Development ceased December 1, 2015, with the website being completely shut down in the process (including removing download links). The official reason originally given was that the development team felt their work was complete and they wanted to pursue original ventures, but [[https://www.facebook.com/Mewtwo2000/posts/724185831014518?_rdr=p a team member later explained]] that it was a preemptive measure for fear of the potential legal consequences. They sought counsel after discovering a potential issue and were told that the mod's scope gave Creator/{{Nintendo}} grounds to sue instead of just sending a Cease and Desist if they continued.

Project M is no more.
''[[http://projectmgame.com/en/ Project M]]'' is a mod of the popular Nintendo [[MascotFighter Mascot]] and [[PlatformFighter Platform]] Fighter ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros Brawl]]'', inspired by [[TournamentPlay competitive-style]] ''Super Smash Bros. Melee'' and designed to add rich, fast-paced, and technical gameplay to a well-balanced cast of characters. It was created by a group of tournament-style ''Smash Bros.'' enthusiasts known as the ''Project M'' Development Team (PMDT) (previously known as the Project M Back Room, PMBR), some of whom were involved in ''Brawl+'', the previous attempt to modify ''Brawl'' into a better-balanced and competitively-oriented game. Importantly, it isn't just a copy of ''Melee''; the goal is to tweak all 39 characters in ''Brawl'''s roster (and Melee fan favorites Roy and Mewtwo) to be viable yet fair fighters against the likes of the best characters ''Melee'' has to offer. Ultimately, the project is meant to create the ideal version of ''Super Smash Bros.'': one that is well-balanced, is energetic, and supports a dynamic balance between offensive and defensive playstyles, yet overall slightly favors offense. Simply put, it's a fan-made sequel/remake/improvement/conceptual expansion of ''Melee''.
