Re: Knight Rider: The Fan Game

I apologize for the silence from my end. I've just made a blog post on theknightrider.com explaining what's going on. Yes the game is still making progress. We just recently completed a major milestone we've been trying to achieve for over 2 years. It took a year swapping to the Unreal Engine to acc...

Re: current status of knight rider the fan game ???

Not mad at all :) and yes I have 100% permission to use Nick's artwork, he is a co-producer after all. Some good ideas here, and we have time to figure out what we want to do that's for sure. My major hang up is simply money. I'm doing everything I can to start my own business that I can handle whil...

Re: current status of knight rider the fan game ???

No cease and desist offically. We're just playing this one close to the chest and working on everything in private now instead of being openly public and accidentally inviting a C&D. I've never been good at things like public relations and talking to people and I hate social media and what it's beco...

Re: Knight Rider: The Fan Game

I wish the world worked that way AppleMacri1980 but sadly it doesn't. One things for sure, I'm continuing to work on this in private. How it will get released is just going to have be a discussion for another day. Hopefully when things are closer to being finished I can get in touch with the proper ...

Re: Knight Rider: The Fan Game

Maybe not calling it something obvious like Knight Rider The Fan Game would be a good start. I'll have to do some thinking and tinkering. Hope you're all looking forward to "Night Driver".

Re: Knight Rider: The Fan Game

I don't see them really protecting their property though. If you have an android I can easily find knight rider and back to the future apps that are being sold with no license. No one is shutting down replica part makers. Plenty of people making and selling stuff on etsy. Plenty of replica plates et...

Re: Knight Rider: The Fan Game

Most fan games I would say are free. They don't really care according to this lawyer. They may not even want to bother you in the first place but the fact that it's their intellectual property means they are obligated to protect it and that means taking you to court. What the 8chan guys are missing ...

Re: Knight Rider: The Fan Game

It's appreciated, I'm definitely open to ideas at this point. I haven't released anything yet (thank jebus) there are some private alphas floating around out there but that's it.

I was so ignorant of the copyright law I actually thought I'd be covered by fair use. Talk about a wake up call.

Re: Knight Rider: The Fan Game

Believe me that's the first thing on my mind. How do you do this without disappointing everyone? Knight Racer I think bottom line that's what it's going to come too. But wow the money and 1000s of hours spent on that 5th season idea. It's very heart breaking for me. That's not to say we didn't prepa...

Re: Knight Rider: The Fan Game

Not over, but can't say I'm not concerned either. I'd drasticly have to change the plot and characters likeness to where it's almost not reconigzeable anymore. At which point you have to almost ask what's the point? We've been at this for years trying to get the characters and car just right and now...

Re: Knight Rider: The Fan Game

There was actually a pretty good reedit AMA with a very popular video game attorney Ryan Morrison. While good for the information that was shared, very disappointing and devastating for the future of our project. He's pretty much confirmed NBCUniversal can ruin my life at any moment. Even though I'v...

Re: Knight Rider: The Fan Game

As said can't really go that road with a fan game. As far as cars? Way too many list. So far with different variations and combos there is about 120 american cars, trucks, vans, and semis that are era correct. 20 of which are star cars from other famous t.v. shows and movies. Sadly we made them with...

Re: Knight Rider: The Fan Game

Slow on the website, we're finalizing some character art that we need for the website design itself. On top of that both Daan and I have things going on in our personal lives. My daughter graduates high school in 2 weeks so we're busy preparing for that and Daan is just swamped in hours with his rea...

Re: Knight Rider: The Fan Game

Ha no kidding. This would make one hell of a piece of evidence against me if I was doing this for profit. Though the amount of (for profit) copyright breakers on the play store is staggering especially with Back to the Future. I'm really surprised they don't do a better job of policing their older p...

Re: Knight Rider: The Fan Game

We state the game is parody. I don't know if that holds up since I'm not changing names. I had considered making all text external xml files so uh some modder could easily change names if we had to go that route. I'm already doing this for the cars in game if you see where I'm going with that.

Re: Knight Rider: The Fan Game

Being a 100% honest we haven't publicly released a demo or beta for legal reasons. My fear of being shut down by NBCU makes me overly cautious about what I release. If we do get the dreaded knock it off letter from them I'd rather the game be done and out in the wild of the internet than be killed o...

Re: Knight Rider: The Fan Game

msKen, do you think to post the game on Steam for free? Unfortunately indie developers were taking advantage of greenlight on Steam by using bots and multiple fake accounts to release their games under multiple titles and publishers when in reality they were selling the same game with a different n...

Re: Knight Rider: The Fan Game

There won't be a desert in this game aside from the opening credits. We wanted to focus more on the coastal/country/suburbs. I think the last 2 official games we got and the game that is heavily influencing our game (mad max) burnt me out on the desert location. Like I said if you guys like the game...

Re: Knight Rider: The Fan Game

Yes it's intentional to the plot. The first mission that kicks everything off is on his 5th anniversary of being shot in the face causing his transformation to Michael Knight. It's also close to the date the show would of aired in real life if it had been picked up for season 5. So you can either se...

Re: Knight Rider: The Fan Game

The game starts on September 26th 1987. We never officially see Stevie's grave on screen that I'm aware of, so we don't know the exact date of her death. I would say it's been about 8-9 months since she died. If you like to see The Scent of Roses as the season finale like we do, then its been about ...

I'm not gonna make any friends here but I have no love for silly popup mode or c mode. But they are in the game since I'm a nut for detail lol. We haven't done much mesh wise for a season 5 Kitt. Most of the first episode you play as season 4 Kitt with all his season 4 features before he's um dispos...

Re: Knight Rider: The Fan Game

That last photo is from RC3s funeral which causes Michael to leave the foundation. Original script we threw out it was just too dark and gloomy to be considered knight Rider. This is one of the choice systems we were talking about. In this scenario Michael has to choose between saving a mass group o...
