SAZ Statement on the Competition "Who's got game?" of

2016-09-16 10:14

The Game Designers Association (Spiele-Autoren-Zunft SAZ) represents as an Interest Group the rights of game designers.

Tenders and competitions enrich the field of activity of game designers. In the present case of marblesthebrainstore’s competition, the underlying terms do not comply with industry standards and are considered unacceptable by the SAZ. Therefore, we cannot recommend participating in this competition under such conditions.

Of course, it is up to a company to define the terms that are applicable to their competitions. However, we are convinced that these terms will also decide about the quality of entries a company may expect.

Game designers perform excellent creative work and want to have publishers as partners on eye level. Therefore, we call on marblesthebrainstore to rework the terms of their competition in this particular case.
