Installation 01, a fan-made Halo project, has received the green light from Halo developer 343 Industries. In a new blog post, the team behind Installation 01 explains that it has been in contact with 343 Industries, and the company has provided its legal blessing — with the requisite caveats (via Neowin).
The Installation 01 team explains:
That non-commercial part is the important part; the Installation 01 team states it not only can't sell its game or Halo merchandise, but it also can't ever accept donations. The team is also quick to point out that, while it has received assurance that it isn't in any potential legal trouble (so long as it follows the rules), this isn't meant to be interpreted as a blessing for every Halo project out there.
Installation 01 is currently still under development for Windows, Mac, and Linux using the Unity 5 engine. You can follow along with the game's development at the official website.
