Hi all,

I have a legal question. We are a small team of independent developers just beginning work on a PC game title that may one day end up as a commercial project. I expect the game will eventually have a PEGI rating of 18 due to mature content. The trouble is, one of our developers is 16. At this stage, I assume legal responsibility falls on the parents, but should we form a company or release commercially, what then? However, it may be some years before the project reaches that stage.

Has someone else faced a similar situation and could give some advice?
