I did look around the forums for discussions on public domain, but didn’t really find a specific stance on the matter.
Gamebooks involving characters from Public Domain don’t violate anyone’s Intellectual Property (as long as they aren’t using ideas specific to commercial reboots).
I was wondering what Choice of Game’s stance would be on publishing such a game. Are there any rules about publishing games with known characters?
The WIP thread “Guenevere” is an an example of such a game, but I was wondering if CoG would even host that game. The game seems great and I see no reason why it couldn’t be hosted/sold under a CoG label. She’s also expressed interest in a “Robin Hood” game (which I was looking into making when I found hers. I don’t want to come in and pre-empt her future project…)
There are several works of literature written before the 1900s that are popular enough to spawn several reboots today, and would probably be blockbuster Choice of Games if they were published. Does anyone agree?
What are some that you are interested in seeing?
