    Is it possible to use some licensed killers that are in the game like Myers, Ghostface...?

    Is an original outfit we create for killer or survivor allowed to be in the video? Also, what kind of music is allowed?

  • BenAcidBenAcid Member Posts: 34

    I would guess every kind of music, as long as you have the rights to use it. Original Outfits shouldn't be a problem, the conditions only say it has to be inspired by Dead by Daylight.

    Of cause thats nothing official, just my thoughts.

    So basically no gameplay and making the video by ourselves? easy!

    You can work in a team I think. And just look at the stuff from last year (if it is aviable somewhere), that was nuts.

    And just editing gameplay isn't that big of a thing, so i guess to keep down those entries it forbidden.

    Do we title the entry with our real name or our steam name?
