    recently i have been playing my favorite RPG for snes, chrono trigger for about 2 days stright(rom version). soon enough(with the help of google) i came across this
    yes, i dont know if this is old news or not, but theyve been making a chrono trigger resurrection, not sqaure enix, but some fans. this s probably one of the coolest fanmade games ive seen. unfortunately ive looked about it some more, and it mentions here that rather than hiring them or buying out thier game, square enix has shut them down. i cant reakky say anything more than this sucks arse.

    I'm not surprised. In fact, Blizzard's been doing it as well. So don't think your work is endangered too.

    Old news

    They're not the only group. Ever heard of Ocarina of Time 2D?

    Shut down by Nintendo

    But yeah, I've hated Square Enix ever since they ran the FF series into the ground after the joyful greatness that was FF 9, which was made after the medicore 8 and 7 (WHOAMAGOD I CALLED FF7 MEDICORE. I'LL CALL IT OK WHEN IT GETS A PROPER ENDING), which followed after the awsome 6, which came out around when the OH MY GOD ITS SO AWSOME IT BURNS MY EYES OUT Chrono Trigger came out

    But yeah, 10 sucks. As does 10-2, and 11 is just too damn group-orientated

    :cry:

    That's a shame...
    Chrono Trigger is also my favourite game on Snes
    That one would have been "dream come true" game
    Curse one Square Enix! May it rot in this so called 'hell'

    The technical reason for all this is that they feel that it will take future revenue away from them from future releases. Thats the "offical" reason. If you ask me, its bacause they got pissed that they got upstaged.

    Take project revolution for wc3 for example. Blizz would be out of their minds NOT to hire that team and adopt that mod as an offical Blizz-endorsed game when it comes out...but how much you bet that'll get shut down (if it hasnt already)?. Companies have been doing this for a long time.

    Did the makers of those projects try to make money off of them? I heard that the reason behind the Zelda shutdown was because of something involving money. Personally, if I made some really popular game and fans made their own fan game based on it, I wouldn't care as long as the creator doesn't try to make money off it and gave credit to the original creator (for making the source of inspiration). If the game in question is of high quality, I'd try to hire the person.
