If you are using assets that require credits, how would you provide those credits? Would a link be sufficient enough? And would you put the credits in like a credits screen or somewhere else?

Depends on the license! CC0 licensees don’t require it, and if it’s another license that does like CC4, they generally provide some guidelines. If none are provided it’s a good idea to name what was provided, the name or website of who provided it, and a link if possible.

Thank you! Would I put all this information ins a credits scene or somewhere else like a text file?


It needs to be somewhere that players of your game can see it, so a credits screen or splash screen would be appropriate. Just putting it in a text file probably wouldn't fulfill the license agreement if attribution is required.

I'm thinking about having a page in the main menu that has all the credit to the third party assets

I am going to make a credits button on my main menu and take it to a scrolling page of text with all the credits
