Cease and desist: Nintendo shuts down fanmade tribute to The Legend of Zelda0 Comments
Earlier this week, we covered the impressive fan-made 3D Legend of Zelda clone titled The Legend of Zelda 30 Year Tribute that appeared online earlier this week. The project has already come to an end after Nintendo unsurprisingly delivered the games creators, Scott Lininger and Mike Magee, a cease and desist letter.
According to an update on Zelda30Tribute, the site where the game was hosted, the men behind the game are not upset about the outcome. “From the start of development, we knew this result could potentially happen. Nintendo has every right to protect their IP. No complaints from us, we had a blast working on this tribute and made some friends along the way,” they posted.
Since first being shared online, more than half a million people played this homage to The Legend of Zelda, which is an amazing feat for any beginning developer.
Lininger and Magee have also stated in a post on their game’s Facebook page that they are cleaning up any Nintendo properties from the current version and that they plan to release the code online for people to learn from and modify.
Sorry, Folks, Zelda30Tribute
