Fan-made games

Fan-made games are video games created by enthusiasts or fans of existing franchises, often using tools and resources available to them. These games are not officially licensed or endorsed by the creators or copyright holders of the original franchises. Fan-made games can take various forms, including remakes, sequels, prequels, spin-offs, or entirely new creations inspired by existing intellectual properties.

These projects are typically driven by passion and a desire to expand upon or pay homage to beloved franchises. Fan-made games can range widely in scope and quality, from simple modifications or "mods" of existing games to fully-fledged independent releases with original assets and gameplay mechanics.

Fan-made games often operate in legal gray areas due to their use of copyrighted material without permission. As a result, they may be subject to takedown notices or legal action from the original creators or copyright holders.
