Question About Game Licenses

Recommended Posts

How hard is it to gain a license for a game you want to make? If I wanted to base my game idea around the characters in an Anime is this something that will take time to do? Or will this really count on the quality of my game design?

Unless you''ve got the full financial might of a big (I mean **BIG**) corporation behind you, just forget about licensing concepts. You can''t afford it, period.

Think about it. Popular copyrighted characters and concepts practically allow the companies who own them to print their own money. If you wanna buy copyright from them, you''re paying for the whole reason for their success - you''re almost buying the company itself, and it''ll cost you that much.

Besides, it''s a cop out way of doing things. Don''t buy ideas, think of them. If everyone makes the same games with the same characters, the same scenes and the same story, the whole market will become stagnant.
