Hello everyone :)

I have a rather important question that i hope somebody can help me with.

I'm a masters student and my thesis is related to Gamification. I want to create a game concept by using RPG maker, the game will not be playable i just want to create the concept then insert screenshots of the game in the paper.

My question is would it be ok if used RPG maker and other assets for my thesis ? of course i will credit RPG maker and any user who's assets i have used.

Also i'm sorry if this is the wrong forum to post this.

Thank you very much in advance

This is potentially something of a grey area.

For RPG Maker and RTP assets, let the admins answer that... For other people's assets you also have to ask the specific creators if they allow it, on top of whatever the admin's will say.

As long as it is credited, this should not be an issue.

UPDATE:
Thought i would post a small update just in case, even thought i have gotten the permission here and on twitter from the official RPG maker account.

I have mentioned that the game will not be playable but now the game has to be playable for gamification research purposes in order for it to count as a thesis level. I of course will reference everything i have used in my thesis. :)

I've noticed that more videos on YouTube have these segmented bookmark things in the videos themselves. It's nice being able to jump to parts of a video you want, and to have them all clearly labelled.
Why you do this? Now I have to buy the new RPG Maker xD
I've always dreaded planning for my games so I just didn't plan at all. That... didn't work out after all. :kaosigh:
Turns out it can be kind of fun if you keep the scope small and don't take it way too seriously.
well... for the first time in months... I feel like my game is headed towards something again. I finally have it where I won't be drawing battle assets for the rest of the year...
