    Where to mail for Let's Play permission (Anachronox)?

    To (hopefully) make a Let's Play series of Anachronox, I am trying to get a video permission by Square Enix. But I couldn't find out who to contact for one.
    On Square Enix' website, I couldn't find a fitting e-mail address to send the question. I did contact the legacy games support, but of course they don't really deal with this kind of things.
    To my knowledge, an LP is technically illegal without the right holders' permission (and usually only tolerated in that case). I would rather have it all be correct.

    Games support sent a reply to this, my question has been answered. Posting this here in case anyone else has that question later.

    Short answer: Square Enix doesn't allow Let's Plays of their games.
