Hey guys! :)

So i have been thinking about making a game for ages now and i have finally come up with my own idea. However this idea does have some similar (not very) elements to the well known game minecraft. The only things that are the same is that you can dig and when it becomes night, zombies come out and try to kill you.

Is it illegal for me to create a game like this which has similar features and make money out of it?

Thanks in advance :)

It is not illegal to do this, there is no copyright on ideas.
As long as you're not using any of the original assets from Minecraft then it's fine =)

OK Thankyou! :) Btw i think your game "Fred" is a great game! If you developed it for the iphone or android i think it would become a HUGE hit! :)

Haha, thanks, it is the ultimate goal. Although trying to get it to work and look nice on phone is going to be a challenge!
