Licensing question

Post by Alexander_08 »

Hi there.

I don't know exactly what this form is. Answering the CAPTCHA for registration had me look up the name of the Lumberjack in Hurnscrald. I found out it is Jack.

However, I am a game developer of sorts. I'm working on a multiplayer wizard/creature tower defense game. I was just fooling around with this [viewtopic.php?f=36&t=14884&start=75] tile set, but I think I have a decently plan for actually going through with a build. I was wondering who I would speak to about permissions? Or what sort of License is the artwork in this thread under?

Thank you.

Alex

Says the guy who is always at the crypt :alt-7:

(Sorry, could not resist the joke)

But indeed, the correct would be to open a new topic. Unless it is a discussion about this tileset, which I don't remember if it is present as this or not on the new server.
