Artix Entertainment Name, Brand, and Assets Usage Guidelines

We love seeing members of our community inspired by the games and products we create!  We’ve received many requests to use or display content created by Artix Entertainment to help you share your videos, fan art, and websites, or to show off in-game accomplishments and contributions. We are happy to help you do that! We just ask that anything you create follows our Terms and Conditions and specifies which content was created by  Artix Entertainment (art, music, design, etc).

Before using Artix Entertainment content, make sure your creation:

  • Includes a link to Artix.com and the website of the game you are displaying in the description of the page, channel, or site you create
  • Does not claim to be made by a member or representative of Artix Entertainment
  • DOES NOT promote, endorse, or include videos, graphics, or guides showing cheating, hacking, phishing, or other activities that violate our Terms and Conditions
  • Complies with the Guidelines listed below 

This helps us:

  • Avoid confusion about what Artix Entertainment creates, is connected to, or endorses
  • Keep members of our community safe and prevents our name, brand, and assets from being used to take advantage of other people (Remember, AE team members will NEVER ask you for your password, credit card, or account information!)

These Guidelines are intended to help everyone understand what you can and cannot safely (and legally) do when you are using Artix Entertainment’s intellectual property without having to ask for permission first. They will be updated as needed.

If you have additional questions or see anyone using Artix Entertainment’s intellectual property in a way that doesn’t follow the guidelines below (like hacking/phishing websites, private servers, or other copyright violations), please contact us using our Copyright Violation form.

Official Guidelines

These Guidelines cover the use of the Artix Entertainment Brand and all assets created by Artix Entertainment for any and all of its products. For these purposes, therefore when we refer to:

  • The Artix Entertainment Name refers to the name Artix Entertainment and any confusingly similar name;
  • The Artix Entertainment Brand refers to the Artix Entertainment Name and the related logos and distinctive characteristics of Artix Entertainment and any of its products;
  • The Artix Entertainment Assets refers to the code, software, graphics, textures, sound, and audio created by Artix Entertainment.
  • All guidelines put in place for the Artix Entertainment Name, Brand, and Assets extend to any existing or future products created by Artix Entertainment (ex. AdventureQuest Worlds).

These Guidelines apply in addition to and not in place of the Artix Entertainment Terms and Conditions. Please remember that in those terms, you agree not to impersonate any member of the Artix Entertainment staff, or in any way prevent other users from enjoying Artix Entertainment products. This also means you may not make any commercial use of anything we've made or modified versions of anything we've made, nor use our Name or Assets to falsely represent yourself as a member of the Artix Entertainment staff.
