Make a remaster version of this game

Greeting the community,
I love the series DFBHD as well as DFBHD:TS , but the graphic is a little out-dated and so I decided to make a remastered version of this game. So I tried to contact novalogic company to ask for permission but somehow I don't seem to find the contact information nor being able to contact them

NovaLogic no longer owns the rights to the games. It's now owned by https://www.thqnordic.com/

A remastered edition would be very tough. Will you work alone or you are working as a team?

If i say the truth, always stick with a simple designing plan. Most of the indie guys ends with a failure after a period of game development, because once they start making the game, they start dream for larger aims, and thats where the problem lies. And as for the models, they are a few free to use sites with more than 100,000 models. You can bring the models from there if you are unable to get a proper model designer. And anyways which engine will you use for the remaster? Unity? Unreal? Torque?

Yeah thanks for your advice I'm using Unreal Engine as it is best suitable for FPS games

Well yeah it should takes tons of times. Luckily DFBHD isn't a very modern and multifunctional like COD or BF so it might be easier to make ( hope so lol ). And besides I'm a first-year college student so I'm planning to release the game on Steam after 3-4 years

In order to make a lot of money from it, you have to make some nice cover posters, gameplays. From my game development experience, i've come to know that those games which are half baked are the big hits because of their attractive posters, and those indie games who had the potential to be a big hit were at the bottom because their marketing weren't as appealing for the customers.

So why dont you make a game which is not legally related with DF. I mean, you can still include those similar classic objectives like DF did, and invent a new series instead which is very much similar to the roots of the DF franchise.

Hmm. The license is required for using something that is theirs. But i dont even know how would they detect their very own sounds since there are over a thousand of such millitary games which had the similar voices and music that DF had.

Well it's very easy to identify their sounds if you have played DF a couple of times. I have think of remaking the sounds of characters but I think it is the music and the sounds of DF that partly makes up the game

Well yeah, DFs sounds were kinda like we hear the voices in radios :v The recent games have voices which dont even like we are talking through a walkie talkie.

Well yeah that's the problem now I am facing. I can remake the voices too but I don't think it will be good as the original ones

Well its possible tbh :-\ What you need is a very good orator who can pronounce the language very good. And those radio effects and all are possible through sound editors and there's even tutorials for that.

But yeah but where can I find a good orator lol. I am asian and my friends are mostly asian too. Besides , even if I remake the sounds as well , shouldnt it be copyrighted due to the content ?
