Question about Piracy

For the first time over the 4 years of Dragon Quest +'s development I've been told by others that this game may qualify as piracy. Now, I don't know the legal side of developing fan games for a company's IP but as long as I make sure that I note that graphics, sound, music, are not created by myself then I should be okay right?

I have a disclaimer in the game that shows up before the game even starts. I would never take credit for something I know isn't mine. It's just stupid. The people in question that contacted me say that this again, mind as well be piracy...but I'm not making a 1:1 copy like Woodus did with Dragon Warrior Remix which was done in RPG Maker 2k and served as my inspiration because I knew I could do better than that.

They also said if Square Enix knew about the game, they'd sue me up the butt. I'm like come on, this game is NOTHING compared to other games that have been made nor should it be seen as such. And it's FREE. It's not like I'm charging anyone for it. It's a labor of love for the series. I'm not worried that much but the people ini question were moderators on VGChartz.com so I guess they'd have some credibility but not much. They're people just like me.

Here's one of the mod's quotes:

"This is nothing more than Piracy. How about you remake a western game instead taking advantage of the Japanese people? If they were Americans they would sue you until you're bankrupt."

I know that my games don't use original art done by myself, albeit heavily edited. But...what do you guys think? Is this game on the path of piracy/infringement? If so, how can I make sure that it isn't without sacrificing the progress of the game?

I can defiantly see where you’re coming from

Oh I am liking the sound of this. I wonder if it will be as hard as the original.

By the way, can I as how you’re handling the translation?
It will be just as hard as the original but the extra content upps the challenge quite a bit. As for the text it will be ye olden middle-ages speech.
Lol sweet, I love Dragon Quest, so I hope this goes well! *Subbed* ^o^
Good, I liked the ye olden middle-ages speech. I wasn't keen on the DQ4 remake for the DS, because it was hard to understand what people were trying to say.
Hi, can you, in the future, makes a version with the current Dragon Quest name of Spell, like Frizz and etc, and japanese name of locations, items, and etc ? :)
That'd be really appreciate... ^^
Maybe in the future when I have nothing else to do. It might be in the final release but now way am I going back to change every Edrick to Roto as of now. Thanks for asking.
Wow:D This looks phenomenal! I've always loved a good Dragon Quest! Just one thing, don't you think that a menu like DQ has would be better?
Yeah, I can't quote you because I'm using a 3DS but
@Sierra
Yeah, i'm not that good with custom systems. Especially with 2k3. I'm planning one but i'd have to rework alot of events.
I just hope that the game lives up to its fans and the actual game.

The map graphics look really good! Are they rips? From Dragon Quest VI? Or did you draw them yourself?
@iddalai

Thanks and yes, most of the graphics are from Dragon Quest III and VI for the Super Nintendo. Some are edited and some are even drawn on microsoft paint. Thank goodness for Infarview.
Any clue when this will be done? I see target date, but perhaps a demo?
@bigtime

I wanted this game to be special when completed. Like an actual commercial game sort of. As of now the testers are the only ones who have gotten their hands on the 1.1b demo.

I really don't know if I'll make a demo for it. Hmmm... if I do it will be a random portion of the game though. I'll see what I can do.:D the third quarter of 2014 is a long wait huh?

Uuuuhh, Bro's fists of steel cut to the bone! :(
@Sabin1981

Whaddaya mean by ^
I just want to know, it's not you, it's me and my lack of jargon deciphering skills.
Sorry, FF7 quote xD Basically means the "Q3/2014 release" was like a devastating punch xD
@Sabin1981

That explains it. I've only played bits and pieces of FF7. I think I'll put together a little demo for y'all but the game itself on the demo will most likely be different than the 2014 release.
Yo, Ljink! If ya need any Dragon Quest info or help ya can always contact moi.
@JessicaAlbert13

Oh, hey Jessica, I'd really appreciate your help.

If you use paint then you should try iDraw3, it's really useful for pixel edit and better then paint on some aspects.

The game is looking good, good luck!
@iddalai

I've used iDraw3 for a short time and it was okay but for this game I mostly use the GameMaker 8 sprite editor. Thank you for supporting=D
