Once again sorry to have to ask for help.


The game I am making invoked an evil aunt who abused her niece before she is helped by the main cast.

And I am having a adult cupal that are adults who broke up get back together.

Does having those elements as apart of my game mean I am not allowed to use the child generator parts

I'm unclear why you don't think you could use a child sprite just because those elements you mentioned are part of the story. I think the only issue would be if you actually showed child abuse/child neglect because there are international laws that say you cannot show those types of things maybe? I'm not sure.

I just don't know is my problem

I have zero issues with that. For me personally I don't know if my game has any form a char being beaten who is 18. Would that be. Considered brutal violence

Or like I said to people getting back together would that be considered. Adult content.

And if my game has any form of that would that mean I broke the terms even if it did not happen to a child character sprite.

Or does using this rpg pack mean I cannot do it at all with any character in the game.

I don't know, the only thing I can find with a Google search is the AACAP sites that talk about restricting sales to minors based on ratings given to games.

Sigh I am just not sure and that is my problem I want to include kid characters in my game but I am not sure if I am allowed now unless I make it a game with 0 violence and I just don't know what I can do.


Thank you for trying to help me

The only game I can think of, because I've been replaying it, that has kids in the group getting hit by bad guys and beat on by monsters/enemies is Lost Odyssey. It's rated Teen. I'm not sure if that's the same thing as you're describing, but they are clearly child characters participating in the battles.

All those things sound like they should be fine imo.

Iirc adult content is... Intercourse. So couple stuff should be fine as long as it's limited to kissing. And fade to black after some bedroom eyes and "let's go to bed early today" is probably also fine. As long as it's not the child sprites doing it, of course.

And brutal violence is pretty hard to show with sprites. So unless you have a ton of blood, or like, an face image covered in blood and bruises you should be fine i think.

I'm not a legal expert or anything though.

Also I skimmed through the EULA that comes with the dlc on steam real quick, and I can't find anything that bans you from using it with violent or adult stuff.

Why would violence be ok in general if intercourse isn't? People consider both pretty awful things.

I just need conflict and the threat if danger for my story is all.
For me personally it won't happen. But I need to make it where the cast could die I. There eyes it there are not very many stakes for battles

I dunno, that's just how it tends to be in my experience... Like, most games have violence.
Like even games rated E for everyone can have a little "cartoon, fantasy or mild violence" according to the esrb.

You can use RTP resources (which includes the character generator) in any game made with RPG Maker, regardless of the content.

Once again, if you are using other resources, check the terms of use. Some artists will not allow their resources to be used in adult games, or other specific types of games.

I made a game once, for a contest or something where there was violence towards a child for the backstory, that was seen in a vision. But I had the sprites go into a room and then only had the dialogue about it. There were no problems doing that.

sure look at Disney films, other games and stuff, that kind of thing happens all the tim, but off screen, so I don’t know why you couldn’t do it yourself!

persobally I think the real gray area and a quick factor is in how much you actually show. Implied is always better in my opinion.

Do dlc I buy count other resources?

I think it depends on the DLC, if it's purely DEGICA/Kadokawa, probably not. But if there's nothing specific saying that you can't then you probably can.

If there's an EULA that comes with the pack when you buy it, and it mentions the Violent Content Forbidden restriction, then please copy that EULA paragraph here and maybe I can make a better interpretation.

However, my first instinct is that you're good.

I would tend to think that "Violent Content Forbidden" refers to particularly brutal violence. Heavy blood and gore, onscreen killing that involves torture, or similar. Normal RPG violence is alright, even somewhat dark violence. Domestic violence would probably be OK to depict, as long as you don't depict it in a particularly graphic way, sexualize it (for the audience) in any way, or outright condone the domestic violence through your narrative tone.

I have looked through this like 500 times now I don't see it I paid for the steam version that mention no such restrictions
