Grids vs. Geometry

If you're aware of the Xbox Live shooter Geometry Wars, you may also be aware of the free (and unofficial) PC clone Grid Wars. The company behind Geometry, Bizarre Creations, persuaded Grid author Mark Incitti to stop distributing his clone earlier this month. Earlier this week, Bizarre issued a letter threatening to enforce copyright against anyone else plagiarizing their title. Incitti has since told GamesIndustry that proposed concessions to Bizarre were rejected, among them giving credit to the company, changing Grid Wars' name and gameplay, or even including in-game links and disclaimers. Incitti maintains that both Grid and Geometry are really derivative of earlier games - likely meaning Asteroids and Robotron. Neither Bizarre nor Microsoft have filed lawsuits.
