Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Some legal questions

1- If i sell a commercial game and i pay/give to Epic the 5% of royalties x months, i need to buy that month or next month the engine subscription or Epic give me free that months the subscriptions ? ( and in company are 2 to 4 workers)

2- If in my game, web or license have a line with "Please if you make videos or streamings of this game and generate money with that consider donate a %" and for example some Youtubers give/donate me/company a $$$, i need pay from that $$$ the 5% or royalties ?

1- You dont need to be subscribed when/after your game is released. So Epic doesnt give you free subscription and you dont need to buy subscription again.

1) On your first question, Jacky is correct; whether you maintain a subscription is independent of whether and when you owe royalties. You are welcome to continue to be subscribed, but it's not a requirement.

2) Based on your description, the donations you describe would constitute revenue actually attributable to your game, so royalties would be owed (although, per the EULA, note that the first $3,000 in revenue per product per quarter is royalty free).
