DTP games are created by game developers and designers using a personal computer and printer to manufacture the final product.

The advent and spread of these techologies has opened the door to many game designers and developers who would probably not think to have thier crations spread beyond a small circle of friends. Where once a physical boundry existed between the games creator and possible players there is now an open distribution channel via DTP and the Net.

Often these are freeware or shareware products. Many of these games are distributed in PDF or HTML format alowing the players to do the actual production themselves. Groups like the Microgame Design Group have sprung up to help organize budding game makers, get them exposure in the gaming community, and possibly move them on to commerical ventures.
