Surviving Five Nights of FEAR - Game Lab ►

We live in an age of gaming where fans of a franchise can easily spin off their own games and post them for others to play. And it's AWESOME! Some of the best games I've played in the last year have been made by fans. And yet, as we've seen recently with Pokemon Uranium and Another Metroid 3 Remake...the original companies might not be so thrilled this is happening. And all of this is beginning to call up some… questions. So today, I'm asking the question "When is a fan game TRULY a fan game?" The answer to that question has changed A LOT recently...and it could produce some truly scary results. 

For more information on these court cases check out this article:

And after a video about copyright infringement...
He plays a copyrighted song from a copyrighted game made by a copyrighted company.
Oh, Mickey's Magic Mirror, will you ever die?
0:37 I recommend pausing and reading everything
I hate copyright laws now
(also I think nintendo should have, I dunno, BOUGHT the Uranium version!? It sounds AWESOME)
You know, i am pretty happy about this easy going Copyright law right now. It would be a shame if Developers shut down Games others made for free with no actual funding just because they are realy simmilar.

If i were that Developer i would contract these people and ask them if they may want to "Join the Ranks" and officialy release their game as either a Remake, Diffirent World or etc.

This would both support the Developer of the Fan Game and essentialy make it a total legal thing too as the Publisher/Developer would be under one roof and so on.
FNaF and Undertale remakes are all over the place! It's getting annoying.

Noonoonooo is sister location gonna die
Pokemon Uranium, huh? Fan games sure are odd things. Reminds me of the time I bought the pirated Pokemon Naranja Version from a swap-meet. It was interesting seeing the game based on the Orange islands, but sadly enough, there was an area early in the game where you couldn't even progress further after that. Been pretty long since then that I don't think I even have the GBA cartridge anymore. It's whatever since it was pretty cheap.

Neat stuff.

Please, you'll get a copyright strike if you EXIST.
safe to say freedom planet isnt going anywhere soon as sega dosent care about fan games as they hire fan game creators for their games now e.g sonic mania
Minearia FTW

This Mario Is Slightly less... Wait, SCOTT CAWTHON!?!?
The new Metroid 2 game on the 3ds was a bit disappointing. It was an amazing disappointment. It was everything we wanted in a metroid game, but, am2r did it better. I'm not sure if this is confirmed, but I swear to god that the overworld theme in the name Metroid game sounds exactly like the one used in AM2R.
Tereria is not a minecraft coppy tereria was made befor minecraft Minecraft was not supposed to be blocky and you can't copyright building because it was not a feature that they made nor surviving nor being at aked by zombies skeletons and slimes nor tools nor bosses just because they've got these things dosent meen there the same if you think anything else about it tell me
Keelan Barron
wait, so all of this mess started......because of a lazy judge!?
