Brightful was created last year with one very clear mission in mind - to help bring people together in a time of uncertainty. It was not long before we discovered a big need for games that connect colleagues, friends and loved ones. We found real purpose in adding to our selection of games and improving our platform, because we knew it was helping to spark joy in a year when it was most needed.

It has been truly exciting to watch Brightful continue to grow in players, as it shows us that we are on the right track. Many features (and bug fixes!) are the direct result of your feedback. Even just by playing, hosting and sharing our games, you are helping us immensely, in learning how to improve our service. None of this amazing journey could have happened without you.

This is just the beginning. We have bigger and better things planned for Brightful’s development. More games, more content and more features - all designed to help bring you closer to those in your life. At Brightful we don’t believe in showing ads or selling your private data, and this will never change. To keep the good things flowing, we’re going to need your support. That’s why today we are announcing some important changes.

What is happening?

We are rolling out Premium and Professional paid plans for our games. This means there will be changes to our Starter (Free) users.

How does this affect me?

Brightful will remain free, but there will be some restrictions on the gaming experience. The level this change may affect you depends on how you use Brightful.

What are the changes to Free users?

Starter (Free) users will now have the following restrictions:

  • Maximum of 6 players in each gameroom
  • Each game's content library is limited to 20 questions

Current users will all receive a 1-month free upgrade to Premium as a thank you for your support.

I am a teacher or work in education. How will this affect me?

At Brightful we are committed to helping teachers and students in any way we can. That is why we are rolling out a special Educator tier price plan which includes more benefits for lower prices.

When will this change take place?

In the coming weeks. Exact date is to be confirmed. Please stay tuned for updates.

What are the prices and details of the paid plans?

$5/month when billed annually for Educator Premium.

$12.50/month when billed annually for Premium.
