I don't get it. What exactly do you mean?

I drew all aliens myself, pixel by pixel. I can provide the Gimp file.

Your graphics (and type of game) are extremely similar to the game Radiant's: https://lh6.ggpht.com/-iV8KMJiMt7UpCL5eU2yIbylCTbfys8HYPr-drVhxmqHjuHgSTU4XbOO7sk0amUjxPs=h900

Even if you did make those graphics yourself, it'd be best to change them, or people will accuse you of copying.

Sorry, but the comments about the graphics are completely ridiculous. There's only so many shapes you can make with this few pixels. Did you ever look at the classic space invaders? Might as well start demanding that Radiant is "ripping off" graphics of space invaders because theyre somewhat similar.

He drew the graphics himselves, no ripping off here, just a graphical style similar to a long standing tradition of space-invader like graphics.

Really guys, whats up with recommending that ppl do not make graphics similar to frickin space invaders? This is madness.

Ok, I played Radiant. Here are my thoughts about this:

Your graphics (and type of game)

I'm sorry, but except being a shooter genre, the gameplay is completely different. There is no spaceship in DI and thus no movement around, there are no bullets, boss levels are completely different, etc. If you played both games, you would easily find Radiant more similar to other games than DI.

are extremely similar to the game Radiant's

I looked at Radiant graphics, and I can only find two aliens that are similar (the minions on boss levels in wave 10 and 20). I have to admit they are somewhat similar, but nobody can claim I lifted the aliens from there as there are clear differences. Besides, I've seen such aliens in many games before. If you start from Space Invaders onwards, I bet you'll find more than one game that has both of these alien types. It's just a coincidence that Radiant is a newer, popular title, and thus more people know about it.

Even if you did make those graphics yourself, it'd be best to change them, or people will accuse you of copying.

Hm, maybe you're right. I just found a thread on Reddit and one of commenters also claimed the same. I'm seriously thinking to change those, but I'm not sure if this is even a good thing to do, because:

1. it would be admitting I used aliens from Radiant, which I did not
2. someone would probably find many other aliens similar to some other game, so I could be redrawing graphics all the time.

What would you guys do in such position?

Not give in to unfounded and frankly silly demands. What will be next? Will we not be allowed to make any game that looks similar to another game because "people will complain"? The only "people" who have a right to complain are other game makes you supposedly "rip off". And I'm pretty sure that Radiant's developers could not care less, nor would they think this as "ripping off".

Seriously, just explain what you explained here and otherwise ignore the noise.

Ok, so I e-mailed Hexage (Radiant developers) and here's their reply:

Hey guys,

how can I move this from WIP to Showcase? Should I start a new thread there or this thread would be moved somehow?

Thanks.
