Gamestar Mechanic (“Gamestar” or the "Site") is an online service offered by E-Line Media (“we” or “us”) that helps users learn how to design video games. This Subscriber Agreement (the “Agreement”) describes the terms and conditions under which we make certain content available for purchase to individual customers.

The terms "Gamestar Mechanic", the "service", "us", or "we" refers to the owners of the website, E-Line Media, and its successors and assigns. The terms "you", and "subscriber" refer to a person who purchases Premium Gamestar Mechanic features or content.

This Agreement was last revised on June 12, 2018. By purchasing premium features or content, you signify your acceptance on this Subscriber Agreement in its entirety as was in effect at the time of your purchase.

This Agreement applies to the version of Gamestar Mechanic that is open to registration and use by members of the general public. We also make free and premium educational versions of Gamestar and Gamestar content available to certain organizations or groups under a separate Educational Licensing Agreement.

Premium Content and Features



Individuals may register Gamestar Mechanic user accounts for free, subject to the Gamestar Terms of Service. All accounts include complimentary access to a set of content and features that allow users to learn how to design games, make their own original games and participate in a community of game designers.

Users may also elect to purchase premium Gamestar Mechanic content and features, also known as "premium packs." Premium packs include additional play-infused learning experiences that teach key game design skills and unlock new game making components and capabilities (known as "Quests"), online and hybrid learning courses is game design ("courses") and content that users can use in their games such as sprites, music and backgrounds ("sprite packs").

Premium Pack Purchase Options



Premium packs may be purchased through the Gamestar Mechanic Store or at the time of registration at the prices listed. The prices for Premium Packs represent one-time fees, and during checkout your method of payment will be charged once for the price listed. You will never be charged an additional fee or subscription renewal charge for continued access to a premium pack you have purchased.

When you purchase a premium Quest or sprite pack, your one-time purchase grants you lifetime access to the features and content of that premium pack, meaning that you will continue to have access to those features and content for as long as the Gamestar Mechanic service is available and you continue to maintain the user account under which the premium pack was purchased, subject to the Terms of Service. Courses may also include access to premium Quests and sprite packs, in which case access to those Quests and sprite packs is also provided on a lifetime basis.

From time to time, we may choose to add additional features or content to premium packs you have already purchased on a complimentary basis (i.e. you will not be charged any additional fee). We will never remove features or content from a premium pack you already have access to. We may also change the contents of premium packs available for purchase in the store, remove premium packs from sale in the store or make new packs available for purchase, but this will not affect your access to or the contents of packs you have already purchased. We may also make additional features or content available to all users on a complimentary basis.

Payment Processing



We accept payment for premium packs using the following methods:

* Credit Cards.

You must be eighteen (18) years old or older to purchase a premium pack. By purchasing a premium pack, you represent that you are 18 years or older and that you are authorized to use the method of payment you have chosen to purchase the premium pack. An authorized person 18 years old or older may purchase a premium pack for a Gamestar Mechanic account used by a person under the age of 18.

At the time of purchase, we collect and store certain information concerning the method of payment in order to process the payment transaction. Please refer to our Privacy Policy to learn more about the information we collect and how we use it to process payment transaction.

Under certain circumstances, we may offer users the option to purchase a premium pack at the time they initially register their Gamestar Mechanic account. If you are under the age of thirteen (13) and wish to take advantage of this option, the premium pack must be paid for using a credit card belonging to your parent or guardian. By authorizing the use of their credit card in this manner, your parent or guardian approves your use of Gamestar Mechanic and indicates that they have read and consent to the Terms of Service on your behalf.

Users who have their accounts terminated due to violations of Gamestar’s Terms of Service are not entitled to a refund for premium packs already purchased.

Disputes and Reversals
