What Is The DCC Third-Party Publishing License?

Did you know that Goodman Games allows publishers to produce their own material that is fully compatible with Dungeon Crawl Classics or Mutant Crawl Classics? It’s true! We offer a formal license and an official logo to attach to your product to show that it is something that will work with our games—and we charge a fair price for it, too. Free.

That’s right! The DCC/MCC license is totally free and at no expense to the publisher!

The most important criteria for obtaining the license is simply that we believe you are producing quality material of interest to our fans. The goal of this is to foster creativity and ensure DCC/MCC fans have a great source of constantly evolving new options for their games. We believe the game is what YOU want it to be, and we “put our money where our mouth is” in that regard by offering this free license.

On top of that, in order to subsidize the process, we purchase hard copies of the finished product direct from the publishers so that we can offer them for sale on our website. One type of publication that is near and dear to our hearts are those made by the DIY creators out there who want to create zines and other low-budget books so they can share their ideas and vision. We love to see the amazing creativity of our fans on display, no matter the cost that goes into the finished product. We want your games to come alive!

As a reminder, Kickstarter will soon be launching ZineQuest 2020. We detailed this project in an earlier post, but as a reminder, this is a special promotion from Kickstarter for the month of February encouraging the production of zine-sized projects. We encourage you to utilize it to launch a Kickstarter for YOUR third-party publishing idea!

If you are a creator/publisher who wants to know more about our third-party license, simply email us at info@goodman-games.com. We’re happy to provide a copy of the license and hear your thoughts on what you would like to publish! This is your chance to get your dream book published and become a contributing part of the DCC/MCC community!
