This Video Game license is valid for integrating and embedding ONE single weight OR ONE
complete family of The Northern Block fonts in ONE (1) Video game product at a time, and is valid
for the following gaming systems: (Xbox, PS3, PSP, Wii, PC & MAC)
In order to complete your purchase, you must agree to the following rules of usage. By downloading,
purchasing, installing or embedding The Northern Block fonts for any Video Game use, you signify
your acceptance of this license agreement, and in return for a license to use The Northern Block fonts for any Video Gaming scenario, you wholly agree to the following terms and conditions:
1. Grant of License and Restrictions
The Northern Block grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to (i) integrate, combine, embed or incorporate ONE single weight OR complete family of The Northern Block fonts within your Video Game scenario, (ii) reproduce, distribute and sub-license your Video Game scenario containing ONE single weight OR complete family of The Northern Block fonts; and (iii) install and use ONE single weight OR complete family of The Northern Block fonts for your use in connection with the creation and testing of your Video Game scenario. You are not allowed to use The Northern Block fonts for more than one Video Game scenario without purchasing an additional Video Game license from The Northern Block. You are not allowed to re-sell or give the font to any third party separate from your Video Game scenario. A " Video Game scenario" is defined for these purposes as any single scenario that is applicable to the items listed above in the “Approved Gaming Systems” section.
2. Acceptable Uses
You may use ONE single weight OR ONE complete family of The Northern Block fonts within ONE Video
Game scenario only. For instance, you can embed ONE single weight font OR ONE complete family of
The Northern Block fonts in ONE Video Game Application for multiple gaming platforms from the approved list above. As long as the Video Game Application is identical on the multiple gaming platforms, you only need one Video Game Application license to develop and release the Video Game Application. However, if you release "Awesome Game" and then develop a sequel called "Awesome Game 2" that also includes the same font, you must purchase an additional Video Game Application license. Essentially each time the font leaves your control and is distributed in a new Video Game scenario, you must purchase an additional Video Game license.
3. Unacceptable Uses
Users of the Video Game Application scenario cannot edit or create a new document using The Northern Block font(s). You must ensure that The Northern Block font(s) cannot be fully or partially extracted for any use. You must embed The Northern Block font(s) within a secure format that permits only the viewing and/or printing (and not the editing, altering, enhancing, or modifying) of The Northern Block font(s).
You can keep backups of The Northern Block font(s) in the cloud, locally on a desktop, laptop or mobile
device, or on a studio server, ONLY IF you, as the single licensee of The Northern Block font(s) is the only person who maintains the backup. It cannot be managed by numerous users.
You may import characters from the font as graphical objects into a drawing program and modify such graphical objects. You may not modify, adapt, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or create derivative works based on the licensed font itself without The Northern Block's prior written consent.
All rights and licenses not expressly granted to you are reserved by The Northern Block. Title to; copyright to and full ownership of The Northern Block fonts.
