lets hope he's not getting the boot for announcing that sequel?
but it was announced in E3 2017
You didn´t watch E3 did you?
I heard this is what you do in gaming programs. The final thing is to make a game to show your skills. Or if you're an art person, some 3D models and animations or something.
That's awesome! A loss comes a big gain.
As a guy who watched am2r progress for 6 years this is great news and am2r is a great game if you can find it
When did Sega hire a fan re-make creator?
Sega hired Christian Whitehead aka the Taxman to work together on Sonic Mania. He created some Sonic Fangames and released them on Sonic Retro before getting hired by Sega.
Yup. Pretty cool story, especially since they're pretty much getting to make a fangame with Sonic mania but it's official and fully backed by Sega.
Yes. Sonic is in the right hands. I´m looking forward to this game.
I've never seen anyone with one on the go, I personally think the Switch will only sell around 25 million max (and that's pushing it) before it dies off almost completely in about a year and a half after release. My dad had never even heard of it until I mentioned it last month or so ago.
Also, relating to the topic, this is great news! I hope fan developers are more recognised in the future x)
I agree with this to an extent. It makes sense for Nintendo to issue a takedown notice for a fan remake of a game they'd already had to have been planning on remaking, in my opinion...
The other thing is... most fan games are absymal and most people behind fan games are hobbyists who usually know little to nothing about game development and use tools that make it super easy to make games whenever possible; even so far as ripping and using assets from existing games or making really terribly made RPG Maker games. Those people should not be taking the place of those who are learned and hone essential skills in game development like 3d modelling and programming, for example. There are some legitimately super talented fan game creators out there (one of my favorites, Area-ZERO (team behind Touhou Sky Arena games), immediately comes to mind), but they're more so the exception rather than the rule. When I see people say this about people who make certain Pokémon fan games, I honestly shudder at the thought. I think if they're truly among those super talented fan game creators, of course they should be given opportunities and praise, but it's not wrong for copyright holders to take down their work when necessary either. I'm rambling, sorry.
TL;DR Talented fan game creators of course deserve this chance. They're the minority, though. They'll be discovered as long as they work hard and show their talent and persistence.
I did not watch in the traditional sense, but I was keeping up with news updates. What is ironic is that I caught the Metroid news, which apparently was a low-profile announcement, but I missed the Ori announcement.
There have been many cases of hackers getting jobs after the court cases, and it is often said "ideas are worthless but a demo on the other hand". Interesting combo of the two there.
He seems like a perfect man for this kind of job position, I wish him well!
Wow, that's fantastic! Good luck with the new job!
