General / 2000AD fanwork legality?
« on: 11 June, 2018, 06:32:16 pm »
Hello all! I'm just wondering what Rebellion/2000AD's policy on fan material is. I understand the Strontium Dog fan film and Judge Minty were allowed to go ahead obviously, and the Dogbreath and Zarjaz fanzines exist, but would that be the case for fan games?

I'm playing with the idea of making a 2000AD parody dating sim game in Ren'Py, as a bit of a silly passion project to keep me occupied over the summer. Obviously not-for-profit at all, and I'd be using entirely original art, so I don't see how it would be any different from fanfiction with pictures basically. I've got some material down and some code, but I guess I'd like to be sure before I really get started on this thing.

I'm doing this because I'm a huge long-time fan of the comics, and I bet a ton of people would probably love to go on an extremely canon-noncompliant date with Anderson or Johnny lmao. It's been a huge part of my life in the last few years, and it's honestly saved my life as well, so I thought this would be a really fun way to be able to give back to the community. Just thought I'd just check first if there's something obvious I'm missing since this is probably a little less likely to be accepted than a straight adaption of the canon material, so to speak - not that I'm officially reaching out or explicitly seeking permission from them, because that would probably open up a whole inconvenient can of worms on their part.
