Welcome to the Publisher Pool!

The Publisher Pool was a set of codes for free copies of Affinity Publisher. These were available for indie analog* game designers who'd have trouble affording the app, to help make layout design more accessible. Applications are now closed! All 179 codes have been distributed.

A pair of rolling dice.

*'analog' includes tabletop role-playing games (TRPGs), live-action role-playing games (LARPs), board or card games, supplements for these game types, or any other games played physically for which you need to lay out text and images in documents.

The Pool was mostly funded with the proceeds of the Layout Level-up Bundle, hosted by Speak the Sky, who also maintained the Pool. Click the button to go to a random contributor's storefront, or see the full list below.
