Fan creation policy

We at Thrill Switch Games believe strongly in respect for small creators and indie studios alike. Regarding that respect, we ask that our friends and fans please take a moment to read over our studio policies regarding fan-made content involving our copyrighted properties, both intellectual and tangible. We have broken this policy down into questions that you may have for an easier read!Can I create fanart of any Thrill Switch production?Yes! You may make fanart, fanfiction, and any other fan-made content of any of our works, including NIGHT/SHADE © and Evil Like Me ©, as long as the fan-made content abides by our core values and is not racist, homophobic, transphobic, bigoted, or otherwise hateful and harmful.PLEASE NOTE: The character, Ada, in NIGHT/SHADE ©, is trans masculine. If you are going to draw fanart of him, please be courteous and cautious when it comes to “gender-bending”. Gender-bending a trans masculine character may come off as insensitive to some, so please exercise consideration when creating fan works of Ada. This is a direct note from his creator, a trans man.Can I sell the fanart that I make of any Thrill Switch production?We ask that people please do NOT sell any merchandise of any Thrill Switch works, including NIGHT/SHADE © and Evil Like Me © at this time. We are a very, very small studio, and while we love to see fan creations, purchasing merchandise through our official studio store is a great way to support us!Will you have a Thrill Switch store open so that we can purchase merchandise?Yes, we have a store that you can purchase merchandise from, here!Are you open to partnerships?We are definitely leaning into this idea, yes! Currently, we have nothing official just yet, but may be aiming to work with other artists and studios who may want to collaborate and partner for official merchandise runs and limited time items. If you’re interested in this partnership, please contact info@nightshadevn.comIf you have any further questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to contact us!
