Support–A–Creator Program

If you are a gaming community leader, a streamer, a blogger, or the administrator of a public group about Grim Soul, the following information is for you.
We want to support talented and active players. That means VK community administrators, YouTube and Twitch channel owners, and Instagram page owners who plan to create content about our game can join our partner program.
Our partnership program is an opportunity for mutually beneficial cooperation between our studio and content creators. It’s an agreement that can help you and your channel develop and can help us support and spread honest gaming.

How can I become a content partner

We cooperate with others based on the principles of trust and solidarity, so all that’s required of you is submitting this application. Filling out and submitting an application will count as your acceptance of the above conditions and acknowledgement that you would like to participate in our content creator partnership program.
We require the information outlined in our application for us to be able to input you into our partner database. Your listing in the database confirms our acknowledgement of you as a participating partner in our Support-A-Creator program.
Applicants will be notified of their official acceptance into the program through personal contact from a studio representative.
Why we want to collaborate with content creators? Developing an influencer base grows our game and the surrounding community. Quality content created with passion and initiative attracts more gamers and increases Grim Soul’s potential. We aren’t offering monetary compensation because paid advertising simply isn’t our style. It lacks heart and honesty. That’s why we’re searching for genuinely passionate players who love our work and play for their own enjoyment.
The community manager will always have the final say on promotion by category, content posts, issuing rewards, and partner program enrollment. Please remember that the administration reserves the right to decline collaboration with you without notice or explanation.

How can I become a content partner?

The most important condition is playing our games and creating entertaining content!
Content creators have to be interested in our products as our games are fairly complex and require mastering a variety of in-game mechanics. Run an active channel with subscribers and an engaged audience. We may sometimes make exceptions if we find creators with fewer subscribers so long as they produce exciting top-quality content.
  1. Create high quality content. We expect our partners to create interesting, engaging content that is easily accessible to viewers; videos accompanied with top-notch audio, a resolution of at least 1280х720 (HD), that fit our studio’s aesthetic and ethical principles with minimal required input from our team. We’ve observed that good Grim Soul content is impossible without creators’ personal interest and engagement, and we’re most interested in content made with a genuine passion and love for our game.
  2. Loyalty to Grim Soul and our studio. We expect our partners to approach the game, other players, and the developers with respect and honesty. We’re always glad to receive constructive criticism and aren’t interested in censoring people’s opinions about our hard work. At the same time, we expect partners to create quality, respectful content and communicate their criticism to our team and the Grim Soul community with objectivity, never in a derogatory or spiteful manner.
  3. Confidentiality. Any material or communications with studio officials can only be published if expressly agreed to. Any exclusive content not accessible for publication with other partners can be added to your created content only with the studio’s express agreement.
  4. Friendliness towards players and social media. We expect partners to be loyal and respectful to Grim Soul’s diverse and vibrant community. We ask partners to refrain from toxic and obscene language. We understand that obscenity may be a crucial and audience-appreciated part of some creators’ content, and we can certainly make exceptions for those with audiences that expect a certain type of content from them.
  5. Honest gameplay. Partners may not under any circumstance use cheats, mods, or hacked versions of the game—we expect the creators we collaborate with to play the game honestly and fairly, as it is made. The same goes for conducting giveaways and contests.
  6. Help us to promote the game. Each video creator is required to use the game's download links provided by the studio in the description.
Breaking the above conditions will result in a partner’s permanent exclusion from the Support-A-Creator program and stripping of all associated privileges (possibly including an outright ban on their in-game account).
If questionable content is posted, we reserve the right to insist on the deletion of videos or streams.
Violation of these conditions will lead to the creator's permanent expulsion from the program and stripping of all privileges (including locking their game account).

Terms and conditions for giveaway contests

We sometimes pick a few of our partners and ask them to conduct giveaways of in-game items on their livestreams or under their posted videos. The more subscribers you have and the higher the quality of the content you produce, the more likely we are to choose you. We limit our partners’ studio-supported giveaways to at most once a week.
Partners’ giveaway conduct should be transparent and clear to the Grim Soul team, your audience, and participants. We encourage creativity and interesting ideas! The key thing to remember is: it’s your job to initiate and adjudicate giveaways, but it’s the studio’s job to deliver the prizes.
To conduct a giveaway contest
  • provide the studio with the most detailed description of how it will be conducted. The fewer questions we have, the quicker we’ll authorize your plan;
  • receive studio approval;
  • conduct your giveaway contest;
  • collect winners’ in-game IDs;
  • timely communicate to us winners’ relevant information (Name/nickname; in-game ID; and the prize(s) they won);
  • partners may give out up to 5 prizes per giveaway, the value and quantity of which depends on the number of views and content quality. Usually, we give out products found in the in-game store such as coins, oats, weapon and armor sets, as well as pets.
We’re actively working towards making giveaway contests as automated and quick as we can, which is why a great deal depends on our trust in you and our communication with you.
Please be aware that we will permanently ban content creators from our partnership program if we discover that they have actively misled or deceive other players.
The value of prizes and contest frequency depend on a partner's rank. The rules for giveaways are available in the document on partner gradations.

Leaving the program

Leaving the program means deleting creators from our partnership database and ceasing collaboration based on the above outlined conditions. This can occur due to partners violating the terms of the partnership or due to creators wishing to exit the program voluntarily.
