NOTE: Multiplayer, in it's current state, has little to do with the rest of the project. Right now, we're not entirely happy with it. In the future, it will be adjusted to align more closely with the rest of the project.


To connect to the server, you must log in with a Discord account. You aren't required to join our Discord server though.
You can only connect with the latest stable or prerelease build of the game.

You can connect to the server with the /connect command.
You can disconnect from the server with the /disconnect command.
More information on how to use commands may be found here.

Only the most recent Giftscop build may connect to multiplayer. The most recent build may be found here.
There are not multiple servers.


When you play on our multiplayer server, you must follow the rules, otherwise you will be risking a permanent ban.

The multiplayer server operates under rules which are similar to those in our Discord server. The multiplayer rules are as follows:

  1. Be respectful; Don't be rude, mean, exclusionary, or discriminatory.
    • Discrimination towards things such as race, gender (+identities), sexuality, etc. is NOT tolerated.
    • Slurs are NOT tolerated (from anyone, no exceptions).
    • Be patient if the server is full: Don't ask people to leave in order to make room.
  2. Keep discussion appropriate; No adult content, inflammatory/controversial chatting or advertising.
    • NSFW is NOT allowed (sexual content, heavy gore) - you will be banned. Includes custom spritesheets.
    • Do not pressure people into sharing personal information.
  3. No impersonation; Do not pretend to be anyone else.
  4. No spamming; Keep things in single messages within chat, don't be bothersome, don't spam needles piano inputs.
  5. No brigading; Do not target people, groups, etc. or bring drama into Multiplayer.
  6. Follow the Discord ToS; Since Multiplayer requires a Discord account, we expect you to follow its Terms of Service.
    • A noteworthy detail about Discord's ToS is that users must be at least 13 years of age.
    • Discord requires server operators to enforce this aggressively for legal reasons -- accounts will be banned even for joking about being underage.
  7. No advertising; Do not use multiplayer to direct people to join a separate Discord server, or anything similar.

Moderators can kick or ban players from multiplayer who violate these rules.
If you see a problem in multiplayer, you can join our Discord server to report it.
