I must confess I have! seen freeware only remakes of sonic games feature orriginal sounds and graffics, such as this one (not accessible, but it makes the poiknt): http://www.infamous-adventures.com/kq3/index.php?page=faq


While I understand the issue about copywrite and thw rroy about getting a desist letter (especially as regards commercial games for proffit, and with the idiocy that tom Recieved over Monti), I know for a fact freeware graffical game makers aren't as concerned at all. There are even cases where the original creators of games saw a free remake, and sent congratulations makers to the remaker, ----- pleased that their game is stil out there.


the only company I've seen persistantly squash remakes, is (sadly), nintendo, but keep clear of them and things should be fine for a free accessible remake of any game using original sounds or whatever, so long as a correct disclaimer is written.

just considder how many utube vids feature graffics, sound, music or whatever from films or games, then ask if a free game is really that! different.

Needless to say though, anything commercial is far more tricky.

Beware the grue!

Hi Will,
Yes, you have to get permission if you want your audio remakes to be
legal. However, that said if you make the game for yourself, for
private use, then there isn't much they can say or do about it.
I've currently got a couple of game projects here at home, one is the
Star Wars project people know about, that have not been released to
the public for exactly that reason. While I can create the game, use
sounds etc for my personal use, if I redistribute it publically I
could end up in hot water. So I'm not really sure if or when I'll ever
release them to the audio games community since it is a messy business
using characters, sounds, music from a popular video game.

guess i need permission to use original sounds etc? if that is the case,
obtaining that will be impossible for us to make our games that we want all
