I am planning on making a mini-fan game (as a personal project) that takes place on Cera during the PACT occupation. I am more or less an amateur writer, artist, and programmer but have been a fan of the Sunrider games for years.
1) Am I allowed to do this as long as I do not profit from this project? I am taking the Sunrider story and emulating the artstyle, so it would be non-profit fanfiction and fanart.
2) Does anybody have the sprite of the Ceran Marines that appear throughout Liberation Day? I have tried looking through my game files, but oddly couldn't find it. The sprite would be a key reference image in creating characters.
This is my first official post on the forum and I'm thankful if you took the time to read it.

As long as you are not selling it or re-distributing a modified version of a full game (bypassing the original) we'll look the other way when it comes to fan projects. Also if this project would put actual assets from our games in then these would need to be credited to us as we would still be the author of them even if used in another scenario (so say if the Marine was used and was our original then it would need to be credited).
Best of luck with your project.
