Forgive me if there has been something on this. I searched and found nothing. I know we've had posts about blatant copying of games before but I've not seen one this interesting.

Anyway I was looking on the Windows 8 marketplace tonight and found this gem as one of it's new releases.

Now I'm no expert but doesn't anything posted in Microsoft's marketplace have to be approved? Couldn't this not only get the games creator in trouble but Microsoft too? I'd think the name alone could cause some trouble.

*Edit*

Also here are the reviews for your pleasure. It's apparently buggy as hell too.

It's not just a Zelda game, it's a role playing game game.

Well, Zelda is a name, it's not copyrighted. The art style is not even equal to Zelda games.

But Ninty will pull it down anyway.

Love how the screenshot caption simply says "RPG Game"

And then the description refers to it as a "role playing game game" lol.

Say goodbye to your company, Microsoft. Nintendo's legal team is about to tear you to pieces.

No.

how is someone at Microsoft supposed to know if some 3rd party developer or publisher licensed IP from some other company?

if it's not licensed, Nintendo can send a DMCA takedown request.

Oh I don't know. Read the description they supplied Microsoft maybe? I do understand what you're saying though.

"Indie" is not a label that allows people to rip other people's trademarks and works.

Its sad some people just seem to forget that.
