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"

About royalties in an escaperoom challenge

Hello. I have been tasked with making a small game to be part of an escape room challenge.

An escape room challenge is a real life "game" where you are locked in a room and solve puzzles to escape.

The game I will be making will be one of these puzzles. I am considering using unreal for this. The game would be a time based animation, where when the player inputs the corect code (found in the room), the animation changes and they are given a new code (to be used in the room).

I will be paid for making the game, and the escaperoom business is paid when people play their rooms. The game I am making, will in it self, not be for sale, it is only a part of the escape room challenge.

So I am wondering if there would be any royalties due for this. For either me or the escaperoom business? And if not would I still need to notify Epic?

Thank you for your time.

Hey there,

Thanks for the note. I love Escape rooms. This sounds like a fun project.

Based on your description of the application no royalty would be due on this application.

Have fun.
