Hello everyone! New to the Gauntlet, hope this topic belongs here!
I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with making tribute games? I have started on a system based completely off of the movie Pacific Rim, and if I don’t really plan on making money off of it, just releasing it into the world for people to play and to get my name out there a bit, do you think I will run into trouble with Warner Bros in the event that it gains any popularity?
If I wanted to publish it physically and charge for the cost of production and shipping (with possibly some margin for profit) would that cause issues? If I published it as part of a larger platform that makes its own money (say the Codex) would that pose any problems?
Things I am using that is theirs:
-Names of things (Jaeger, Ranger, Kaiju, LOCCENT etc.)
-The entire concept + history of their world
-I’m not sure about art yet
I could be overthinking it but if anyone has any thoughts I would love to hear them!
