    Hello everybody.

    So, as the title says, I would like to create an Easter Egg, in my game, that should work like this: the player is asked to name an artist he likes through the Name Input Processing. If the player gives, as answer, the name of a particular artist, the game reacts by making a comment like "Hey, that's a great artist!".

    What I would like to know is if there could be legal/copyright problems with this.

    Thank you in advance.

    There should be no problem from a legal standpoint, as you're just making a reference to the person in question. Just don't slander their name or praise someone horrible. 

    Edit: i.e; 

    "Yeah, that 'Chris Pratt' is a great actor!" vs "Yeah, that 'Adolph Hitler' is a great artist!"

    No, since it's player input you don't even have to worry that much.  No one expects you to police your users and it'll be private use stuff.  You're good.

    How do you make an easter egg like that, though?
