[quote=“sanity.exe, post:20, topic:996”]they killed project M?
Damn, Nintendo is going mad with the DCMAs recently; that was a large and long running mod if I’m not mistaken.[/quote]
Project M ceased development because the founding members went on to create a new company called Wavedash games. They’re currently designing a platform fighter and they didn’t want to be bogged down by any potential legal issues related to their association with PM. As far as we know, Nintendo never issued a DCMA over PM, but the PM dev team never really disclosed that info. Even popular smash streamer VGBC said they stopped streaming PM due to potential legal issues stunting the growth of their channel, but Nintendo had no involvement in their decision.
The issue is that Nintendo creates the constant looming fear of a lawsuit because they’ve done it before and could very well do it again. Modders feel that pressure and back down.
