Some silly crap going on between LuegoLu3go (making the game Nogalious) and 4mhz who are making these cool looking games and from what Redirac translated for me from all the spanish tweets it does seem LuegoLu3go are being kinda jerky.
Title: Re: Malasombra, Lady Phoenix, Operation Alexandra - New games announced!
Post by: robcfg on 19:03, 19 April 18
As far as I know, Luegolu3go has threatened to initiate legal actions against 4mhz for plagiarism.

4Mhz have released a statement (in Spanish):

Post by: robcfg on 00:33, 20 April 18
Similar statement by LuegoLu3go studios: https://www.luegolu3go.com/blog/comunicado-oficial


In my opinion, if they are so trigger happy, they should be using that energy to develop the damn game.


They behave as if they were a very big game company and they haven't released a single game yet...


Oh well, I guess there's nothing else to see here, moving on.

Post by: keith56 on 00:39, 20 April 18
Claiming plagiarism on low-res 8 bit pixel art is absurd, 99% of 8 bit games look, and play like something else, if the game engine's code was copied byte for byte, or game itself was ripped off - that would be one thing, but a few sprites? on a non-commercial game???

Good luck on your next kickstarter guys!

So :

Germany : Drama over alternative OS on CPC.

France : Drama between demogroups/clans.

UK : Drama between Speccyfanboyz and CPCmaster-race.


Spain : Drama between retrogames makers on obsolete systems because they both use some overused mémés things (omg, spiders in caverns ? omg, tiles of stones? omg adventurer sprite.... you stole my ideas !!! I invented RickDangerous and Prehistorik before all of you !)

And we shall call this conflict the Spanish Civil VaporWars...


(ok not cool to joke about that but what should I do then ?)


Need a translated version...
But is that some sort of "patent troll" tactics?

Can someone translate ansd post here both parties pretentions and claims ?






Anything to comfess, Greece ?
I am sure you also have a fair share of dramas... :picard:



I wasn't quite sure it wasn't a joke, obviously not.

will have to redesign some tiles and sprites I guess.
Title: Re: Malasombra, Lady Phoenix, Operation Alexandra - New games announced!
Post by: ||C|-|E|| on 01:31, 20 April 18
It looks like a complex situation, although I must admit that I find surprising these kind of problems when we are talking about Amstrad games, and it seems that I am not the only one. Even in the worse case scenario (both games using a few identical or similar assets) would that do any harm to the studios involved in making them? Would that change the number of copies they are going to sell? I don´t think so...
Title: Re: Malasombra, Lady Phoenix, Operation Alexandra - New games announced!
Post by: keith56 on 02:12, 20 April 18
Seeing as they got their money via kickstarter before development, I can't see how... If there was blatant plagerism, they could have said 'Hey, you're stuff looks like ours... We hope you're going to give us credit for inspiring you!' and got some free publicity.

Reputations are built over years, and destroyed in seconds... threatening hobbyist developers in the community you're hoping will buy your product is not going to go well
Title: Re: Malasombra, Lady Phoenix, Operation Alexandra - New games announced!
Post by: ervin on 02:24, 20 April 18
This is utterly ridiculous... wow.
Especially considering that Nogalious will be released across a variety of platforms, with different graphics in the different versions.

I feel kind of silly for having supported the kickstarter now...

Even if they were technically in the right (And I don't think they were) they should not have resorted to legal threats as a first response.

It shouldn't even be a about "right or wrong", but self preservation for their company... who's going to want to do work for their company now, or even help them for free? knowing that this is how they respond to disputes?

Just a quick version of the facts for people who doesn't understand spanish:
  • Javier from 4MHz makes an agreement to colaborate on LUEGOLU3GO after meeting Raúl in RetroPixel Málaga.
  • Javier shows Raúl a mockup of how they can improve Nogalious using some graphics from one of their current projects (Malasombra).
  • There is a misunderstanding and Raúl thinks they can use the graphics in the CPC version of Nogalious.
  • 4MHz makes an announcement about their projects and Raúl gets mad when they see Malasombra graphics.
  • Raúl sends Javier a legal document written by his attorney to remove the graphics from Malasombra (!!!).
It's VERY LOGICAL, right?  :picard2:

Thanks for clearing things up. How pathetic though!

IMHO LL has always been a bit full of shit. The new Dinamic, that KS (bad start, funny ending), getting collaborators from all over the scene, ...is all a bit BS.

It was never for me, so good luck and *ignore*. After this last episode I can't help it, their reputation is clear and I think the sooner they stop messing with the retro community, the better for all.

Stay away from them.

I agree with you, LL doesn't seems to a good game studio: too much hype and too few facts. Nogalious is a very mediocre game and they are presenting the game like something big.

Yeah, I didn't really like the way they went about things. And who coughed up the final €15k in the Kickstarter to suspiciously take them over the line in the final 2 days?

Something tells me it wasn't genuine backers....

Ah, interesting. Didn't realise that they'd been up front (or rather found out...) on this topic.

Once those people call in their debts, I wonder how much of the campaign money is left? Enough to develop and publish the game still? Kickstarter takes 5% of the proceeds and they may lose another few % on their payment fees. If they need to pay those people back, they could be down around €1500.

I did think that their target was a bit ambitious for an unknown retro game.

Historically, Spanish coders do not create on the cpc + / gx4000 range, probably du to their poor success in Spain. I have always appreciated their use of mode 0 and mode 1 on the classic hardware.

On the McKlain sound page, the malasombra nes-tune recently published is great.

malasombra canceled due to legal problems
What a pity. How this? It doesn't look like being related to any know game.

I think it is canceled only because it is now a NES game. As I have understood, the legal issue was about using Malasombra gfx on an other production, not the invert.

That's crazy! Or maybe they had problems finishing the game on CPC?!?

That's not the problem at all. As Richard said, they just decided to try a new system.
Malasombra being briefly canceled due to legal reasons was one of the most bizarre moments we probably have seen on the spanish CPC Scene. 4MHz got indeed a cease & desist letter from an "international developer studio" who had at that point 4MHz's main programer as an adviser.So they mainly sent openly a letter to one of their colaborators instead of resolving whatever problem it was on private.

Funny enough they failed up to today to provide the CPC port of their Nogalious game as it was promised in their Kickstarter (june 2018!) and they stoped any comunication since june this year, so we almost said goodbye to Malasombra (yes, i know, many of you said Goodbye since the project moved to the NES) for nothing.

Yeah, that Kickstarter looks more and more like a disaster...?

What a Kindergarten, sorry, that's sooo unprofessional. Sadly some hobbies seem to turn old men into school boys again. Therefore the 'legal issue' seems crazy to me. Of course it can be an 'excuse' for private problems.

However, if some company boycotts the CPC for NES, then we shall boycott them too and make that public.


EDIT: Out of curiosity... Does somebody have a working copy of the game anyway?
