Using designs from famous characters

Discuss game development design and post your game ideas

Go look at Broforce. They are using more than 12 famous characters. I guess the trick is too not name them accordingly even though there is a resemblance.

@Ldk, thanks for that. Perhaps we give it a different name and some different props to use as defence that it is a new character, while still keeping many characteristics so that people can instantly recognize it.

I've actually finished all my new character designs now. Hehe the Kratos version really came out nice I think.

Ah, man, these are brilliant! I really like the style and idea.
avoiding a name reference is surely the way to go as names are often copyrighted themselves.
Good luck and can't wait to see the final result!

@AeponViroth, thanks for the compliment. Really appreciate it.

Haha ya I forgot to upload the final images I will be using, so here they are.

Haha I know the super mario version has been widely abused, but it was simple and it did fit. I really do love the "Bot of War" Kratos version. This other one I will be using is the "Stig" racing helmet.

I feel that these should put me in a safe zone in terms of lawsuit, what do you guys think?
