comment Does it require any license to use soccer players and teams names in a paid or free game?
I'd just like to add that whether or not you are making a profit DOES actually affect whether or not something is fair use (see: copyright.gov/fls/fl102.html) However, it doesn't automatically mean something is fair use, in I agree in this case it would likely not be fair use. (Always best to ask a lawyer though)

comment Is it sound to use javascript for cross platform game scripting instead of lua? I might need web clients for my game
Yeah, that is certainly possible, but it does still depend on which engines you'll be using. One thing you could do, though, is write a sort of framework on top of the engines such that the client code of the framework (your core game script) will be able to use the framework on top of each engine in the same way without caring what engine it is on top of.

Yeah, I think it's definitely important to stress that you don't suddenly one day wake up and learn design. It's something you learn through experience.

Hah, that was my answer. Maybe I didn't word it quite right in the answer.

The answer still applies. The first thing you have to do is decide what you are trying to present. Why X and not Y is because X is better at presenting Z. You have to decide what Z is, then you can learn why X fits better than Y. You are asking us about deciding individual parts. You can't decide individual parts until you've decided the whole.

comment Must know legal issues when releasing a game?
Now, I've been thinking about some similar issues myself, and if you are in the US, it might be worth it to find a local Small Business Development Center or Small Business Administration office. I believe their job is basically to help individuals and small businesses figure out things like taxes and business laws. I haven't actually gone myself yet, though, so I am not sure.
