Comparing your games to other games looks cheap anyways.

"Our game''s awesome, its Half-Life but BETTER!"

If you do, make attribution. Like this: A mixture of soandsogame 1 and soandsogame 2

CUT TO

Bottom of page

Soandsogame is the licensed trademark of soandsogamesco copyright 200X (usually taken right off the box) and same for the other.

I think it''s kind of a cop-out saying "our game is like xyz and abc". Your game should be good on it''s own merits, not on other games'' merits. If you need to describe how your game plays, talk in genres, not specific examples of games from a specific genre.

If I had my way, I''d have all of you shot!
