If you are a member of this mod, can demonstrate that it is being actively developed and will be able to keep this profile up to date with the latest news, images, videos and downloads, please contact us with all details and we will consider its re-activation."

"Outer Heaven recently announced it got word from Konami that it’s free to continue its work under one condition: Outer Heaven can’t make a profit or accept donations for the project."

That's two conditions.

that sucks...but they most likely didnt want to do it and receive nothing in return

Kenshin_BATT0USAI1169d ago

This is most likely it. They probably wanted to profit via donations, but since Konami gave that condition they said 'screw it'

Maybe if they were smart they would do it and get known. That way later it be easier to get funded for their own project but if they expected to cash on someone else franchise then they are dumb for thinking that.

I disagree Kenshin. Anyone but an absolute idiot who does mod works knows full well that you cannot make a profit on mod work. It's one of the mainstay rules of the mod community and has been a rule forver and a day.

I think what happened was Konami shifted, not changed their minds and reached out to them to make this mod an official project that Konami will sell tpo the public. The mod was cancelled as this becomes official development work.

Want to do a fan project? Great! Make your stuff, fund it yourself, go make your movie, game, or whatever. But in no way is it ok to do some kind of crowdfunding or earn a profit from the final release. If they can't accept that then they should be ceasing it. Just like that guy that was making 3d prints of Final Fantasy 7 characters and selling them.

Damn, I so wanted them to correct that "I feel asleep" line in the game too!
