Breakroom Tutorial
Breakroom's optional tutorial quest system is a fun way to introduce your users to the platform's many features (and let them earn Silver in the process!). Learn how to install the tutorial here.

Overview

The Breakroom Tutorial is still in beta, and is not available for most users.

The Breakroom Tutorial system comes pre-equipped with eight different "quests" designed to teach users how to use Breakroom's basic features. Installing the tutorial system in your region will add a Tutorials button to the Start Here UI. Clicking this button will teleport users to the tutorial voice zone and expand the tutorial quest panel.

Completing quests will reward users in Silver currency. Silver can be used to purchase items within the Breakroom Shop. This is a great way to welcome new users, get them acquainted with the Breakroom platform, and build excitement over the ability to customize their avatars.
