- How closely can a game legally resemble another? 11 answers
I’m making a clone game of Zelda, my favorite franchise, and am wondering if what I’m doing will still earn me a cease order.
Obviously I’m not using any of the names from the original series, and my game allows character creation with clothing that will allow you to look slightly like Link if you unlock it. With the skin name being something like “Woodland warrior shirt/hat/boots.
I’m also copying the UI for links awakening pretty closely and the way dungeons look is about the same.
However, I’m making all my own textures/assets from scratch.
Will I be allowed to release this game, with the title “Legend of Dungeons …”?
Main concerns are: similar UI, Font, Some skins resemble characters slightly, and textures, even though they’re all made by my hand?
