    Sounds awesome, and will give the necessary motivation for a mate and I to actually do something more than get confused at blueprints and run the assorted starter content with a falsified sense of accomplishment.

    However

    Reading the terms of battle it states that all submissions must be entirely original works or authorship. Does this mean that all assets etc must be self made/purchased, and that we cannot by definition use the unreal example assets/content in our submission ? I'm not referring to just grabbing ut and then re skinning the menu but using the buggy from the dirt racing game or some rock formations... Are we officially ok to use elements from the assorted assets available for free through the asset store, and is the original submission just the term for the product as a whole, similar to how "I'll be missing you" is not the same song as "Every breath you take", or "Gangstas Paradise" and "Pasttime paradise" are also different.

    Just want to know if we're allowed to use the free assets in our game or does it ALL have to be original.

    Thanks,

    Dave.

        Submission from any source, nor may the Submission include third-party copyrighted material or artwork, without the copyright holder’s permission.

        Also looking at previous jams you can see the use of stock assets.

            Am I reading that wrong or the "without etc" applies to all of it. I'd assumed that the without perms applied from the nor, altho I was always taught that a line between commas should be able to be removed and keep the statement correct. In which case I'm worried about nothing. Not a fan of legaleze.

            But until a moderator says otherwise, I'm going to continue with the notion that the free content is fair game, while judgement will probably not favour it over original content considering its less effort to import stock.

            Continue, that is, after I get home from work at 3:30 this arvo.

            Good luck all.

              Feel free to use free assets in your game. We're not super strict on everything being from scratch

                    whats the best option to work collab with the team, keeping in mind github is notoriously slow. Is there a tried and true method that isnt going to take the gamejam to upload ?

                                Can we use assets bought from the Marketplace?
