Is using another game's concept art illegal? If they didn't use it that is?

What do you mean by this? Is using, but not using another game's concept art illegal? Well, if its not copyrighted then they can't claim it, but its pretty distasteful to do so, copyright or not.

It was just a question I thought of.

What I meant was is it illegal to use a concept another game had but never used.

Depends on how distinct it is from the game it was produced for. If it is so similar and distinctly derived from the game's source material, the conceot art is a derivative work and copyrighted. If not, the artist himself would have copyright claims. Copyright is established TECHNICALLY when the material is in a fixed form. But registration helps. Personally, I would find the use of another's concept to produce a new product to be in poor taste.

Yeah I agree, it would be poor taste. I was just wondering because it seems a lot of good concept art seems to just get wasted.

define 'wasted'. It might not necessarily get shown to the public, but that isn't the point of 'concept art'. Concept art is part of the design process, its not a PR tool. Companies usually create art specifically for PR purposes, and standard concept art is solely used internally for defining atmosphere and drafting designs.

Concept art can't get "wasted". One of the reasons is that sometimes it's basically just an idea of an atmosphere, a style or an emotion. It doesn't always have to be fully implemented in a game.

Yes, we do have plans for combat. We will be making a series of updates as we go soon, combat being a focus on the way.
