You know its funny, he did the same thing, basically he ripped the background and sprites from Maniac Mansion and enhanced the colors a bit thats all.
1. This was a team project not a one-man show.
2. We ripped the original backgrounds from MM but we didn’t replace them by 256-colour graphics of other games (like Tierra does). All of your graphic improvements were done by yourselves.
And, the character sprites don't look like they were updated at all.
In the original MM the characters had 4 frames per view – in MMD usually 9. Furthermore all characters got a colour update.
I believe part of LucasFan's reason for releasing this remake is to show people how 'easy' it is to use the original backgrounds from other games and replace it with a vga overlay.
Interesting theory. Actually we made this game because it was a lot of fun.
Obviously, this guy is jealous of Tierra's success.
Heh, yeah it’s true that MMD broke all download records (it got more downloads during a week than KQ2+ after a whole year) but that’s definitely not the reason why we did this remake. :wink:
