Jezzball clone

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I've made a Jezzball/ Barrack like game for practice. I wasn't planning on publishing it, but I think that it's pretty playable and interesting, however I'm concerned about legal issues for publishing a clone. Does anybody know is Jezzball copyright protected? How can I find out do I need to pay for the licence or can I just publish it?

I don't want to publish it with the same name and my game has a lot of different/new features, but essentialy it is a Jezzball clone...

How different must my game be in order to be original?

 

Tnx guys

Here are more informations about Jezzball clones, it seems, that you are not the first one.

 

Eventually no-one can say it for sure, but cloning is still quite popular (how many MMORPGs play like WoW with an other skin or compare lot of RTS games to Warcraft) and it is always the question if you got inspired by an other game or do a 1:1 clone, eventually it depends on the IP owner and how much your game resembles the original game.

1. Yes. You should be.

2. It's copyrighted.

3. Contact the original publisher.

4. Create an original name, and do not use any of the original's graphics or audio.

5. There's no easy answer to that easy question. Read FAQ 61.
