The number one request for TKO was, “I want to play my friends!” so we listened and made it happen.
This was an interesting challenge for 2 reasons, 1) We don’t have friends list on CN.com and 2) a majority of our users don’t even register, they play as guest. The answer was to make a link the player could send to friends and this link would match them. This way players don’t need to be logged in. We also used a code system so players could just tell their friend and code to enter on the cartoontko.com site.
We also added Finn from Adventure Time! We made sure to have Jake in there are much as possible since they are inseparable buddies.
More characters coming soon!
