Well guys,
Most of you have probably read Gamepro's edition of the latest DBZ game for PS2 and the Xbox. Most Dragon Ball Z fans probably have been follwoing the game's development. Well, here I am to blow the lid off. It all started November 2000. A friend of mine and I were designing a DragonBall Z game for fun as most DBZ Fans do. Then we get the wild idea to try and get it published. So we sent it to funimation(without thinking about copywrights and that sort of thing). One month later the **** company announces a DBZ game is in production. Of course we got steamed up about it and sent them nasty letters which recieved no response. Being short on money we couldn't hire a lawyer. Anyways, through all this we had hoped it was a coincidence until the latest issue of Gamepro talking about the game. It is the SAME exact description that our game was going to be. Well anyways, to get to the point, here is a copy of our preliminary outline(not the whole thing, this was our 3rd draft and you will only be seeing part of it) so knock yourself out DBZ fans. Here it is.
Sincerely,
Jacob
NOTE:I have edited out our names for the sake of privacy and is in outline form, when I tried to Copy and Paste it the documnent didnt conform well to the forum so sorry about that.

Thats pretty good bro. It sucks that big companys do that but thats how they reep the profits. It would not have been your idea anyway because Funmation or whoever the company that made DBZ ownes the rights to movies, apparial, games, etc..If u wrot a game based on Star Wars do u think that u should make that money? It wasnt your idea to begin with so try to come up with somethng origional and then u can be upset if someone else steals your idea. But what about King KAI? Y does your pride level have to be down to reach SSJ? Seems to me that they just turn SSJ at will now so y should it be diffrent in the game? As long as they make it an Action/RPG it should be killer, cant wait till it comes out:cool:
