Fans attempting to remake the original 1987 MSX Metal Gear game on PC have been given the blessings of Konami. In a post on their webpage, the group noted Konami said that the remake could go ahead “as long as (they) did not abuse copyright issues”. This means no profiting, as the team understands it.
The game itself is intended to be remade as a mod using Valve’s Alien Swarm game, to replicate the top-down effect of the original Metal Gear. Checking out their work so far, they’ve already made some great progress, with work-in-progress screenshots of levels, weapons and models showing promise.
There is also a follow-up email from Konami, which says, “If the project goes well, and there will be public interest in it, Konami will surely (sic) get to know this and consider further steps accordingly.”
The team is now looking for more people to come on board and help. You can check out the requirements over here.
