Creative Partner Program

Creative Partner Program

Offworld Industries is proud to present the Creative Partner Program! The goals of the program are simple: to work with the creative members of our community interested in pushing their content further, growing their skills, and, most importantly, playing Offworld games. Simply put, if you’re dedicated to making awesome creative content inspired by our games, outside of the game, the CPP may be for you.

We’re still growing as a company and we’d like to help the community grow with us — we’re honored that you’ve chosen to work with us!

Who are the current partners?

If you’re looking for inspiration, you’ll do no better than checking out some of our current members of the Creative Partner Program:

How do I apply?

APPLY HERE

The longer answer: Read through the rest of this page then click the button above. Offworld Industries staff will review your submission. It might be helpful to think about your voice, your goals, and what you’d like to do with your content as you fill out the form. Don’t worry: we’ll keep your submission private unless you’re selected as a partner.

It should probably go without saying, but make sure you’re already producing content around Offworld Industries games — we want to see your skills in action!

Who qualifies?

Active creative content makers within the community are hand-vetted by Offworld Industries. We’re looking for people who take that extra step with their favorite games to create something new and special. We’re looking for the passionate creators that inspire us as much as games inspire them. Sound like you? Here are a few good guidelines:

  • Active, consistent production of content
  • A positive, respectful outlook
  • Willingness to cooperate
  • Involvement with existing communities
  • Active social media accounts
  • Good knowledge of the game(s), as well as gaming in general

It’s important to note that you do not need to exclusively play or broadcast OWI products. We realize there are plenty of gaming options out there and feel that a healthy, broad perspective of the gaming world is essential to enjoying participation in the partner program.

What the Program Isn’t

First and foremost, we’re not a replacement for engaging with the community or doing your own legwork. Your brand is as important to you as our games are to us — you should strive for continued growth!

While you will have access to more information, communication with the developers, and access to some of Offworld’s marketing capacity, Offworld still has the ultimate word about what happens with the OWI brands. This includes game design, as well as promotional considerations.

In other words, you’re still responsible for your craft — we can help, but your brand is yours to champion.

If you’re serious about a career in game development, we’d love to see your portfolio!

Perks and Benefits

Supporting our partners is one of the key pillars of the program. As the CPP is a living beast,  we expect perks to change and evolve with it, but here are a few examples:

  • Priority communication with Offworld employees
  • Access to creator-specific events and play sessions
  • Access to Closed Private Testing
  • Access to non-public information (e.g. WIP media, advanced knowledge of patch time, content, or blog posts)
  • Marketing support (Social media, charity events, Discord channels, website)
  • Official partner graphics
  • Event opportunities (e.g. PAX, E3)
  • Twitch hosting
  • More to come! Future plans include creator swag, welcome packages, and other incentives

None of this Nonsense

For the most part, you’re free to run things as you see fit. We do have a few hard and fast rules. We like to think of these as common sense.

  • No hate speech. This includes but is not limited to racial slurs, homophobic remarks, transphobic remarks, and other derogatory language.
  • No personal attacks or harassment.
  • No dishonesty or intentional misinformation about products.
  • No violation of copyrights. Be respectful. Get clearance.
  • No promotion of cheats, hacks, or exploits
  • No pornographic content.
  • No real-world gore, death, or excessively violent content.
