For Content Creators

YouTubers, Twitch streamers, bloggers, or, shortly: social media influencers of any kind and especially video content creators are a vital part of the gaming community: We absolutely want to support your endeavours and effort for video games in general and indie games in particular.

That is why we would like to make your work easier by giving you some general info regarding video creation rights:

You are welcome to create and publish videos of our game FAR: Lone Sails and, if you want to, also monetize them. This includes videos like Let’s Plays, Reviews, Tutorials, Commentary, etc., both live-streamed or pre-recorded.

Please do not publish video content before May 14, 2018.

You do not need to request written permission to create such content. We do encourage you to send over links of your videos so we can share them.

Feel free to refer to our press kit anytime and use texts, pictures, or videos you find there. You can request a key via Keymailer.co.

Though we cannot and don’t want to dictate which kind of video content you create, we would like to gently remind you that full playthroughs of shorter and more linear games may lead to less sales – and, though we wished it were different, sales are needed to create more non-mainstream games in the future. Therefore, we would be grateful if you didn’t show much further than about one hour into the game.

If you have any additional questions regarding video licensing, copyright, or our policies, please contact us at mail@far-game.com

Please note that we reserve the right to update this policy without notice or liability.

Dear Content Creators,

first of all, thank you so much for all the attention you are bringing to FAR: Lone Sails. It really is overwhelming and we appreciate all the kind words.

Unfortunately, we have a problem that may affect you. The game was featuring two song snippets played over the radio in game. Videos containing footage with these songs have recently been copyright claimed on Youtube and other platforms. According to our information, those snippets were under no licence and therefore free to use. Unfortunately, somebody is now claiming the rights for those songs. We are working hard to solve this issue.

In any case, these snippets have been replaced with unobjectionable material in an update on May 23.

If you are currently producing material that still contains the pre-patch music, please make sure to disable the sound at the spots where this music is playing (radio tower and workshop) during your broadcast.

We are very sorry for any trouble this may have caused you. If your video was claimed by Youtube, please contact us at support@far-game.com, if you haven’t already.
