A Cease and Desist update
I didn't post it but those interested and on my im list were informed of our studio receiving a cease and desist letter from SEGA over the game we were making "Shining Immortal" being the demo name. Of course the name was part of the CaD letter but it had to do with our idea of programing and how the game runs based on character battle interaction. We only allowed the character to carry a four item inventory slot and how we implemented it was a variation of the SF2 original source code. Someone leaked it out (we dealt with that person... and now we wont have to deal with him for anything else EVER) and Sega sent us a nice little letter telling us to change our "Adaptation". So we obviously have to come up with a better name, which I told them was just a temporary name anyway, and we are implementing an armor system.

We were even considering going balls deep and having each piece of armor function how your character interacts but we have all come to the conclusion that it will take even longer to make and is not needed at this point of the games creation. We are thinking of implementing armor and in the battle sequences you will see different clothing on the characters. But we tossed that too after configuring the time it takes to make each battle animation with different armor etc. We did decided on a hidden set of armor for each character and class to find to change their look. Again, still being discussed. But implementing the armor system and changing the inventory setup code will make this CaD issue vanish.

Sega = STINGY MOFO's. XD

You'd think they'd utilise the IP and make another true shining game then.

Chin up Maestro.  Thanks for the update.
"Re-skinning" with the armour change could be a quick way to go about it.

Well, the letter mentioned the release of other shining games, I figure they mean the Wii release of Shining Force 2 and Shining Force Feather.... but whatever. Re-skinning and making some slight tune ups here and there should fix everything, hopefully.

Good to hear from you Maestro, even if it's not such great news. I never thought Sega would send out a C&D, especially over Shining Force =/ I'd imagine a few changes should make them happier, and you should definitely frame the letter for posterity.
