The team got the green light from Disney, EA and LucasArts.

Prove it.

You say it has all these permissions, but no source for the claims?

Got permission from a dead company, eh? Sounds legit...

Legal issues are out of the question in this production so long as they aren't making money from the game (selling it). Donations are allowed and are legal; it's the selling of the actual game that would be illegal.

What part of "aren't making money" is hard. Donations DO qualify as that, and cannot legaly be accapted. Same for TSLRCM as well really.

Simply look at large projects like Nehrim or Enderal for Oblivion and Skyrim. Those had plenty of donations and none were ordered cease and desists.

Did they use an established IP like Star Wars?
A quick google search learns not, so it's apples and oranges.

The Middle Earth Roleplaying mod got the cease and desist because of Shadow of Mordor.

Or because it's using an IP rather than making it's own setting. Maybe...

Not how the law works. That was one of the points of this post.

 

If they have permission from Disney (or whoever) I would like to see confirmation (even just in private so I can update the front page confirming it).

 

Until I see proof I will stick with reality.

You will need the original game to actually play this, because the game will copy over the voice, sound and music files from your installed Star Wars Knights of The Old Republic game folder, and will not be released with those files.

 

People keep saying this, but games will actually run without voice over, sound, and music files. So in reality, you don't need  the original Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic to play this game.

Apeiron will never be released, it's certain to receive a cease-and-desist sooner rather than later.

Now, now. It's just the KOTOR Apeiron project that's not gonna happen - we have no idea about the KNOTOR one.

Hehe...yeah...VERY little chance of it seeing the light of day.


Now there's a REAL developer.

So refreshing to see an article that doesn't gush about this so-called remake because the picture is pretty and actually takes it with a pinch of salt the whole project needs. To be fair, I can't help but wonder if all the garme jurnalists who post about this on their websites ever played the original game. It's only one of the most acclaimed games of 6th gen, not an obscure 8-bit computer puzzle game.

 

Even if we brush aside the fact that the game looks absolutely nothing like KotOR aside from loose themes (spaceship #11 = Endar Spire, sci-fi city #7 = Taris, Tattoine = ...well, Tattooine, but it looks far more Mos Eisley than Anchorhead which shouldn't look all that neon-ish and stuff because it's A MINING COLONY FIRST AND FOREMOST) - and it does - this project will never see the light of day. Shooters are easier to make than RPGs and Black Mesa is STILL unfinished to this day. Heck, Streets of Rage Remake, a remake of a 2D beat'em up into a slightly more advanced 2D beat'em up (its main feature was enhancing gameplay and featuring all the levels and characters from all the games) took about SEVEN YEARS to make. Apeiron will never ever see the light of day - and frankly, with the direction that it's going, I don't really want it to - and bear in mind that KotOR is one of my absolute favoritest games of all time.

Thanks. Glad you liked the article. 

 

I think it's important to be realistic about this type of thing. No need to add to the endless hype train

This'll end well.  I thought this was supposed to be free.  Did they make a deal with Disney, or are they just getting greedy due to paid mods returning to Steam?

You clearly didn't check the link. It's a re-made arcade game from the 90's that happens to also be called Apeiron.

So Sithspecter and I dropped on by the Apeiron stream to see how development was going.

As most other fans, we were very curious and had many questions.


Sithspecter, for instance was wondering if there were any plans for the new planets and VO as rumored...

Spoiler


Sleheyron: Confirmed!



I tried to dig further to see if they were going to add any other planets, but I didn't really get anywhere.

Spoiler


Malachor: Not confirmed



Sithspecter tried as well:

Spoiler


No dice.



Things died down for a bit, and the streamer Taylor, voiced his dislike of twi'leks. I'm pretty disappointed finding out that he's a xenophobe.

Spoiler


I hate to go SJW on people, but I have to call out bigotry when see it.



The stream picked up again though when one of the members mentioned one of the more problematic areas of the original:

Spoiler


THIS IS HUGE, GUYS



SithSpecter is on board

Spoiler




But that would be REALLY expensive.

Spoiler




Or at least really time consuming

Spoiler


All the more reason to anticipate this mod.

Things died down for a little bit, and I got to chatting with the locals

Spoiler





But finally to the point: Sithspecter got an anonymous tip and a screenshot of some of the remodeled weapons.

Spoiler


But no one seemed to mention or comment on it, which proves its legitimacy.



I mean just look at these:

Spoiler


Could it be that Poem Studios has some legitimate talent on board?



All the more reason to try to jump on board. Taylor says that they are looking at resum├ęs of developers and modelers.

How intriguing! Sithspecter and I inquired further:

Spoiler

Spoiler




He didn't want any of my skills, clearly but Sithspecter had made quite an impression by the end of the stream.

Spoiler




And I continued to make dick jokes

Spoiler





All in all, this proved to be a pretty informative stream, and if you guys found any of this informative, maybe we'll drop by again sometime.

A great stream was had by all! Mostly we learned how easy it is to build things in Unreal Engine. It's pathetically simple to build large areas, a monkey could do it.
