So fan art anf fiction only?
« on: September 25, 2009, 05:13:08 pm »
I was wondering if we could start programming things again. Now I don't mean hacks or anything of the Chrono series, but I mean could we have in Kajar Labs a place for programming, like original fan video games. I mean we only got shut down for Chrono hacks right?

No. I meant if for example if I wanted to make a game and I programmed the whole thing I could post progress here. I miss oooing and aweing at amazing Fan Games. Maybe we could start our own game, that has nothing to do with the Chrono Series.

Both original code and modification Chrono fan games have been halted by Square Enix legal orders, so the precedent isn't too promising on the Chrono front -- although it will be interesting to see what happens with the RPGMaker Chrono fangames in progress.

As for something non-Chrono, it will be difficult to get lots of people on board for a new intellectual property; that's the whole draw of working with an already existing property -- there's already an energized fanbase, and if a subset of that fanbase has the appropriate skills, an energized production team.
