Terms, Conditions and Policies
Okay, this may not be the most interesting document to read but we would like to ask you to read them carefully as it is very important for Boundless and you as a user.
Boundless is still in development so there may be some times where it temporarily stops working. However, the upside is that as we are allowing you to play the game whilst it is being developed, there will be opportunities to create and influence the game content to help shape the future of Boundless.
To make sure we all work together effectively and harmoniously to create the best gaming experience for Boundless, we need to go through this legal stuff to set some rules.
Unfortunately, there is a bit of reading as it is important to protect users of Boundless and make sure we can continue developing the game.
