Chrono Trigger: Crimson Echoes (Cease and Desist Letter from Squeenix)

Post by Magixion on Mon May 11, 2009 5:03 pm

On May 8, we received a wide-reaching cease and desist letter from Square Enix, Inc. As with Chrono Trigger: Resurrection and Chrono Trigger Remake Project's letters, we have uploaded the letter for viewing here as a matter of public interest.

We have decided to comply with Square Enix's demands. Most of the Chrono Compendium webpages and forums will be unaffected by these changes. However, our compliance has the practical effect of ending the Compendium's support for ROM modification projects of any kind, with regard to copyrighted Square Enix works such as Chrono Trigger, Radical Dreamers, and Chrono Cross. We have already destroyed all known copies of Chrono Trigger: Crimson Echoes and other modifications and projects. We have also shut down and made inaccessible any discussion boards used for the development of ROM-hacking fan projects on this website, including:

* Chrono Trigger: Crimson Echoes
* Chrono Trigger: Prophet's Guile
* Retranslation of Chrono Trigger
* Chrono Trigger Re-amped
* Chrono Trigger Rebirth
* Chrono Trigger Azala Style

Affected parties may contact the administration in private if there is any personal information they wish to retrieve from the deprecated forums.

We do not accept the validity of Square Enix's claims, nor the legal rationale underpinning their position. Nonetheless, we are complying with their demands so as to avoid the expenses and burdens of litigation, because, frankly, they can afford a frivolous lawsuit more than we can.

We thank all those who have been involved in the affected projects for their spirited energy over the years, and we look forward to the day when non-profit, fan-made projects will be properly recognized as a fan-base boon and marketing opportunity tool, rather than silenced as innocent victims of prohibitively interpreted copyright law.

Sincerely,

ZeaLitY and the Chrono Compendium Staff

So, this was an entirely fan made game that was supposed to be the spiritual successor to Chrono Trigger. These people have been working on this game for upwards of 5-6 years and just weeks before it was supposed to be released (May 31st, 2009), Square Enix sent them a Cease and Desist letter threatening to prosecute them. Now, I have followed this fan work for years and was finally anticipating this release, and now Squeenix has shattered what could have been the best thing for the Chrono series in years.

As fellow game developers, I can see only bad things coming from this. It has given me new inspiration to work on our project and to make it the best game we possibly can. Let us truck on my fellow team members.

Yes I know, I too followed the project with anticipation. It is a harsh time indeed that fan works praising the original get pounded right into the ground, especially since it was made with so much care, and would serve to promote the Chrono franchise, rather than steal from it. I'm pretty relieved that the Chrono Compendium took this major setback as a mature community, instead of whining like some kind of little fanclub. Though I do find it sad that they had to bring down ALL fan projects.

Oh well, here's hoping SE is making the next true sequel of the Chronoverse.

Seriously. It was a major blow to indy game developers out there. Though, as you said, I am also glad that the Compendium handled it maturely. I really wish that Square Enix would try to work out some sort of "fan license" that would have made this game come to fruition, but sadly, I doubt it will happen.
