Re: Galaxy graphical style

As far as I understand patents, in this case, only a pipeline, or process can be patented, for example a process to make the tilesets could be patented but if you do create a tileset that are visually similar without that said process it won't get liable. Also if the tileset layout would get patente...

Re: Galaxy graphical style

As long as you don't obviously violate the copyright and trademarks of Keen, I wouldn't worry. If you manage to make a game that's big enough to get legal attention from Microsoft, you've already won the game industry lottery. I did some research on my own as well and seems like the line on what co...

Re: Galaxy graphical style

Thank you so much for your answers. Found online Roobar's "Planet Cloudious" game. It has the same flavour as Commander Keen while it has no hint of the original IP other than feel. My curiosity is, if Roobar would decide to sell the game online(also would happily pay for it :D ), would that conflic...

Galaxy graphical style

Hello fellow Keeners!
I was wondering, if I make and release a game that has the same visual style of the Galaxy episodes, without any relation to the original IP (no title, no cameo, no copied artwork etc), just the pseudo 3D tile set layout, would this strike as a copyright infringement?

Re: Foray in the Forest (development thread)

Thank you so much for the explanation. I guess I have better keywords to search around now thankfully, wow I am already blasted away, this is neat! I know some info about the timeline of the two engines, but that is mostly what is available on the surface on the forums or on youtube, I was oblivious...

Re: Commander Keen: Sunset (K1 mod with new game mechanics)

Re: Commander Keen - the earth explodes mod

Don't know, but I guess I will keep making songs when time is available.
Really had fun doing two songs, then work hit hard.
I think I should post those aswell on YT.

Re: Corrupt A Wish game

Granted. Your landlord is an animal lover. So he allows a dog and a cat from each race, male and female, snakes, tarantulas, every quadruped, reptile or not, every insect. Your house is a zoo and you're too afraid to escape.

I wish I could teleport.

Re: Corrupt A Wish game

Granted. Everyone is highly intellectual, commoners understand everything about mathematics, physics, art, philosophy etc, but the Earth is flat.

I wish I could see in the whole spectrum.

Re: The Ocflore Project

I’m just gonna try to ping some more of the active composers around here: I was summoned, yeah I am in, I will need to play the mod and the levels or some theme to follow, get a feel and inspiration and do the songs. Hi everyone, this thing is basically done! I'm writing this message to ask if anyo...

Their singing is no better than their new look. Let's not forget Keen Dreams' grassy level https://www.commander-keen.com/levelmaps/7/0...
