PiD port to alephone
Posted By: W'rkncacnterDate: 1/14/19 7:28 p.m.

Let's say for the sake of argument that I have a fully featured, fully complete port of Pathways Into Darkness to Aleph One.

If this existed, it wouldn't use any of the original files directly, but it re-uses the same artwork, sounds, dialog, and maps. I don't think PiD is technically abandonware, so I'm wondering what would happen if I were to make something like this publicly available. I wouldn't want lawyers from Bungie to get angry with me.

I'm assuming this is not a big deal since:
* Bungie doesn't still sell PiD, and hasn't in ages.
* Other marathon projects already use shapes/sounds from PiD, and it has never been a problem.
* The game is available on macintosh garden and has been for ages, and Bungie has never had it removed.

But I figured I'd check to see what other people thought about this, in case there's any major concern I'm overlooking.

I mostly did this for fun and to see if I could, but it would be nice to be able to make it available to other people, since it would allow people without macs to play the game.
