Selling Build games with 100% custom content?

User is offline   Darkhog 


If, say, I'd make Build game with 100% custom content (sound, music, graphics, levels), am I legally allowed to sell it? To be clear, it would use eDuke only as engine, no content either from shareware or retail version of Duke would be used, nor any content related to an existing IP.

In short "no" if you have no idea about licenses etc.

From the BUILD License:


[3] Distribution of any derivative works MUST be done completely FREE of
charge - no commercial exploitation whatsoever.

[5] The use of the Build Engine for commercial purposes will require an
appropriate license arrangement with me. Contact information is
on my web site.

You would have to negotiate an agreement with Ken. TerminX would likely be the one to talk to.

Note that we won't agree unless your stuff is quality.
