What operating system are you on?
Unity3D is sadly not playable on Linux. I'm not sure why, since it's so aweasome! i'm on Windows XP by the way :).
The difference is that while both can make 2D and 3D games, Unity is easy to make 3D games in, you write scripts in javascript, c#, or Boo, heavily utilizing the Unity3D API.
I'm just learning it right now, but I'm starting with a 2D game.
If you're on Linux, you won't be able to play this linked game. The guy who made this game is a great developer.

If I ever make a game that I'm not ashamed to put online, I'd be happy to put it on for free, with never getting payed, and not even needing too much credit. I'd just like to be able to upload it on diverse sites :P

That raises a question.

Are you paying people just to put their games on your site, or to regularly make games for your site?
Also, would we still have ownership of the game, but have to include a link to your site, but allow us to put it on whatever site we want?

I'm on Windows XP, so its all good  :)

Yes, I want people to regularly make games for my site.

The ownership part, I am not sure of... I would like to have the SWF file, but by giving that to me, are you giving me ownership? Or are you just giving me the file? Because I would like to host the SWF file myself.

By giving you the SWF file, you do not own rights to the game. It means that I simply allowed you to put the game on your site. of course, I don't even need to directly give you the SWF file. Some sites somehow (I do not know how, but using some javascript I think) make bots to automatically get games off big sites.

The creator of the game would own it unless he actually sold you the rights, which means that you could do whatever you want.

I see. All I would want is the SWF file, the creator can keep the ownership. And also be able to give to other sites, but make a few that are just my site.

What would be the point of having it just on your site?
If we included a link back to your site in-game or through the game description, there would be more traffic to your site, making you more ad revenue.

SWATLLAMA -

I am not familiar with Unity3D games... what is the difference?

mikbob -

That sounds good to me. Would you want just a link to your site? Or do you have a banner?
Not sure yet. There is only one condition: you take my game down if I ask you to. Its just that I don't want my game mistreated.

Nordlinder, did you get my PM?
Mikbob: How would a game be mistreated? Do you mean hacking it?

You don't want to be a publisher right? Or do you want us to put a splash screen of your site?

From what I've seen people take games without permission/pay. My Stencyl game Hops got on over 30 flash gaming sites a few days after I released it on Kongregate/newgrounds.

None of them asked me for permission, not that I care. Anyways, I'd gadly add my futur game to your site, good luck with it.

Thanks, and no, I'm not looking to be a publisher, because that would take to much time away from my website.

I can try to make a game for the site now, any type of game you want made in particular?
