Hello! :kaohi:

So, I'm about to post my game in the "Game In Development" so that I can get feedback and motivations to keep going (currently in Moderated stage). But now that I think about it, would I risk from people plagiarizing ideas and/or stealing art? And if those incident do happen, what should I do? :kaodes:

Thank you
- smhaaokir

A lot of people post in the Games in Development section. While there is a *possibility* of people taking ideas from your game, I don't think anyone will steal your custom art (characters, battlebacks, cgs etc..) But things like tilesets might be taken. There's nothing to do about this. You can encrypt your game but that's all you can do. If people want to steal assets, they will do so no matter what measures you take. If you see anyone making a game very similar to you to the point that it's suspicious, contact a moderator. However, I don't think anyone in this forum would do such a thing.

Ideas are cheap. Everyone could get the idea from basically anywhere. Ideas have no value. Implementation and execution that has the value. You could claim if someone is plagiarizing if you have a proven concept of your idea than just "hey, I have this idea a long time ago, you're stealing!".

Doing RPG Maker News for 24th October 2021

So got my hearing tested to see if it was the cause of my mishearing what people say. Test showed no problems but talked with the doctor about anxiety and ADHD causing hearing issues and she agreed and also added that some people hear things differently. With my anxiety cause I am in fight or flight I pay attention to all the sounds in the area so body knows when react. Can't pay attention to one source.
