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"

How do I get my game out if I don't have a company?

Hello everyone. I'm working on a few game projects I plan to release them to the public in the future. I don't have a company though I'm a indie developer. How can I get my game out?

Product Version: UE 4.10

I think your question is a general one and not something specific to Epic, so I'll leave it to the community to answer.

As for Epic, there is nothing in the EULA that requires you, the licensee, be an officially organized entity (like a corporation).

You can release your game(s) on Steam without being a corporation. Steam will require you to enter a company name but it doesnt have to be anything official. Your game will have to pass through Greenlight first though(+about 100$)

Thanks, so should I just use the same name over for every game?

It's up to you i guess. I dont see a reason why one would use a new name to publish each game. There are people who do that but not for reasons that help in any way(i.e. some guy releases a broken game and doesnt respect user comments and complaints so he releases his next game under a different name/account hoping people wont find out, but they usually do...)

You can also release you game on itch.io but you would have to make your own advertising. Itch will simply host your game on their server.
