Ghosts 'N Goblins: Demon World was a new game up on Kickstarter looking for funding. Its developers said that they had "discussed" working with Capcom on securing the classic series' licensing. Capcom says nope, never happened, and has instead set the lawyers on them.

The game's Kickstarter page has been removed and its campaign shut down, the Japanese publisher's US arm saying in its takedown notice that "The project admits it will need Capcom's permission to proceed and has not received one. To its knowledge, Capcom has not been contacted by the project."

Ouch.

You don't own the IP! You can't just take it and do what you want with it! What the hell is wrong with these people? They don't even have an understanding of IP ownership and they want the internet to throw money at them? Are they hopefully optimistic or just plain retarded?
