Hinterland is not in a position to accept unsolicited game ideas, written materials, scripts, novels, artwork, etc. This is to protect our ability to work on our own original content, as accepting unsolicited materials can expose us to legal issues. Any unsolicited documents, manuscripts, etc. along these lines will be deleted immediately. Hinterland Studio Inc. accepts no liability for these materials.
Guidelines for user-generated fan content for non-commercial use are outlined below.
GUIDELINES FOR USER-GENERATED CONTENT
We also know many of our fans like to create trailers, short films, stories, art, and other work inspired by Hinterland Studio and The Long Dark. For these fan creations, we ask that creators clearly label their work as “fan-inspired” in the title and if applicable, in the video itself. This makes it easier for us to share all the compelling fan creations that emerge from our growing community.
