As a System Administrator, you have the power to add, edit, or remove game shells. A game shell is a game that does not yet have content in it and hasn’t been made “live.” Every game starts out as an empty shell. Once a Game Author populates the shell and converts it to online status, it becomes a game. As a System Admin, consult with the intended Game Author to determine if the game shell should be for a Quest, Legend, or Drive game.
Follow these steps to add, edit, or remove game shells.
