Anyhow, it would be a joy to create a spiritual successor to the game! With an updated physics engine, gorgeous animations, modern graphics and sweet post-processing. A campaign twice as long with a decent story and soundtrack to accompany it. Proper multiplayer support and tools for the fans to create their own mods. Getting myself hyped here. Sigh.
It will happen in time. Whether it will be labelled Blade of Darkness or not is the question.
It would be like my dream came true: Blade of Darkness Remake, also improved with the features of Hyperborean mod.
About copyright, I would also like to know what they are, to avoid legal conflicts. I am writing a lot of new dialogues and I have also added more secret texts such as: "History of Dal Gurak" and "Hierarchy of Gods, created worlds and mortal beings". I would like to know if a permission or something is necessary, to work improving a story or a script of another author (s); being a collaborator or freelance.
If the story that I have improved would be officially used by them, I would like to know how would be the cooperative process or the work alone; and that they mention me in the credits according to what I contributed.
Well, I have no experience in this, that's why I have such doubts.
And if there is a problem with copyright, change the name of the new product, mention that BoD has inspired this new work; to thank the authors of BoD ... and I suppose that it is already solved in part.
Greetings and thanks.
