Hello, i had idea of make a game simulating fire fighting on a forest. Searching the internet i found one similar game, with a lot of new ideas for me. But techonogicaly outdated. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SimCopter Do you think the remake of that game should be profitable? What do you think i should include from original game? Any new feature you would include into the remake? Thanks in advance

I used to play this a lot. Still have it. Fun game.

I don't think it was a hit. Maxis for a time was just making whatever came to mind. They were not doing well financially.

Why not laser focus on the forest fighting part? I don't know of any good forest fighting games.

Of course, you should steer clear of using the trademarked title or any of the copyrightable assets of that game. You can see numerous threads about the legal aspects of remakes in the Business And Law forum, and at http://www.sloperama.com/advice/faq61.htm

A large part of the fun was seeing your own city and flying around it or walking. Ditto "streets of sim city".
