After seeing the comments on selling an idea to developer for a game, the general concencus is that without a game, or atleast a demo, it’s not going to happen. So…someone (yes, Noctrine, I am looking at you) suggested that it might me an interesting idea to turn it into a “public” project.
A few people have asked if I minded if they turned some of my concepts into models, something I always have agreed on. They tell me that it would be to use as work for their portfolio or for practice. Still waiting on those, but that is another story.
If I do this, set up a group to help starting modelers and programmers practice or get stuff for their portfolio, after everything is said and done, who has ownership of the project. I ask in case we end up with an actual demo and a studio get’s interested. Who do they buy it from?
I have no issue with paying accordingly to all participants, but in the legal aspect, who owns it before a publisher buys it?
