  • Hi ! I have a big project who consist to do a game (more precisely a Visual Novel Game) , i have a lot of ideas to do this game but i have a question because in this game , my story focus on creepypasta (and i need to use some creepypastas for my story and use the characters like jeff the killer) , so can i use they for free ? or they are copyright for them ? 

    Thanks you in advance for responses.

    • All the content on this site is copyrighted on Wiki. if I understand the current situation properly. Others though might be privately copyrighted, so you'd need permission to use a creepypasta for your game.

    • Hi there, stories on this site are generally released under CC BY-SA, so you will need to abide by the terms of this license. This means you must properly credit the authors, and release any derivative works (e.g: your game) under the same license. So you'd need to release whatever you make under CC BY-SA also & provide credit. Also, while it's not a strict legal requirement, it's generally the right thing to do to ask for approval from the original author to use their work first, rather than just going ahead without even letting them know what you're doing. Good luck.

      You probably will never find the Author but i would cover my butt by useing content that has the authors name and asking. Even though its covered under the CC act if you don't do the crediting right, it will fall onto you.
