Post » Sun Jun 08, 2014 3:33 am

"Space Blaster" is an template provided in Construct 2 , I want to ask whether any of the following statements below I can do.

(Redestributing means I want to sell the game for some amount)

1. Can I redestribute the game with my name in original form.

2. Can I redestribute the game with my name with Scirra credits in original form.

3. Can I redestribute the game with my name with some editing.

4. Can I redestribute the game with my name and Scirra credits with some editing.

Why would you possibly want to sell a game that is available for free with Construct 2? No, I do not believe this can be allowed, since users will think it's a scam if they had to pay for something they could have got for free somewhere else.

@Ashesh - you are not allowed. In fact you are not allowed to sell any unmodified content that comes with Construct 2 for free.

@Ashley Am i also not allowed to sell "Space Blaster" By changing backgrounds and sprites (so users will not know that it from Construct 2 and its free as you don't provide extra images that i'll use)

What you are asking is comparable to buying a game like COD, GoW or any game for that matter and asking the developers if it's OK to change the graphics and sell it as your own work.

What do you think the answer would be to that?
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

... Also, why not just spend the day or two that it would take to make your own Space Blaster-style game, then sell it as your own work because it actually *is* your own work?
