Hi:

The art for Bugatron Worlds was created for us by Flipside Games. Is the planet similar to someone else's? If it is, we certainly had no knowledge of it and will immediately change it. Can someone paste a link?

Thanks!

Never mind, I found it! It will be removed from the game this week, ugh

It's strange too- it had occurred to me when I received the planet that it was a bit different than the rest of the art they supplied. Now I know why.

Mr. Boeh -

The planet your artwork contains is from the Electronic Arts game, "Little Big Adventure," also known as "Relentless" in North America.

As this hi-resolution in-game screenshot shows, the planet is used in the game.



You can find other images that contain this planet picture here

These are from the MBN's gallery, courtesy of site admin El Muerte.

Best Wishes,
Double-J

Somebody should tell them it isn't nice to use copyrighted artwork.

Luckily, enought people clicked on the link that it showed up in my website stats, so I investigated.

I have replaced the planet, now I just have to go back and correct the logos, etc:

Thanks for posting about it, I never would have known...

Hehe, thanks That planet was already in the game, so I just had to incorporate it into the logo, and a few other places as well... I am pretty angry, but I want to get the whole story from the artists before I flip out on them....

well it isn't completely impossible that they'd figure a blue ocean planet with white mountainrange going through the middle.


but yeah....it's so alike

Yeah, thanks.
It didn't really bother me much, the image of twinsun, i just found it a little surprising. It's a good game though, bugatron worlds. And i'm not sure if there's a forum on your site or something, but can you add an option to change the explosions and sounds to how they were in the original game? it was much cooler.
