Adding a Character to a Game

Adding a Character to a Game

There are 2 ways to add a character to a game.

Method 1 - Adding your own character to a game.

First, you must have Created a Character. Then, after you've created a game, you may navigate to the game's page by using the Games menu item in the top bar, and then selecting the game you'd like to add the character to. For this example, our game is "Example Game", and the character is "Example Character".

Near the bottom of the Game Details page, you'll see a section called "Add your own character". Simply select the character in question from the dropdown and click "Add". You can do this with as many characters as you want.

Note, you may only add a character to a single game. If you'd like to have a similar character in multiple games you should create a duplicate character with the same name.

Method 2 - Inviting players via email

This method does not require you to make a character first (though if you did, you are given the opportunity to select one). For this method, enter your email address in the "Invite a Player" box. This will send an email with a link to join the game.

You must use the same email address that you intend to use to sign in or the code will be returned as invalid. If your friends sign up with a different account, you'll need to resend the invite to that email address instead. (We are working to allow you to sign up with a different email than the invite).

Following the link in the email will take you to a screen to allow you to select a character to add to the game, or to create a new one if you do not have one. 

Follow the steps outlined in Creating a Character and at the end your new character will automatically be associated with a game.
