Question about selling games

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Dec 17, 2012 7:20 am

Hello

I need to ask something about the selling part.
I have one client who is interested to commission me to make a game for him wich he will basicaly then own for own webpage and maybe commercial purposes.
So he basicaly gets all the files of the made game.

Can I do this with a personal license?

"The Personal license
All the free edition limits are removed with a Personal license. However, the rules for commercial use are different for individuals and organisations.

Individuals may use a standard license for commercial purposes up to a revenue limit of $5000. Once revenues associated with creations made with Construct 2 exceed $5000 (including associated advertising/promotion) a business license must be purchased. However, no business license is necessary before that point.

Not-for-profit organisations like schools, libraries and universities may use personal licenses to remove the free edition limits. Bulk discounts are available.

Commercial organisations cannot purchase standard licenses: they must purchase business licenses."

I'm pretty sure you can.

Iam aware of the $5000 limit, wich is why I ask if it counts when the sold game migh be used by its new owner for posible commecrial uses and still effects my license?
Or should I just make an agreement with him to have the game for personal use for example?

If you have a personal edition license, you can make games for other people if they commission you to do so. The amount they pay you goes towards your $5k limit.

The client who purchased the game from you can do with it as they wish.

Feel free to email licensehelp@scirra.com for answers to specific questions, we're always happy to clarify.Tom2012-12-17 13:03:45

Miu3 I have a question for you.

The game commisions that you are getting. Does that also include the you doing the art assets? I would go commision also, but I can't really draw or do art assets in a professional manner.

As far it seems, Ill be doing the graphics aswell. Originaly I made a animated clip for him based on his book and now he asks me to do also a platformer type of game for it. If you are looking for clients to do commission for them, you can try elance. It is a really neat place :D
Some project require just the game making while the client provides the graphic made by other artist.
