Submission + - PC game plagiarizes "Elder Scrolls: Oblivion&#

voidphoenix writes: Albert Einstein once said: "The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources." In the case of three UK game developers, the hiding part was apparently overlooked. They are now being accused of ripping off content from "Elder Scrolls: Oblivion" and other titles.

In an interview, former pub landlord Laurence Francis said: "Between the three of us we researched, wrote, designed, animated, scripted and developed the whole game from home." Have a look at some screenshots demonstrating their thorough "research." Here are some more.

As my friend woerlan suggested, "We HAVE to download a pirate copy of this game as soon as it comes out. It'll be pulled off the shelves. That means that it will become an online torrent only CULT CLASSIC." Question is, would you actually play it?
