If it helps (it probably doesn't) the Fire Emblem creator has been using a recently released game engine known as SRPG Studio for his current project.

His own project seems to be coming along pretty well with it, but for the lack of an artist. If there are troubles with the BYO game engine direction and the language barrier isn't super awful, it might be a good alternative. Could also be a fine foundation for future fan projects, provided someone wants to help with localizing it for the monolingual among us. :)

Art, updates and progress are looking good, fellas. Keep it up!

SRPG Studio does look like a cool game engine, but (based on the promo video) it doesn't look like it's all that customizable (can't import own graphics and sound); then again, my Japanese knowledge is non-existent beyond what little I've gleaned from watching anime.

Man this is something I wish I could assist with...
Sadly I'm not much of a sprite animator (only 3D).
Oh well... Looks great guys keep it up, I played the demo and honestly can't wait
to see the final version, no matter how long it takes. (Since there is little chance SEGA will ever make a real Shining Force game again.)
I have a YouTube channel, check it out if your interested.

Kickstarter anyone? I know I would contribute money towards this. That first battle was brilliant!

Weird legal shit prevents us from going down that road, unfortunately.

Yeah: game development companies have to defend their copyright, or they'll lose it.

(Goofy OT aside: I *still* say that the final boss should have been named "Calzone"...and now I'm hungry. :D)

It's not that so much as I think either Broked is locked into some kind of conflict-of-interest clause or there is some other even more byzantine legal maze preventing it. I'm fuzzy on the details. Suffice it to say, based on what little I know of copyright/trademark law, nothing we're doing actually violates anything, but even if that weren't the case I'd prefer to not dance particularly close to any lawyer-fires.

It's not a Shining Game and you guys are drawing resources from scratch. What's the legal issue?

Edit: You can't copyright an idea. Blatant clones are a-ok. Just look at FEDA for a real world example. As long as you're not using any of Sega's work, code, or trademarks you're in the clear.

No I'm not using anything from my job, that would definitely be illegal. However, I'm under a contract that stipulates that if I make money from an outside project then that project becomes property of my employer.

Which I kind of like since it doesn't for us to make the tough decision about whether or not to do it.

And it saves us the hassle of deciding who gets paid what. That just wouldn't end well for anyone.

Hell. Everyone gets a little extra for having to deal with me.

Having my life enriched by everyone's presence is payment enough.

SFC itself could always benefit from donations if other arrangements are problematic.

Whew.

I was a little bit concerned that you'd developed esteem for your fellow man.


That said - We're all still working, all behind-the-curtains and whatnot. Progress is being made on the script, I'm still doing stuff in the visual department.

Don't want folks thinking that we're not moving forward. Don't get me wrong, progress is slow, but progress is progress.

Release or Riot! :)

Out of curiosity, how far will the next demo take you in terms of the overall game?
Nonetheless, I'm looking forward to it! Keep up the hard work everyone!
