DGC players are some of the most dedicated, emotionally invested players in any virtual world. You now have the opportunity to create parts of our world by designing new in-game items.
Players can download sample geometry, learn how virtual items are constructed, and design items. You can try your hand at writing a creative name, item description, and rationale for how it fits into the ongoing narrative storyline.
Games with announced support for Player Studio include:
Selected items will be offered for sale in the DGC Marketplace alongside items created by staff artists, priced in DGC's Daybreak Cash virtual currency. Revenue from the sale of these items will be shared back with the creative player.

Payments are calculated based on the money DGC receives from the sales of Daybreak Cash, when that Daybreak Cash is used to buy your Player Studio items in the marketplace. When Daybreak Cash is sold, there may be fees and taxes that DGC must pay, and those fees and taxes are deducted. Also, some Daybreak Cash is given away for promotional purposes, and because DGC does not receive any money when it gives Daybreak Cash away, those amounts are also deducted. Here are some hypothetical examples – please note that the tax rates and other deductions are for example only and are not based on real life numbers:
Player A buys $10 of Daybreak Cash (1,000 SC) from DGC. DGC pays $1 in sales tax on that amount, so after paying the taxes DGC will have $9 for that Daybreak Cash. Player A then buys your Player Studio item for 1,000 Daybreak Cash. Assuming no other applicable deductions, the payment to you will be $9 x 40% = $3.60.
Player A buys $10 of Daybreak Cash (1,000 SC) through a digital distribution partner and then buys your Player Studio item for 1,000 SC. The digital distribution partner collects the money and pays DGC 85% of that amount, so DGC gets $8.50 and the partner keeps $1.50. Assuming no other applicable deductions, the payment to you will be $8.50 x 40% = $3.40.
Player A buys $10 of Daybreak Cash (1,000 SC) from DGC. Player A also has an additional 500 SC that DGC gave away for free. Player A then buys your Player Studio item for 1,500 SC. DGC received a total $10 for that SC, so assuming no other applicable deductions the payment to you will be $10 x 40% = $4.00.
Player A buys $10 of Daybreak Cash (1,000 SC) from DGC using a credit card. DGC pays a 50 cent processing fee for that payment. Player A then buys your Player Studio item for 1,000 SC. DGC received a total $9.50 for that SC, so assuming no other applicable deductions the payment to you will be $9.50 x 40% = $3.80.
