  1. His best chance is probably to mod Ark: Survival Evolved, although that game has been rated 16+ by PEGI so you may want to check it out yourself first.
  2. Thank you both for the great feedback, @JoeJ and @Liacart! It's good to see some of my doubts confirmed and I very much appreciate the suggestions to make it better. I'm going to give these a go over the coming few days. I will also prepare a scene with some of the towers and ships in place I have finished. Thanks again!
  3. Hello everyone, For the past few months I have been working on a tower defense game set in space. The attached screenshot shows the main scene where the action will take place. It features a starscape and a planet in the background, as well as smoke coming from a crater where a meteor hit. Furthermore there are asteroids in the scene which the player will use for resource gathering. I continuously catch myself changing the visual direction and I have come to the conclusion that I simply can't tell what looks good anymore. I am going for a as-low-as-possible-poly art style since I am a programmer by trade and only get around to dabbling in other fields in a few precious hours in the evenings. I would love to hear what others think of the scene in terms of models, colors, lighting, and whatever crosses your mind. Thanks you very much!

    Work For Hire as a non-legal entity

    Hi Tom, thanks for the fast response! I am saying that I am not a registered business and do not have a contract with said artist.
  6. Hello, As many others before me I am trying to develop a marketable game. I have recently gotten to the point where I was confident enough to get an artist on-board which I am paying a one-time fee for the requested assets. I am, at this point, not a legal entity for the simple fact that if this endeavour goes belly-up, I won't have a load of paper and registration fees to deal with. Would any assets created by the artist still be classified as "work made for hire" thus me being the legal author? What if this game does get released and the original author decides to charge me royalties? I am from the Netherlands, if legislation here is much different from the US Copyright Act. Thanks for you input!
