If you're playing PuzzleScript games hosted on

Puzzlescript games accesed at urls like "" are stored on GitHub as gists and fetched from there with their Developer API. Their privacy policy is here.

Why do I need to store things there?

I need to store games somewhere - I think the sharing functionality is really important for puzzlescript, and makes making + sharing games really easy. And GitHub take care of moderation/spam filtering, which otherwise could cause a lot of stress.

If you don't want to use the online-sharing facilities you can still save/load game locally, and can still export standalone html files.

If you're creating PuzzleScript games:

Puzzlescript can save things to your browser's local cache - it's just used for loading/saving files in the file save dropdown.

To create a shareable link to your game on, you need to authorize with your GitHub account. Then, when you hit share in future, a publicly-accessible copy of your game is uploaded to a gist in your account.
