Getting Started

The Game Crafter makes it easy for you to sell your game online right after you create it.

NOTE: You should listen to our special podcast for new users. It answers all the questions people normally have when getting started. In addition, one of our users has created an excellent FAQ for beginners.

Getting started takes three simple steps:

Step 1: Create

First you must create your game! We've made this as easy as can be.  Once you have your game idea, you can download our free templates to start creating cards and game boards. Be sure to read our designer tips before you start creating your artwork! If you get stuck, get help from our community of experts in chat or the forums.

Step 2: Upload

After you've created your game components, you can upload your game using our simple wizard-based interface. We even provide you with all the pawns, dice, play money, and other game pieces you need to flesh out your game!

Step 3: Print

Congratulations! You have built your game in our game editor and now you can buy as many copies as you'd like. By default, all games are private and the public cannot see or buy your game. If you want to allow friends and family to buy your game, you can edit your settings and allow people to view and buy your game if they know the private URL of your game. 

Step 4: Sell (optional)

After uploading your game, our site will tell you exactly how much it costs to manufacture the game. You can buy copies at that price, but you can also set a price that visitors will pay. We split the profit of each sale 70/30 (you get 70%), and you are compensated through royalty payments. If you want to sell your game to the public then you can Publish your game and sell them to a worldwide audience through our online shop.
