It started with a proof of concept trailer a year ago, now the group is tackling a full-blown web series to relive Final Fantasy 7.
Wow looks interesting but I expect the Square Enix lawyers have already mobilised. Here is the proof of concept trailer from 2012. http://www.youtube.com/watc... I would back it but SE won't let it happen. If it had an official nod I would back it now.
That's true, though if they've gotten this far, they've probably gotten in contact with Square Enix to cover some bases. I hope they get the chance to do it nonetheless.
I'd like to see this happen...and if it did I would watch it and back it. Im waiting for one more really good FF7 project, whether it be a game, reboot, movie, cartoon, whatever. And when its finally done and over, I want people to give a standing O applause, appreciate it for what it is, and move on. FF7 was a great game, but if SE has absolutely no interest in pursuing a reboot, sequel, spin-off or any kind of continuation of the game...then people need to let it go and enjoy the other FF games.
FF7 remake is SE's trump card.
I think Square Enix won't let them. It's a commercial use of their intellectual property.
was slightly interested in tll i read " unofficial " so don't mater even if it gets funded, if SE want sue, shut them down, etc, etc your out your $$$ an the project stops.
(DP) One of the biggest questions we receive is about legal implications and Square-Enix. People always remind us of the infamous Chrono Trigger fan remake that happened a few years ago – a bunch of fans reversed engineered the game, and updated the sprites and music etc. They had a whole new story written, and over 30+ hours of gameplay ready to be distributed to fans everywhere. The only problem was, they were freely distributing the original ROM, which was copyright infringement, and the project was shut down at Square-Enix’s request. Now, what we’re doing is very different. We are simply taking one medium, and transforming it to another medium. We’re doing exactly what millions of people do every day on YouTube when they cover a song – simply doing a different version of it. We respect Square-Enix deeply. We have no intentions of stepping on toes, disrespecting their intellectual property and copyrighted material, or even making a cent off it. We want to bring the entire Final Fantasy community together, to transform this amazing tale so that millions of people, who never experienced it back in 1997 on PlayStation, can fall in love with the story and characters. (MG) In addition to Gio’s answer, Square-Enix has also set a precedent in regards to their cooperation with non-profit, fan-made projects with their recent blessing for OCRemix to continue fundraising on Kickstarter for the Final Fantasy VI album, “Balance & Ruin”
