The problem with this idea is copyright still. Smurfs and basing it on Resident Evil. Earlier in this thread I suggested a new name for the game, so they couldn't have you for the title.

"Re-Generation Evil" / "Regeneration Evil"

Listed the 2 ways in which it could be displayed.

@MigaTech; you do realise that rare_j was being sarcastic when he suggested this?

...and there's good reason why he said the above.

Seems that you don't know the story about poor hipoonios who decided to make a PD game based on Smurfs and ended up getting sued by Disney

See these threads:

a) Smurf Rescue Released! (New Amiga game)
b) Got sued for an AMIGA game made with BACKBONE in 2015!

You're crazy if you think Capcom wouldn't come down even harder than Disney did

No I didn't know about this, as it all happened before I was a member of EAB.

What happened to hipoonios in the end?

Also, it is a shame they did that to him, at best they should of relicensed the game taking a % of the sales. Sometimes these big companies can take their copyright too far.

Different story though, when they steal a small players idea, all because they got deep pockets!

He's serving time in prison for trademark theft. You really need to do your research.

It has nothing whatsoever to do with being big vs being little - the rules are that if you allow even one instance of trademark theft or abuse to go unpunished, you will lose that trademark forever. So the vast majority of companies go all guns blazing when it happens - they don't want to lose ownership of what their company either created or paid good money for.

This is NOT entirely true! I have had some of my work stolen and from big organisations! They place claws in the contract whereby it makes everything work for them.

When a big organisation/company take smaller artists work, they always get out of it! Deep pockets and more knowledge. Yet they kick off big time, when their dirty deeds are conducted on them!

Capcom never stopped that simple version of RE featured in Amiga Format, back in the day. What was that all about?

When it comes to research how much can you do? You are not going to pick up on everything. I could of done my research and still missed the hipoonios case!

After some of the things discussed here, this is probably the nearest Amiga related version of RE, we are going to get!
