Promising Star Wars: KOTOR Fan-Made Reboot Gets Shuttered by Lucasfilm

Lucasfilm has shut down Knights of the Old Republic: Apeiron, a fan-made reboot of BioWare’s classic Star Wars RPG. Naturally, the complaint stems from the unlicensed use of intellectual property: being the "exclusive owner of all intellectual property rights in and to the Star Wars major motion pictures, games and any other Star Wars content," Lucasfilm fears that Apeiron would be confused as an official, affiliated product.

The Apeiron website describes it as "a remake and remastering of the original game with added content, new worlds, missions, HUD, inventory, items, and companions," created by "a group of dedicated programmers, artists, voice actors, world builders, and writers that have all come together to breathe life back into a wonderful game."
