    So to begin, I'm a lackluster pixel artist working on a game- more specifically, a demo- that I've dreamt of for 2+ years. Seeing as I'm having trouble with the maps, is it possible to sell the game- a free demo for now, until I get an artist- using default tilesets, even if they're recolored and/or edited?

    If this isn't possible, what suggestions do you have? If it is, what about previous versions?

    As long as you own a legitimate licence to the engine in which the tiles originally belonged to, yes, but you have to credit Kadokawa somewhere, whether it is in a credits text file or in the end-game credits reel.

    Right. I still have VX Ace and- I believe- 2003, but I'll be sure to do that. Much appreciated!

    Note - if you use custom tilesets that others have created, make sure they allow for editing. I know that some people don't, because edits usually tend to look worse than the original, and it impacts the artist's reputation.

    You also don't NEED to get tiles created. It's perfectly fine to sell the game using just RTP tiles.
