Integrating your virtual goods game into Kongregate is a straightforward process that can be done in a few days by an experienced engineer.
There are three primary APIs that our games make use of.
Authentication: If your game uses server-side game accounts, this is a required API (we do not allow external login/registration systems). Giving users a single-sign-on experience reduces registration friction, increasing the number of accounts in the game. We have a simple API that allows you to validate a logged-in Kongregate user via a server-side call and get them into your game entirely behind the scenes.
Virtual Goods: If your game supports in-app purchases, this API is required. It will enable you to accept Kongregate’s currency, kreds, as payment within your game. Any non-kreds payment methods will need to be removed.
Payment-Enabled Game Approval
There are some special permissions that have to be set for payment-enabled games and we screen these games to maintain a quality experience. Please email [email protected] before going through the integration process to request permission to publish the game if you are using our virtual goods API.
Statistics: This is a very simple API that allows you to submit progress and high scores of players in the game. In addition to on-site leaderboards, this will enable us to put achievements on your game and feature it heavily if it gets a high-enough rating on the site.
