SOFTWARE LICENSING AGREEMENT FOR PAWBYTE
Last updated: October 04, 2017 16:52 CST.
Your Game(s) and Creation(s)
Games and other creations made with Game Pencil engine are free to distribute by whatever means you want. The same license for the Editor and Engine does not apply to its creations. This means that you own the copyright for whatever you develop using Game Pencil Engine. No royalties or payments are given to PawByte or it its contributors in exchange for your product’s sales. This includes binaries, html5 exports and whatever you can export using Game Pencil.
Note however that the Game Pencil Engine binary that you would distribute with your game is a copy of the “Software” as defined in the license, and you are therefore required to include the copyright notice and license statement somewhere in your documentation.
PawByte and other Game Pencil Engine developers will be most happy if you would link to this page ( http://gamepencil.pawbyte.com/license/ ) in your game documentation or credits would be an acceptable way to satisfy the license terms.
The Editor & Engine
This license grants users a number of freedoms:
- You are free to use Game Pencil Engine, for any purpose
- You can study how Game Pencil Engine works and change it
- You can distribute unmodified and changed versions of Game Pencil Engine, even commercially and under a different license (including proprietary)
The only restriction to that third freedom is that you need to distribute the copyright notice and license statement of Game Pencil Engine whenever you redistribute it. So your derivative product may have a different license, but should still state in its documentation that it derives from the MIT licensed Game Pencil Engine (see below).
