Non-Disclosure Agreement. This is a binding contract between two parties (usually a developer and a publisher). The party asked to sign the NDA (usually the developer) is agreeing that they will not disclose any technical or creative information about a project. This would include openly discussing or writing about a game's plot, enemies, technical abilities, or any other host of private and confidential information about a project. Legal rammifications can ensue if the party signing the NDA violates the contract.


Non-player character. NPCs are characters that are controlled by the computer system and are generally governed by a certain amount of artificial intelligence. Enemies that are not controlled by another human player are called NPCs.
