Frequently Asked QuestionsCommon questions our customers ask
How does the free plan differ from the paid plans?
Our free plan lets you publish Flash games, with Stencyl branding displayed pre-game as a splash screen. It does not let you publish to Desktop, iOS or Android.
Is there a free trial for paid features?
Our free plan lets you test your game on all of our paid target platforms (iOS, Android, Desktop), so you can evaluate this functionality before buying.
Why should I subscribe today rather than waiting until I publish my game?
Subscribing today gives you access to our latest, customer-only releases, granting you the latest fixes and functionality for your games. You also gain access to our customer-only forums.
What types of payment do you accept?
Credit Cards and Paypal. Contact us if you are unable to pay using these methods.
Are there any discounts for students and teachers?
May I use Stencyl on multiple computers?
You can install and use Stencyl on any computers you own. You may share a Studio (not Indie) license with one other person, as long as you *both* publish from the same Apple Store/Google Play account. If you use separate accounts, you must buy licenses for each person.
Are there any royalties?
No, we don't collect any royalties on games, nor do we claim any ownership over them. You keep 100% of your games' profits.

Do my games stop working if I let my subscription expire?
