acceptability criteria xD

Got my couple of books, finally!
Essential C#6.0 (enormous!) and C #6.0 Pocket Reference (tiny).

I'm a happy pappy.
