Games/Fangames

If you do not sell your game you can feel free to use my original characters in games as long as you adhere to the following:

  • our game may only be built Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android systems. Please keep it off of consoles and other systems where users must go through an approval process to be allowed on the system.
  • Do no accept payments for your game whenever possible. Having a Patreon is fine, but where possible people should not be allowed to pay you for the game.
  • DO NOT PUT Z VOCAL PROJECT IN THE TITLE OF YOUR GAME. Above all else I ask that you don’t try and market your game under Z Vocal Project. The first Z Vocal Project game is years away and I do not want fangames with that in the title releasing ahead of it.
  • Your game should not encourage hate speech, harassment, bullying, acts of violence, or anything of the sort. Using my underage characters in sexual games is also forbidden.
  • Do not use any art drawn by me in the game or its marketing materials unless I’ve said otherwise.
  • Please understand that even if you follow the terms of the license, you may be asked to take down your game or remove my characters.
  • Z Vocal Project and Dunder-P must be credited.

If you have the license for any Z Vocal Project voicebank, unless otherwise stated you have permission to use that character in paid games. You may feel free to charge people for it and put it on any console you like however there are still restrictions:

  • You still do not have permission to put Z Vocal Project in the title or try to market it as a Z Vocal Project game.
  • You are licensed to that character and that character alone, you are not allowed to use mascots of voicebanks you don’t own the license to, nor can you use characters that don’t have voicebanks. Setting details and references to Z Vocal Project canon are allowed, you just cannot use characters without contacting me.
  • You can use official art in the game and it’s marketing as long as it’s explicitly stated to be granted to license owners. The artist must be credited.
  • Your game should not encourage hate speech, harassment, bullying, acts of violence, or anything of the sort. Using my underage characters in sexual games is also forbidden.
  • Please understand that even if you follow the terms of the license, you may be asked to take down your game or remove my characters. Additionally if you make over a certain amount of money you will need to negotiate a new license for that game specifically.
  • Z Vocal Project and Dunder-P must be credited.

Fanart

I would absolutely love for you to make fanart of my characters, and encourage you to share it with me. That said, there are restrictions:

  • Yo cannot sell your fanart, unless you have the character’s license, in which case you are allowed to make up to a certain amount per year before needing to negotiate licenses.
  • Please tag your art if it contains anything that will very obviously trigger people. Your art should not encourage hate speech, harassment, bullying, acts of violence, or anything of the sort.
  • Do not draw porn of underage characters, or members of the Z Music Club even if they’re of legal age. I do not care if you “age them up” it’s still gross and I will have it taken down.
  • Please understand that even if you follow the terms above, you may be asked to take down your art.

Social Media Icons

Feel free to use drawings of my characters/Z Vocal Project characters as your icon on various social media sites. Official Art is fine, but don’t use other people’s fanart unless they’re fine with it. Additionally please don’t use the icons of any Z Vocal Project related account as to prevent confusion.

If you want to use my characters as emotes on sites like Twitch and Youtube, where people need to give you money to use them, you must either contact me before hand or own their character license. The same rules that apply to fanart apply to these emotes. You do not need permission for emotes on sites like discord.

PVs/Animations/Etc.

I’m going to treat these like fanart, so basically just refer to that section. The only exception is that if you don’t own the character license, I ask that you don’t use them in the PV for an original song even if the PV itself isn’t monetized.

Exceptions

I do not own the art or characters from the visual novel “Gamer”+, those rights belong to Pencil Peach, and to my knowledge she does not like being reminded of them, and thus I ask you don’t do anything with them.
