Private games are now in beta

Quite a few people asked for private games in the recent survey, so I’ve worked hard this weekend and private games are now available. Well, technically they’re in beta which means it’s a brand new feature which might have bugs which need ironing out.

Making your game a private game

Making your game private means:

  • All posts are private – They can only be seen by logged-in members
  • All character profiles are private – They can only be seen by logged-in members
  • Pending members can’t see any characters or posts until they’re approved
  • Private games still show on the homepage and in the search – Or nobody would ever find them to join and everybody would love to play with games!

How to make your game private

This is a feature only for people who’ve donated.

  1. You need to have created a game already
  2. Go to the donations page and select the “Make your game private” perk
  3. During the donation you’ll be asked which game you want to make private
  4. Because this is a new feature there’s a manual step involved. Behind the scenes I’ll make your game private asap & email you when it’s done.
