I don't know why Nintendo has such a strong fanbase, when they constantly piss on fans, and don't really care about them. Hell... Even Sega is a lot more calm, and relaxed about their IP.

Yeah I was planning on buying a 30 year old game but instead saw this free version and am going to just play that. /s

Should Nintendo even get money from a game they don't update anymore?

I feel after like 10ish years of not updating or selling it it's pretty much abandoned...

It's their right to do so, but I think it's silly to shut down fan based projects that obviously aren't for money.

Should a music artist get money from a song they wrote an someone else pro forms?

Fuck you, Nintendo. You don't have any excuse now. That's all I have to say.

Meanwhile, why don't the makers of the project just change the sprites and then continue?

[Edit] Seems they're doing just that.

So basically, if you want to start a fan project, just don't use assets and let modders do a sprite swap?

  1. Make derivative work of popular game
  2. Go viral because, hey, popular game
  3. Get Cease & Desist, parade it about for how unfair it is
  4. Create new assets and level design
  5. Profit now that tons of people are now aware of your project.

Was that their plan all along?

Although that's probably a good plan.

I don't know why people keep on trying to make Nintendo Tribute games. They all get ficked by Nintendo in the end.

Nintendo has repeatedly shown nothing but contempt for their most loyal fans.

Fuck em.

The indie games market is absolutely over-saturated. Making a tribute game is a great way to get noticed and appear in all the games media and bring attention to your work. By the time the takedown notice arrives, you've already got tens of thousands of people following on social media who are very interested in your projects.

While that's really kind of silly on the part of Nintendo given how little money they're likely making on the specific assets in question, was this C&D ever really in doubt? I mean, this is standard procedure these days...

Thanks for the reasonable thought. This is why they have to smash everything like this. It's not like they aren't using it anymore.

It used the exact same code from the rom. You can tell because the locked door bug still works at the beginning of dungeon 1.

Yeah people are pissed however if this was your ip you would be nice right? You won't sue or shut down if someone takes your idea and does this right? Now on to this!

Yeah copyright sucks when shit like this happens, but what if it was reversed a big company took a little guys ip made some and was going to profit from it? That's why they have to punch someone like this. The one time they don't and then someone will sue and they will loose the ip.

I don't think the reverse is a fair comparison, because the little guy is probably struggling financially, and trying to get his foot in the door. A big company like Nintendo has made a lots of money off this video game already, and is in no way being threatened, especially since this is a tribute game that's not being sold.

If I was Nintendo, I wouldn't have ever threatened the people behind the project. Maybe I would've said, "Hey, you know what? You guys are pretty smart. Do you have any creative ideas for Nintendo? Why don't you work with us? We could port this game to the 3DS and make money together."
