Visionaire Studio 5 - INDIE (Single User) Licenses

    Hi,

    I bought Visionaire Studio 5 - INDIE (Single User) a couple months ago. I am a little confused after reading the License agreement.

    "This license allows you to digitally distribute your game (unlimited titles) for Windows, Mac, and Linux."

    "With this license you can share your game as a physical product between friends, or as a technical demo via a cd, dvd, or usb device, for free. Commercial distribution of your game as a physical product in retail stores is forbidden, unless you acquire a professional license."

    So, if I understand correctly I can sell a game I make with this license on Steam or other digital platform?

    thank you for your help!

    That's correct. You can digitally distribute any game you make for windows, mac, & linux platforms with that license, on stores such as Steam, GOG, Epic, Humble Bundle, etc. There's no limitations on the amount of games you can make or distribute digitally.

    You can also distribute HTML5 versions of your game, but only if you distribute them for free or with ad based (adsense) monetization. If you are contracted/hired by someone else to create an html5 game for them, or you sell the rights to your html5 game to someone else, then the indie licenses aren't valid for that.

    Anyway, hope this clears some things up for you.

    do you get free updates with that license? Do we buy v6 again when that comes out?

    At the rate .x versions come out, I don't think you have anything to worry about. It will probably be a couple of years before 6.x is released - with whatever features/changes that might bring, but in the meantime you get all 5.x updates included with any of the current licenses.
