What's the best game engine to use for producing footage that's truly royalty-free?

I want to include some fabricated video game footage into a commercial video piece. I don't have the time or the resources to have professional 3D animation done, so I've decided to use a machinima approach towards animation. My main concern, though, is copyright issues -- what's the best game engine to use for producing footage that's truly royalty-free? [more inside]

name that SNES game

I am trying to remember the of a SNES game I used to play that had been redone and was made available for PC. There was a post about it on me-fi about a year ago but I can't find it. The premise was that your character was transproted to an alien word and you have to escape their prison and find out how to get home. I have searched the following tags on me-fi: alien, game, games, videogames, and Nintendo. I remember the post mentioning that the creator was French so I even searched that and got nothing. I have searched other places with no luck. All I need is the name of the game and I will be set.
