Nope! Single player games are still more fun when you have friends to talk with them about. Even if you don’t play games with others, it’s still enjoyable to have a group of people who understand when you go on a tangent about turnip prices going down or the crew ejecting you from the ship.
What games will be available to add to my profile?

We’ll have just about any video game you can think of and especially the most popular tabletop games at launch. We’ll be continuously adding more and taking member requests to add new ones. Don’t worry, your favorite games will be included!

On launch you'll be able to add 15, we'll be expanding the number to unlimited shortly after launch. We know us gamers have large game libraries :p

Our co-founders are Trust & Safety executives with nearly 20 years combined experience. We are passionate about online safety and building kind and positive communities. We’ll be incorporating innovative internal safety tools and in-app moderation features for members to tailor what they don’t want to see. Unlike platforms who let reports go into a black void, we’ll also address concerns and communicate on what’s happening with your reports.

Just some of the safety features we’ll employ:

-Age restrictions.
-Detections to prevent sexual and romantic advances.
-Educational messaging to change behavior.
-Positive reinforcement to reward positive behavior.
-And more.

We’ll be rolling out the full arsenal.

We strongly believe a gamer is anyone that likes playing video games or tabletop games. You don’t need to be skilled, you don’t need to play all the time, you don’t need to be competitive, or use certain equipment. If you enjoy playing games, you’re a gamer! Congratulations!
