I have a small, question. In the Sonic Shorts, each short had a signature icon avatar of the animator on the top right corner. Should we do that here too?

Are any Persona or Shin Megami Tensei shorts allowed? They weren't published by SEGA but now that SEGA purchased ATLUS all future Persona games and rereleases are from SEGA now.

I do believe at this point in time that answer is no. Reason for this may be due to the fact that these were acquisitions and not games published by and/or had any SEGA involvement in creative aspects.

More info will hopefully made available as it can be given.

Thanks for the reply! But publishing a game and acquiring a company are just about equal in actual involvement though. A lot of times games are published by different companies in different regions so I don't see why acquiring a company doesn't count as it being SEGA while publishing in one place does. I do understand your reasoning though.

Well if you justify it like that then Batman, Lora Croft, Kane and Lynche, The Full Metal Alchemist characters, and half the cast of Soul Eater are all now Final fantasy characters and must duke it out with Sepiroth! XD Sense Square published said games of these characters but didn't make the game.

^That's what I mean! If Bayonetta is allowed then how is Persona not? All publishing does is throw SEGA's logo in the splash screen even if they weren't very involved. Acquiring a company means SEGA is actually funding the games and rereleases while publishing it just puts it in the hands of retailers.

Some what of a point. Yes Sega now funds Atlas and its productions. But you still have to keep in mind that no one from Sega touch the game, they just give the money to make it then take a cut from the profits it makes. But as said before its really undecided, I personality say no just because Atlas never started out as SEGA as when Bayonetta came out she started out under Sega which i think is the reason shes considered one. Not to mention all her references to After burner in her first game and suttle hints to other Sega games.

Actually, you have a point. The problem is that if we're just basing it off of publishers then it can get pretty inaccurate. For example, if this was Nintendo Shorts Bayonetta would still be eligible because Nintendo also published it. I just think there should be a tad bit more clarification over what's Sega and what's not. For example, we all know Skies of Arcaida is considered as Sega here but it was developed by Overworks which was later purchased by Sega. Granted it was a Dreamcast exclusive at the time and published by SEGA, it may not have had much help from SEGA in development because they were its own company at the time. I'd argue Persona should be allowed because of both the confusion and to allow less Sonic shorts in Sega shorts. That and since Sega went as far as to give Atlus permission to revive any Sega series they want they're basically an integrated part of Sega now while at the same time having their independence when it comes to development.

Just wondering, is Fantasy Zone allowed?
I'm currently writing a game for the ZX Spectrum 16K called Cuboid Captor. You must roam a 3D maze whilst avoiding the Cuboid Captor.
