This may be of interest to some people. I was poking around in the CC-BY and CC-BY-SA 2.0 legal code, and there's an important clause covering adaptations (that is, derivative works) that works in OGA's favor:
4(b). You may distribute, publicly display, publicly perform, or publicly digitally perform a Derivative Work only under the terms of this License, a later version of this License with the same License Elements as this License, or a Creative Commons iCommons license that contains the same License Elements as this License (e.g. Attribution-ShareAlike 2.0 Japan). [...] (emphasis mine)
What this means to us is that, while we can't accept CC 2.0 works on their own (due to incompatibilities with libre software), it's possible to create derivative works of those works and license them under the 3.0 licenses. What this means is that, for example, you can grab CC-BY 2.0 photos off of Flickr (seriously, wtf, I thought they supported the 3.0 licenses the last time I looked. Maybe I'm going crazy...), transform them into tiling textures, and release those textures under CC-BY 3.0 (or later) -- the same goes for CC-BY-SA 2.0 -> 3.0. The important caveat is that you must transform the work in some way. If you just post the original work, that's not a derivative, and you're not allowed to just update the license without permission from the author.
The Liberated Pixel Cup code entries have been posted!
Note that due to the larget volume of entries (48 code entries alone, plus a large number of art entries), judging may take longer than we had originally thought. Our current time frame for judging is the end of August. We'll keep people posted on our progress.
Also note that the judges have not had time yet to thoroughly go through each entry, so it's possible that some may be mislabeled (HTML5, team vs. individual, etc). If you see any mislabeled entries or duplicates, please let us know and we'll fix them ASAP.
From the LPC Blog:
I'm happy to say that the art competition has wrapped up beautifully. And that also means: the code phase of the competition has begun! Coders, start your engines.
We got a bunch of really great art entries in this release. You can view the list of entries here, or if you'd like to peruse all the files locally (perhaps so you can more easily incorporate them into your game?), you can download an archive of all entries here(mirror 1, mirror 2, mirror 3).
We hoped to get a lot of entries that managed to match the style but also do interesting, useful, and varied things. I'm happy to say that this happened. Here's some interesting samples (note this is NOT an indication of quality of entries or pre-judging, but selected as a sample of variety of style) from various entries, showing the massive variety of work we got:
We got entries that could be useful for different types of game genres, such as this farming set:
We got entries for different thematic genres (but still generally matching the style!) as this scifi set:
We got a wide variety of character designs, and even some new animations:
We even got er… toilet tilesets. :)
On top of this there are new characters, character animations, new environments and landscapes, houses, items, UI elements… the list goes on and on.
With all these cool things to look at and play with, there's one major thing that still needs to happen: we need people to build games with these things! So that leads to the question: are you a game developer, or capable of being a useful member of a game development team? Then you should dive in and get involved today! Grab the archive, check out thestyle guide, read the rules… then get to building games! We look forward to seeing your entry!
