Content guidelines

These are guidelines for creating videos or other derivative material involving Unreal Life.

Last updated June 4th, 2020

・​Video guidelines

These guidelines are about Let's Plays, streams, and other types of videos.

*The guidelines are subject to change without notice.

■Things you can do

As long as you follow these guidelines, feel free to stream or upload "Let's Play" videos of Unreal Life, and monetize these videos if you want to. I hope both you and your viewers will enjoy it!

Here are some logos, etc. to use for the thumbnails. Feel free to use them!

▼Thumbnail materials (images, logos)

■Things you should do

The more people watch Let's Plays of Unreal Life, the fewer are going to buy the game. Therefore, it would be appreciated if you included a link to Unreal Life's official site in the video or stream description. This can help people who liked the game find information, merchandise, etc. related to the franchise.

I hope both the game itself and any creative content involving it can thrive together!

▼Unreal Life official site URL

You can also use this link (a message to those who have watched videos about the game)

If possible, do not mute the game as you play it. The soundtrack includes a song with vocals, but you will not be copyright striked.

■Things you cannot do

The following are not permitted, and, if found, will result in a request to take your video down.

*If you find material in violation of these guidelines, reports would be much appreciated.

  • Illegal content

  • Content that infringes on the intellectual property of those involved in the creation of Unreal Life, or other individuals

  • Slander, explanation-only videos, text-only videos, videos involving mods or pirated copies of the game

  • Doing or saying things that try to prevent other people from creating their own Let's Plays of Unreal Life

  • Indecent content not included in the game

  • Content that violates the video platform guidelines

  • For console versions of the game, content that violates the console manufacturer's guidelines (external guidelines take priorities over Unreal Life's)


▼Example: Nintendo's video sharing guidelines

​*Be careful as Unreal Life for the Nintendo Switch may include content which is owned by Nintendo.

・Videos without commentary or that simply show the game (Nintendo Switch's share function aside)

■For a better playing experience

  • (On Nintendo Switch™) you can open the settings menu by pressing the "+" button on the title screen.

  • When streaming the game, I believe that the smooth font is easier to read than the pixel one.

  • (On Nintendo Switch™) you can also advance the dialogue with the analog stick.

  • Every time you examine an object or encounter certain events, the game is automatically saved. (However, in the Nintendo Switch™ version, there is a 30-second interval between autosaves.)

*If the game does not respond, please try to restart it and play from the last autosave or a save from the previous chapter.

If the game freezes while you are streaming, please refer to the bugfix report.

■Additional information (highlight to see)

  • The average time for Let's Players to finish the game is 8 hours.

  • -The game has 4 different endings.


・Company guidelines

We cannot respond to inquiries related to Nintendo's guidelines. Please contact their support centers.

They do NOT apply to companies and organizations.
