Amazon Games Content Usage Policy

We believe players are the driving force behind games, and we're great fans of all the amazing stuff game communities create every day. So if you're interested in creating content based on games we develop or publish, here is our basic philosophy: you can use our game content in tasteful projects that are provided free of charge to the game community. We have some rules in our Terms of Use (see section 4.2) and below, but that's the gist.

Keep it Relevant: your project should benefit and reinforce the game's community.

Non-Commercial Use: while the general rule is you may use our game content for non-commercial projects only, we're okay if you are monetizing your projects via ads, sponsorships, or subscriptions on Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, Patreon, or similar sites so long as they are suitable for a general audience (e.g., you may not monetize your project via OnlyFans). It's not okay if your project will generate any other type of revenue. If you're a corporation or other registered business entity, you need to talk to us first.

No Games or Mods: sorry, but it's not okay to make your own game using our game content or to create mods. If things change for a particular game, we'll let you know.

Logos & Project Endorsement: it's okay to use our game logos (but not an Amazon or Twitch logo) to identify your project as associated with the game, but make it clear that it's a fan project and don't distort game logos or use them in a way that implies we endorse your project (e.g., don't prominently feature them alone on a website). And don't claim we endorse you either. (It's, of course, okay to wear, for example, an officially licensed t-shirt with the game's logo in your broadcast on Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, Patreon, or similar sites suitable for a general audience.) Similarly, we will not claim you endorse the game or us without your consent.

Respect the Law and Other People's Intellectual Property: your project must comply with applicable laws, and you must make sure you have permission to use music, assets, and any other content in your projects.

Keep Your Projects Tasteful: projects that are hateful, obscene, or otherwise objectionable in our judgment are not okay (e.g., nudity, pornography, and other sexual content are prohibited).

Streaming and Use of Gameplay: we strive to make games to be as fun to watch as they are to play. When you stream or otherwise show game content:

We Get a License: we can use and amplify your project to the extent it's based on our game IP, and we can credit you in return.

Although we're excited about all the interesting things you may want to make with our game content, we reserve the right to revoke your limited license to use our game content at any time without having to give any specific explanations. Often it's going to be because we think the game content is being used in ways we find inappropriate, or damaging to the game community or player experience. If we revoke this limited license, you'll have to stop using or distributing game content in your project. Violations of this policy may also result in a temporary or permanent suspension of your access to our games.

If you see something that you think may violate this policy, please help us and the community by reporting it to us on forums or social media.
