What happened to that bootleg Pokemon hybrid MMO/FPS thing with the not-mon exploitation and murder? That looked wild

Pretty low bar for the Hero tag.

Apparently some heroes wear Cheeto stains.

Because so many idiots think that if you don't charge for it then you aren't infringing.

They *have* to enforce their trademark or risk losing it to the public domain.

Serious question, does being an obvious parody theoretically protect the makers from lawsuits?

Dude wasn't even doing it with an expectation of selling it, or even it being good.

He's just doing 'I'm learning unreal so knocking out some practice projects and this one seemed silly enough to show people'.

Every game dev learning a new engine does shiat like this, you grab a load of assets that are out there and make a thing. I've got practice projects full of art from other games (mostly metal slug, there's some damn fine sprite work in there to use in prototypes).

But he made a video of it, and Nintendo have a big new Pokémon game coming out shortly so... from a marketing perspedtive I can see what they're thinking.

This was just asking for Nintendo come down hard on them.  The timing of the videos was not great either.

This is fark, so that's to be expected.

Worked out pretty well for the guys who made Sonic Mania; that's more or less just what happened.

That said, if I was to ever do some sort of Nintendo fan game, I'd probably release it through Tor and leave it unattributed.

SEGA is kinda weird like that and the guy had already been working with them for years, as he built the engine the mobile ports used (and later, Mania, obviously)

IANAL, but while parodies are protected, most people can't afford the lawyers to defend the parody. And YouTube would rather not pick a fight even though Nintendo almost certainly doesn't have a real case.

Time to make a parody.  There's plenty of silly stuff in Pokemon to mock, and parody's protected.

INAL, but there are protections under the Fair Use laws.  But you have to make damn sure it actually fits the legal definition of a parody (or other Fair Uses) and have used it correctly.  Even if you're in the clear, they can still make it so difficult or expensive for you to defend that you just give up trying to.  So in that sense it doesn't protect you from getting involved with the suits but may protect you from losing them... if you have enough cash or the backing of someone that does.

Though to me, the clip doesn't look like a parody so much as just using the concepts.

Hopefully someone on here with correct legal knowledge can give a better answer & point out anything I got wrong.

Nice. Slapping that birdmon to launch egg-bombs from its ass is an inspired touch

In all honesty I'm fairly sure we still haven't seen a single moment of actual gameplay, even in the few snippets that look like it.
