Game Controls & Podium improvements

Game controls

The game controls will now affect player devices as well. E.g. if you turn off the player names, they will also turn off on the player's game board and leaderboard screens.

Right now the music only works on the game host device - let us know in the feedback below if you'd like the music to work on player devices as well.

Podium improvements

We've also added confetti to the podium to make it more celebratory and changed it to dark theme. Let us know what you think!

Smarter credits usage

We've changed the way credits are used to ensure each one is used with a real game play. Now a credit will only be used when the game has at least 5 players in and has been running for at least 5 minutes.

If this criteria is met, the system determines this is likely to be a real game play and will deduct one credit.

This means we've removed the single player option and made it a simple "Go!" button on the launch screen.

Hopefully this makes the experience simpler to use ✨

Never lose your work again

Autosave is finally here! Now you can build your game without having to worry about saving continuously.

If you leave the page before explicitly pressing the "Finish" button (renamed from "Save"), your unfinished game will be available in your drafts.

Any draft games you have will appear when you navigate to the game builder to create a new game, where you can click on a draft to load it in and continue working on it. You can also delete drafts by clicking on the red trash icon.

The save status of your game is shown at the top above the tabs:
