Locked: On fans & fangames
I have several original projects. 2 of them are listed on the first, page 2 more on the second, didn't bother searching past that.
People don't come here with such a serious developer attitude as you are currently displaying. Instead, it's a more laid-back, hobby attitude.
Call fan-games the easy way out, I don't care. Some people have dreams when they find Dream Maker, mine happened to be fan-games.
The reality you're ignoring, however, is that BYOND is a business. Tom has to do what it takes to protect and promote that business. Fan games are a dead end for BYOND. Promoting quality original games is a path to greater success.
wasn't aware that success only comes from original games. quality over originality, in my opinion, that's what makes a game what it is, be the unique training, battle, or skill systems. besides, in the technical view, originality doesn't really exist.
None of you pro-anime turds have an argument.
