Kick Starter Funding

So today I came across this website called KickStarter.

Developers can put there project on this website and people will donate money until they make goal and in return get something once development is finished.

All that aside, could you put your graal server on KickStarter and gain financial support without running into any legal problems seeing that your server is run off of graal?

Graal is just a platform/engine so there's no reason you shouldn't be able to. Just don't make backing bonuses you can't deliver on.

You can try, but something tells me you'd be shutdown.

Isn't any graphics/code anything uploaded to a graal server property of whatever Graal company is calling it's self now? Toonslab?
I think that was in the EULA or something wasn't it?
Also pretty sure if you're putting a server on there which is part of Graalonline wouldn't work for you to earn money. Something Stefan would have to do most likely.

Sorting out a proper deal would be better...

50% of total funds earned might aswell go to eurocenter, the other half may be used for financing the server + salary for required developers, for instance

That would have be cool, too bad nobody ever went down this path to get paid developers. PC graal might have had a different lifespan.

Oh... There is a small joke in our community about making money by developing graal.

http://www.valikorlia.com/forum/show...e-compensation

Basically Unixmad suggested that a foot up your ass is compensation enough for developing anything for Graal. I sincerely doubt they will feel you are entitled to any money for your time and energy.

That being said, you could always do this on the sly for a bit. I don't see any reason against subletting, to borrow a term, the game's structure. In that sense, it is no different than purchasing the rights to license a game engine.

And hey, if you're really successful, why not get off of this engine altogether, heh... NetGore is a pretty neat system, for example.

I don't see why make a server for graal to get nothing in return, even on iPhone u get little money if anything. I advise you to gain funds and get a engine built that you can Dev like graal does and make it a cross platform for all devices and launch your own game.

I see. I'm pretty fluent in some other languages. I just wasn't sure what the legal side of this situation is..

Most likely I will take my development skills to another engine.

I was just curious
