Policy on Fan Merchandise

By Supergiant Games September 1st, 2020

Last Updated November 5, 2020 We're sometimes asked by fans whether it's OK to create and sell merchandise based on our characters and worlds, and this policy is intended to provide an answer. We love seeing your creations inspired by our games, including Hades, Pyre, Transistor, and Bastion. We also want fans of our games to have the best experiences possible. So, if you are interested in creating and selling fan merchandise, we have a few guidelines we are asking you to follow:

  • Making and selling limited, hand-made fan merchandise inspired by our games ("items") is generally fine, and does not require getting express written permission from us. However, you are not permitted to mass-produce or mass-distribute items without our express permission. If you wish to make items at scale, or you are a for-profit business, you need to reach out to us via the Contact page on our web site for licensing inquiries.

  • Make clear that your items are unofficial, and not related to or authorized by Supergiant Games. Specifically, do not use the "Supergiant Games," "Hades," "Pyre," "Transistor," or "Bastion" trademarks and logos. Do not use official art or assets from our games.

  • You can only sell items directly to consumers. Do not sell them on large stores such as Redbubble, Displate, Society6, or Amazon.

  • Do not associate Supergiant Games or any of our games or brands with content that runs counter to the spirit of our games, i.e. content that is offensive, inappropriate, or otherwise in poor taste.

  • We reserve the right to ask you to remove any works at any time at our sole discretion for any reason. We likewise reserve the right to update this policy at any time and for any reason.

We appreciate your compliance with this policy. If you have further questions, please let us know what's on your mind using the Contact page on our web site.
