Publishers traditionally haven’t been fine with fans meddling in their IPs. While some projects that build on a foundation are tacitly acknowledge (or in the case of Just Cause 3’s multiplayer mod, openly endorsed), things like full-blown remakes are often met with swift legal action.


Currently, fans are attempting to remake Tomb Raider II in Unreal Engine 4, bringing 1997’s Lara Croft into the modern age. This week, we’re keeping it simple.


If fans were completely free from legal repercussions, what games would you like to see them remake?


Removed from bottom lines and other publisher influence, do you think fan projects give a clearer distillation of what a game means to those that love it?

Posted on wrong article on the front page so I'll cram it here:

I love fan made projects but it's so risky. The pokemon Uranium one was especially great.

But the devs have to be aware of the risk, though the companies do get a chance to win some goodwill allowing them.

I'd love a fan made 3D render of pokemon red and or blue.

RE (The original) there is vid of this being re-made in Unreal 4 engine? (might have been 3?)

Theme Hospital

Syndicate Wars

Midnight Resistance


What companies should do is instead of just shutting down fan re-makes (especially if good & showing potential with a following) is to pay the fans for their time/efforts in someway & release the dam thing
