To make a game, do I need to have a VAT number?
Not necessarily. If you choose to self-publish, you do not need a VAT number as it is expected that you will declare copyright in order to recognise Royalties. However, if you choose the self-production route, after you have printed the number of copies desired, a VAT number will be required in order to sell your products on our e-commerence and/or to stipulate a distribution agreement.
Can I print a prototype with you?
Sure. Tambù also gives you the opportunity to print a single prototype copy at a low cost without ever having to compromise on material quality. You can also publish your game for free on our portal and take advantage of additional exclusive services available on the special course offered by the Tambù Author Program.
Can I use my own graphics?
Of course! Your project can be created using the graphics that you have designed and/or are already in your possession, provided that these are not covered by copyright or that you have the right to use them. If you don't have the right to use them, Tambù will help you to find the professional most suited to your needs. All the graphic designers and illustrators who work with us, besides being professional experts, are also passionate about the sector and will be able to create the best graphics for your project.
How much is the Tambù Author Program Service?
It costs nothing! The Tambù Author Program is a free service for authors who wish to be accompanied in the development and publicisation phases of their project that's still in the idea stage.
Contact us to find out what other benefits are available with this special, innovative service!
Will the Tambù Author Program service constrain me in anyway?
Absolutely not. The TAP is a non-binding service that was born with the intent to support the author during the initial stages of development and promotion of the game and to create a springboard for the project. Certainly, if you would like to and decide to continue with us for the creation of the game and its distribution, we will be happy to have you as part of the team and we will continue to support you during the self-publishing process or recommend the best services related to self-production.
Can a product in the idea phase be purchased?
A game in the idea phase, is a product that's still in the testing stage and therefore not ready for sale and can not be purchased. However, to be kept up to date on the stages of development of the project and to be notified when it will be available, you can subscribe to our Newsletter! By doing so, you will also be informed about all the events and trade fairs which we will be participating in and where you can find your favorite games :)
Are you a publishing company?
Tambù is not a publishing company, but a company that provides all the tools and services necessary for authors to create and publish their own projects.
Therefore, all the rights of games, illustrations and graphics made with and without Tambù and sold on our portal, will always belong soley to the authors. We are also collaborating with Italian and International publishers for those who request it.
Can I go to a publisher?
Sure. Tambù was born to to help you find the right path according to your needs, so if you think that is the publishing route, we will be happy to support and direct you to that effect.
