Ever wondered what the original Metal Gear game from MSX would look like in a modern-day engine? Well, time to get of glimpse of it, as IndieDB’s “Boker” is currently working on such a remake.
How long until Konami shuts it down?
Konami should let this person create it since they are not going to be making any MGS AAA game.
Not very long :O...
This reminds me of that other fan remake that had David Hayter of all people onboard doing writing and voice work for it. Then it got shut down for no other reason than "We're Konami, please hate us."
Or the fact they were creating a game using a property they had no permission or right to use. The only fan remake that I know didn't get shut down was the black messa remake of half life 1.
The team said they had Konami's go-ahead to make it, then they later did a 180 out of nowhere and told them to f*ck off. That's why it was so ridiculous. I remember reading that, anyway.
Too bad konami are such dicks and hate fans.
That's going to be short lived. If you're using someone else's IP you should always wait to announce it when you're finished and are releasing it *for free. Until then, companies (especially Konami) will no doubt send a C&D notice. Of course they have every right to.
Change the name to outer Hell , solid snake to solid Hayter and big boss to Jack Power . Maybe change Gray Fox name to Gray Lox and hire Jadakiss to do the VO. I wanna see Konami copyright that.
I'm no lawyer but they could still probably send a C&D because it would still be using their assets/design.
My man Jada would sound funny as hell.
the same thing gonna happen with this like resident evil2 remake was, konami just pick up the remake and they do it.
Now that Konami isn't making any future AAA games, what the hell do they care? Sounds like they went belly-up frankly. AAA games to mobile games? Sorry, never going to work. On topic: This looks great. I wish we could get a proper Metal Gear reboot. Content like this should be admired, not shamed.
