Chao mobile game?

Post by Chacrons trainer » Mon Jan 15, 2018 6:43 am

Do you think there will ever be a mobile app with chao?

I think Sega themselves have missed a trick here.

I would be happy to pay decent money to download that and with possible in-app purchases for rare eggs etc... too. :surprise:

I know a fan game can't be created on mobile, due to copyright or am I wrong on this?!

If Sega were to make new Chao Gardens, I'd agree a stand-alone Chao Raising game for Android and iOS would make a lot of sense in the current market.

As for fangames, technically, all fangames could be considered as infringing on copyright, but since it is up to the copyright holder to prosecute violations, how high profile a fangame can get without being shutdown largely depends on the copyright holder. That said, Sega has a history of being very lenient towards hackers and fangames, so I'd rate the risk of getting a Cease and Desist letter for a Chao fangame as very low(and only the most assholish companies take things to court without a C&D letter and few will continue work after recieving one). Whether you could get a Chao Fangame into the AppStore or on Google Play is a different story, but I doubt Sega would harass someone for making one for mobile OSes unless they were trying to sell it.
Just so you know, I am blind.

Those who approach life like a child playing a game, moving and pushing pieces, possess the power of kings.

Sega should take it on themselves and see the money role in, but they would need to advertise and market it right to reach an audience such as ourselves here on the forum, for it to be worth their while.

There aren't any mobile Chao games but you can play both Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 if you get Reicast off of Google Play. I have both games on my Android and I love it personally.

I'm surprised they haven't already to be honest. A cheap chao mobile game beyond the dumb one you see in Jump/Dash (I forget which one had it) would be a great way for SEGA to test the waters and see if people are still interested in chao.

From what I've seen online, Chao are still pretty popular - hell, for a lot of people the Chao Gardens were the main thing they did when playing the Adventure duology or one of the only reasons why they played them.

Maybe the success of Chao Resort Island will have some influence in the future.
