Chrono Trigger: Crimson Echoes
 
I'll just leave this here....

http://games.slashdot.org/article.pl.../05/12/0643208

Summary: Someone made a 98% complete hack of Chrono Trigger, essentially creating a fan-sequel to it. A few days ago, SquareEnix C&D'ed them. Also, why is this not on the news page already?

Arrgh! What the hell? Why do people keep doing awesome CT projects and announce it every step of the way? Just work on it in secret and quietly release it when it's 100% done. No preview hacks , no trailer videos, no screenshots, no public project website! Release under pseudonyms when it's done, THEN bask in how awesome everyone says it is. Why do people never learn?

Amen. I think having small teasers and info is a reasonable thing, but doing something every few weeks is ridiculous. Part of a game release ought to be the surprise of what all is in there.

This is why I've only shown the first area and boss of the game I'm making. BTW, I still love the tree graphics Isildur. You'll be in the credits. Hehe.

Yeah, I heard about this a few days ago...I wasn't sure if I should post it as news or not. It's really too bad...I've been looking forward to it. If Prophet's Guile, which was a sort of side story to Chrono Trigger detailing Magus' story after he summoned Lavos and got tossed back to the time of Zeal and what happened up to the time that Chrono and Co. got involved, was any indication, Crimson Echoes could have been great.

It seems they've taken down everything, including Prophet's Guile. I'm hoping I still have my patched ROM of that somewhere. I'd hate for it to fall by the wayside and never be seen again.

Chrono Trigger
 
This sucks. Chrono Triggers actually one of the very few games I like.

Yup, it royally blows. :banghead:
A part of me is hoping someone leaks out the 98% done version and it gets torrented, but on the other hand I worry that if that happens, S/E's lawyers will really sue the hackers, as they threatened. It would be terrible if any of the hackers' lives got badly messed up over this.
Dammit.

Dammit.

That's about where I'm at...I kind of want a leak, but at the same time I'd hate it if anything happened to the people who made it as a result.
