I know I don't participate in the forums as much as I should. But given the situation, I'd like to clarify some things so we're all in the same page.
The email I received last thursday was from Paul Havel of Miller and Nash. The title of the email mentioned a DMCA takedown notification, but the email included a list of demands from Nintendo.
In this email, they do mention the update and the prior DMCA notices. So it's clear that this is not part of an automated process getting false positives triggered by screenshots or metadata.
I chose to comply with the demands, to avoid legal conflict.
AM2R won't be developed any more, there will be no more updates nor new releases in any platform. This includes the source code.
Strangely enough, Confrontation isn't mentioned at all, and it wasn't affected by all this situation.
The soundtrack will be available, eventually. There will be a lossless option, besides the regular mp3 downloads. I'll let you know on the blog once that's ready.
As for the future, I started a new project from the ground up, and I'm expanding some of the established systems in AM2R. It'll take some time to get some showable material, but it'll be something original.
AM2R was something special for me, and I do appreciate the passion and dedication you guys have about the project. But right now, for me, it's time to move on. I'll be focusing my time and effort in the future.
I want to thank all of you, for your support, suggestions and criticism. The positive feedback after each demo drove the project forward. Being motivated was a challenge sometimes, and here I always found good people with good ideas. I'll be around, even if I don't post often.
