    That's entierly up to you. As long as you have the names of the people that wants credits for their work, then you should be fine.

    No, you shouldn't list it like that. You don't put a copyright on stuff that isn't yours. The way you have it now, it looks like Enterbrain made your game.


    You just list them as Enterbrain in the credits. That's all.


    Is FlixPress your company? If not, you should not have their copyright in there either.

    Thank you. My mistake.

    So.....at the end of the credits I just put:

    Enterbrain by itself? It does not seem right

    How do I correctly format it?

    For example,

    Gamespy requires this at the end of credits.

    (Halo PC version has this at the end of it's credit roll. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=YIaR37MzmvY#t=317)

    Look at this


    There is nothing in the EULA at all about crediting Enterbrain in any game you make. So, legally, you don't even have to do it.


    The company's actual name is Enterbrain, Inc.


    It would be enough to add that to your credits list. If you wanted to add more, make it say "Uses RPG Maker VX Ace, by Enterbrain Inc." or something like that (making it clear that the engine is by Enterbrain, not the game itself).

    Then maybe:


    Enterbrain (for RPG Maker and it's RTP)

    I would probably roll with

    - game name - Created by - your name -

    - people who helped you if applicable -

    - game name - Created using RPG Maker VX Ace by Enterbrain Inc.

    and even if its not stated in the terms/contract/agreement it is usually good form to credit all where appropriate

    After you listed credits for:

    • Game Design
    • Artwork
    • Sound
    • Testers 
    • Special Thanks
    • etc
    I would include software acknowledgement credits in the same format found in the "about" section in under "Help" in the editor.
