Hello,

I'm wondering if I could use the Calibri font for commercial use in order to make games or app (searching on Google, there are some informations but confused)

I doubt that you will have any problems. I'm sure it's public domain.

No! It's licensed by Microsoft, but the license is a bit confused.
After some research I think I have no permission to do, but tomorrow i will call Microsoft support to ask about.
Anyway, thank you

Hello,
I called microsoft but they couldn't answer me. I did some more research and i find this site:
http://catalog.monotype.com/family/microsoft-corporation/calibri?keyword=calibri
so if you select calibri and press "View cart" button, it will shown you the price of the license based on the platform. You will see desktop, web, server.... and Game. You must put the name of your game and the platform (android, windows, etc), so it will be calculated the price. Well, for a desktop game, the price is $3000.  Lel. Android just $750 xD

Now I need replace all of my image that use calibri ahah

$3000 seems absurd. I think that the fact that Microsoft themselves couldn't answer you speaks volumes. I'm a bit suspicious of https://catalog.monotype.com/.

As long as you're not packing the font to resell I'm sure you won't have issues.

catalog.monotype.com seems legit

may be if that doesn't worked out,
you could download a TTF file  from Google Fonts ( pretty sure they are free for commercial use ) and then
make a new font in stencyl and in that font > Font Style > Font > choose your font
works fine atleast on mine  :)

Another good idea would be to make a custom bitmap font. Because with that way, you know it's licensed to yourself, as it's your own original creation.

Yes, thank you guys, the fact is that I made some image with that font (such as buttons), so I need to change the images itselfs.
