    Hello :D I've come here because I'm interested in promoting my game, discuss it and have fun and stuff.

    I'm wondering now how tolerant this forum is when it comes to fan games and/or games made in engines that are designed to make fangames in? There is this obscure engine called Zelda Classic that was initially made to recreate custom quests for The Legend of Zelda (nes), but has been expanded upon since to give more creative freedom.

    Would it be okay to make a thread in Announcements about a new game made in this engine? The game i wanna post in particular is not even a Zelda game and uses no graphics, sound or anything from Zelda. (It's a serious game I made with a friend and much thought and love went into it's design :) )

    Go for it. If it becomes too contentious I'll let you know.

    So you're using the Zelda Classic engine but you're not infringing on any copyright as far as I can tell. You could even make a commercial project out of it without any problems.
