If anyone has any ideas on how to distribute it (it's a romhack of a different game, for the record) without catching S-E's attention, I'd be interested to hear suggestions.
If it's just a ROM hack then why not do it here? There are thousands of ROM hacks, why would they care? They only care if something gets mainstream attention and will then affect their bottom line. So few people come here that it won't matter.
If you're that bothered, though, there's always 4chan, everyone's anonymous there...
EDIT: regarding companies closing down projects, I never understand why people making these things don't just use original ideas that aren't trademarked or copyrighted. So you make Metroid 2, but it's not Samus Aran, it's a guy called, I dunno, Alan Shamus. And he's fighting Bloborgs instead of Metroids. See? Ain't nobody gonna cease and desist that shit.
