Silly Question About Liscencing

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Fri Jul 12, 2013 2:38 am

I'm not completely sure if this is the right place, but it seemed to fit the most out of the other areas. Anyways, with the Free version you can't use your game commercially. Would you be allowed to do a kickstarter for your game and then if it succeeds, upgrade your version afterwards? Or do you have to upgrade first before doing anything money related?

For Kickstarter you are asking for funding for an idea. You aren't actually profiting off of something you made in Construct 2 if it succeeds.
So no, you don't have to buy the license to run a Kickstarter to make and sell a Construct 2 game.

If you simply make a kickstarter to raise the funds to purchase a Construct 2 license, then I don't think there would be any issues. Best to ask @Ashley to be sure.

Well it wouldn't just be for the sake of the licence, and I would be using a short demo of the game which I would have made using the free version.

Send a mail to [email protected] stating your case to make sure.
That's the better way to get the right answer coming directly from Scirra and making sure you're in the limits of the license.
