Mega Man 8 Bit Deathmatch Released; It's Free

Mega Man 8-Bit Deathmatch, the fan-made Doom mod, at least released on Friday. The FPS, stuffed full of Mega Man characters, weapons and other assorted sprites, is free.

CutmanMike and his team of rippers, spriters and modders spent more than a year building the game. You can see all of their names in that credit sequence above.

See here for a trailer showcasing the game, and check out this list of all the weapons and powerups in it.

    How does this work sit in a legal sense?
    They have "sprite rippers" and trade directly with the Mega Man name - I don't see any endorsements from the franchise holders, so am interested how this works.

      I think the sprites are handmade and using the name is fair use.
