Hey, I'm new to this forum Cheesy
And I'm here at the moment, basically to ask a question for a friend
Hes learning CrystalSpace, and wants to know, the minimum age to actually legally release his game, and what age GMs have to be?

Why would there be an age limit to release a game? And why would there be an age limit to be a GM? Some games may impose such limits (for GM's) but CS is not a game. CS is a 3D engine.

Maybe you think about Planeshift. Or not...

There is no age limit or requirement for using any free software. Nor for any proprietary software I can think of.

However, a lot of things are easier when you're 18. You need to be 18 for a credit card. Credit cards make it easier to buy stuff online, like web hosting. If you want to charge for your game, you might need a merchant credit card account, which you also have to be 18 for. A lot of banks will give debit cards to people who are 15-16. They probably can't be used as credit cards, but a lot of internet sites accept debit cards. Most adults, such as loan officers, venture capitalists, and job interviewers, will take you more seriously the older you are, to a point. They're funny that way.

You can buy debit cards that double as credit cards from most grocery stores with cash. You have to pay extra though. Fees. Or you can ask your parents, which, of course, is never as easy or convenient as doing it yourself though.

But really, to make a game, it doesn't matter how old you are. And any obstacles, like paying for web hosting, you can get around if you really want to.
