I would like to recreate/revamp a game called [link=http://www.theblackforge.net/]AlterEgo[/link]
that was made by Dan Fabulich. I tried to contact him for his agreement. I don't plan on making an exact copy of the work, firstly because the environment I'm working in is different and the result is going to have a different interface, and secondly because I'm removing some features and adding a couple new ones. However, since I have failed to contact Mr. Fabulich, I was wondering what copyright rules apply. Will I have to rephrase all of his text, copy it directly and credit him, or not be able to proceed at all? To what extent do I have to alter the game to make it legal? Also, does the fact that I am using some of the suggestions from the wishlist of his users come in to play at all? Please give advice!
