Can I pitch you my game or idea?

Please do not send us game ideas and other pitches. We have our hands full with our own ideas we want to bring to you! There are also legal reasons why we cannot accept unsolicited ideas. Unsolicited pitches will be deleted or destroyed in a safe manner.

Can I use Frictional’s games for video content?

Yes! You are welcome to create videos (like Let’s Plays, speedruns, reviews and commentary) using captured or streamed video from Frictional Games’ games and modding tools.

Can I monetise my videos?

Yes. You are allowed to create ad-supported videos (such as the YouTube Partnership program).

We also own the copyright to all music in our games so you won’t get flagged – lucky you!
