Hey I just really wanted to see how making a game would go and was wondering if it is legal to sell my game on something like Steam or do I have to get permission from someone?

basically with the free edition you should not be making money with construct. With the personal you are allowed up to 5000 dollars made before you have to upgrade to a business license

Here the info from the licensing page



1. Free Edition

The Free Edition is permitted for use by anyone for non commercial use. Commercial use counts as but is not limited to: use within any business (other than limited testing for suitability), generating advertising revenue, selling or licensing generated content or intention or capability to generate revenue.
2. Personal Edition

Personal Edition Licenses are permitted for use by one named individual. No one else apart from this named individual is permitted to make use of the license. Personal Edition Licenses are strictly prohibited for use within business organisations (these organisations must use Business Edition Licenses) except in the instance of Startup Businesses (refer to b.4 for more information).

The license is non transferable in any way, including but not limited to: resale, transfer of license/rights, lending.

The individual is permitted to make up to $5,000 USD lifetime revenue (or equivalent in other currencies/payments/benefits) from their creations. This includes but is not limited to revenue generated through advertisments, in app purchases, sale of content, licensing of content, contract work.

If you generate more than the above stated revenue you must ugprade your Personal Edition License into a Business Edition license within 14 days regardless of if you intend to continue use of your license or not.
3. Business Edition

Business Edition licenses are permitted for use by anyone. They have no limits on revenue generation.

Business purchasing these licenses can either:

Issue the license to a named employee. This employee is permitted to install and use the license on any machine for activities relating to the Business who purchased the license. No one else in the business is permitted to make use of this license in any capacity.
To a single machine. The license may be installed on a maximum of one machine at any one time, for use by only one concurrent user.

If the license is issued to a named employee and that employee is no longer under employment by the business, the license is no longer valid for use. You are allowed a reissue of the license, to do this please email a copy of the license to Scirra. We will then revoke the Business License and issue you with a new Business License.
