Hey Tasty want to buy the rights to do whatever with this thing I worked years on? Name a price!
I guess it should be possible to somehow procure the rights to Savage if the right sum or trust is placed before the current holders. I guess Savage's name and rights holders should be one of the developers like Maliken?
Thing is, the XR development team with all the different people, with all the different sorts of skills and donations working on XR back in the day could not get this to work. Maybe if someone close to one of the developers could convince it's holders to have Savage published on Steam, under some basic supervision from a non-profit organisation (if you would want to found one of those), maybe you could get a steady influx of people for a short time and even convince them to stay!
We all hoped Savage Ressurection could do this when it came out, but it was never opened for modding unfortunately
Maybe there are still enough people around with the skills to make such a thing happen! We'll need someone with knowledge about both US and EU copyright law, and the time and willingness to work on such a case!
