Personal Information

  1. Clone Wars Emu and Star Wars Redemption are two projects that are also a good illustration to the topic. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtILCC-rFo3P0njxke-SCFg https://www.artstation.com/artwork/gO4Pm
  2. I just shared those two projects as examples of what I was looking to develop. Why would I have to contact the companies? Anyways I did contact Blizzard though and they replied right away. I already shared the public page where they state weather or not game assets can be used for such fan projects. And the answer was "no". And I believe the same should be true for any game. Here is the link again http://us.blizzard.com/en-us/company/about/legal-faq.html I hope this topic can be informative for other game devs who have the same question in the future.
  3. A few years ago I played FOnline, which is a Fallout 2 rip/remake https://fonline2.com/en/ Recently I came across http://heroesland.com which is the same but with Heroes of M&M III The latter is more like the thing I was thinking about making, although there was probably 1% chance for me to ever finish it. I'm looking for the licenses of both of those projects but I can't find it.
  4. I found the answer to my particular question thanks to the answers here. And also by finding this particular link: http://us.blizzard.com/en-us/company/about/legal-faq.html I assume it should be the same for other games as well. However, I found out that you can pretty much use assets from opensourced abandonware such as Siege of Avalon. Which would've worked great for me, in Diablo 2's place. But I decided to get my own assets.
  5. I want to make a free browser game using the sprites from another game. The project will not make any money and will be open source for the largest part. It may never see completion at all. So my question is this: Can I play around (in a public space) using the sprites from a popular game for a free fan project? Do I need to ask the developer for permission? Can they sue me even though I am not making any money off of their assets? I will describe a detailed scenario: You enter the URL diablo-fan-game.io in your browser and you see a character from Diablo 2, who you can send to run around. And all of this uses the graphics from the original game.
