How about "Machines: Rewired" or something of the like? I find it has a nice ring to it.

well, as far as I understand it. Acclaim doesn't exist anymore. What is now Acclaim Games bought the name but that's just the name. Throwback bought some of the titles but I don't think Machines was one of them. So who would actually hassle us about it?

I agree - don't worry about it.

Listen, if you guys manage to put together what will essentially be a an Ogre mod that happens to look a little bit like Machines and is named "Machines 2 : Gaydar on Full" (I love that name btw - not exactly PC though!) or something similar what are you actually going to do with it?
I suspect it will essentially be free - I doubt there would be much market for it - so the worst you are going to have to deal with is a "cease and desist".

If that ever comes up (which I sincerley doubt) you just rebrand then. Spending lots of time and effort up front worrying about this stuff will burn valuable time. If you don't get moving then you'll never actually get there.
Ask me anything about Machines and I'll try to answer! I don't have the source code anymore. No idea what happened to it...

I was thinking on a re-make myself before I found this site. I was going to call it Machinery.

that way you get a bit of the machines affilliation without the lawsuit of useing Machines

Rampaging Robots?

Persnickety Parrots! Nair Do Well Norwegians! Crazy Campers!

Rampaging Robots is worse than REBOOTED.

Eeerr... Ok, I know this title is worse than 'ReBooted', but I've been stuck with this one in my head for a while and wanted to finally release it: 'Machines: Unleashed'... But I suppose that title is probably better on an expansion of the game or something... :-P
The scout is the best unit around!!!!... I'm pathetic...
