Legal making a fan-game?

Hello everyone!

I dont really know where I should ask this question, but I joined here and thought I would give it a try.

We are two indie game devs that always wanted to make a fan game set in the Star Wars universe, but we dont know if it is legal to do so. So im just asking around, hoping someone can help

Fan game, non profit, but share it with everyone online.

I believe that as long as you don't gain money from it, and all the assets are not from copyrighted material (e.g: licensed Star Wars games), you'll have no problem whatsoever.

What kind of game? Role Playing Game? Card Game? Video Game?

Technically, it's against the law (service agreement) to mod computer games.

"Star Wars" is trademarked, so anything distributed with the "Star Wars" title, theme, music, etc. is all against the law; without express permission from the owner of the trademark.
