QuotePatent application title: Insertion of Graphics into Video GameAbstract:A video computer game is described that enables a user to generate and play a customized video game. The user retrieves a user generated pictorial background for placement in a graphics window in the game. User generated or previously provided objects are selected for placement on the background object. The pictorial background and selected objects are combined in a game workspace for editing. The combined background and objects are then placed into the graphics window of the game. A list corresponding to the selected objects is automatically created and placed in a list window of the game. The game may then be published or may be played privately by the user. During play of the game, the objects in the graphics window are selected and a selection indication is provided.
