Well, since the Coles don't own the rights to QFG, and Hero-U is not to be confused with any of their previous games, they are changing the location names and they need a new name for the Meep creatures.

Post your suggestions so we can help the Coles, guys :)

Y'know, now that I think about it... just like there is a justification for why the School of Heroes is somewhere else (although I forget the explanation), there might be a justification for why the Meeps are named differently too!

 

In Spielburg, they're called Meeps. In... whatever this country is named, they're called something different!

But the problem is the copyright thing. That's why they can't use the same names for locations and meeps and anything else related to QFG.

I knew that, Elsa. I was just justifying it in-universe.

Who owns it and why not just give permission?  It could encourage people to explore the classics.

Is that the pre-historic version of a Meep? ;)

Hmm... the Green Meep always reminded me of a hairy cabbage on legs. They could belong to the genus meepius holedwellerus. ;-)

 

Seriously, though... hmm. Mook? I'm just thinking in terms of a catchy, one-syllable name that has the same two vowels in the middle (e.g. Meep, Mook, Daat etc.) because of "We are happy Meeps, dwelling in happy holes. Don't worry, be Meepy." ;-)

 

Sigh... I'm very tired.  Need coffee... *insert coffee here* ;-p :coffee:

The original names are currently owned by activision/blizzard which was in the process of selling its company but ended up renigging, They keep the Quest for glory name copyrighted in case they ever want to make a game with the name... They dont even posess any of the content from the games but the legalities of them might still stand, QFG is burried in a huge pile of red tape and uncertainty.

I'm doing the same thing as the coles with my game, making hints of nostalgia and similar situations to QFG but nothing explixtly matching any of the assets or storyline.

But I know my game will never compare with the masters themselves " The Coles " who orchastrated the best game in existence to begin with!

I hope they have found a name for the meeps, I'm heading over to the Hero-U board to show some support!
