A Remake of Moria in Graphics

Believe it or not this guy recreated moria graphicaly, the tiles look familliar though, but what I find suprising is he turned around and put it on for sale for download, wish he would have developed it for free.

The moria license should forbid him charging for this. I guess he ignored it.

I would guess it's a clone, not based on the original code? Or did I miss something?

Someone should give him this Tip for rogue-like novices : Charging for a roguelike is generally not done, and charging for a remake of an old free game is most definetly frowned upon.

I'm not sure who campbell is, and I'm not sure how you know that I know any lawyers, but the right way to deal with this is to bring it to the attention of David Grabiner, the current Moria maintainer (and therefore custodian of the licence). I find it hard to believe that David isn't already aware of it, but it wouldn't do any harm to drop him a line. I'll see if takk wants to do that, maintainer to maintainer.

I paid $5 for Dungeons of Dredmor and consider my money to be well spent. And there's a million console roguelikes going back over something like 25 years.

It's just the games that are genealogically descended from Rogue (i.e. started out by modifying its code or reimplementing it) that have generally been free.

Oh, you mean my mate Dave Cameron (he's just Dave to his friends). Yeah, I'll get in touch and ask him if he's losing sleep over an infringement of the Moria licence - good call.
