Free video game EULA
This free end user licence agreement (EULA) has been designed for use in relation to stand-alone video games that do not include an online component.
The EULA may be used in one of three ways: as a shrink-wrap licence on physical copies of the game; as a click-wrap licence to be accepted on game installation; or as a web-wrap licence to be accepted before the download of the game to the user's device.
A detailed licensing clause is included in the EULA. The default licence text is relatively strict, but this can easily be edited to meet your requirements.
Most computer games are nowadays distributed digitally, and the EULA includes a set of clauses intended to clarify the relationship between the EULA and the terms and conditions of the relevant distribution platform. You should read the distribution platform terms and conditions before reviewing these clauses.
The EULA does not include any clauses charges/pricing or distance selling cancellation rights. In many cases, charges and cancellation will be dealt with by the distribution platform terms and conditions. If, however, you require such clauses in your EULA, see the standard and premium versions of this EULA.Ask about this document
