To help support your creations, we've made this page to clarify what you "can" and "can not" do with Mark of the Ninja. At the end of the day, we simply want to continue to perpetuate the great, positive community we have in our forums and help share our creations with each other.
THE GOLDEN RULES
To get things started, here's a simple list check list we like to call the "Golden Rules." If you're going to create something around Mark of the Ninja, whatever it may be:
- Make it clear that your creation is your own, and not by us.
- Be open, welcoming and respectful. Basically, don't be a jerk!
- Follow our Terms of Service. (Honestly, if you're not doing something illegal, you're probably fine)
If you can stick to those rules, the likely outcome is that we'll think what you're doing is pretty darn neat-o.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
We love fan-made creations, we share them around the office all the time. Our community manager also tries to find the best ones and spotlight them on our website. Most people fall into one of three categories: Personal, Public, Commercial.
If you want to make something just for yourself, go nuts. As long as you follow our Golden Rules, you're good to go. Have fun!
If you want to share your creations with the world (for free), that's no problem! Just follow the Golden Rules and share away.
If you want to share your creation as part of a business or for profit, contact us. If we think it's a good idea we'll get back to you.
If you want to produce small batch creations that are hand-made (by you personally, not an assembly line worker) creations, you may sell them as long as you follow the golden rules. For anything else, please contact us. If you do make something, we'd love to see it! Thank you to the friends fans who have mailed us their hand made creations. They're super awesome and on display in our studio!
YOUTUBE VIDEOS & MONETIZATION REQUESTS
If you want to upload videos of Mark of the Ninja to video sharing and streaming sites (like YouTube & Twitch) you can absolutely put ads on them. All we ask is that you consider adding a link somewhere to the game's Steam page, or the official website. You don't have to, but it would be super awesome if you did.
