Questions about music rights


#1

( I have no idea where to put this so game development i guess? Feel free to move it.)

I’m planning after I finish the first chapter to mess around with some music and animations/pictures. The pictures and animation are mine, I payed for them, but the music would not be. I would not use it in the actual game, but I want people to get the feel for just the demo and what I want the atmosphere of the game to be. If I’m not planning on publishing the game (if I ever get the chance or to that point) with it, can I use it for just the demo? Its like a clip from the Witcher 3.

CD Project Red are very responsive for permissions requests if you’re not trying to profit from their assets.

Drop their legal guys an email and see what they say.

That seems like a good idea. I’ll go ahead and do that.
