Integrating your virtual goods game into Kongregate is a straightforward process that can be done in a few days by an experienced engineer.
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.
There are three primary APIs that our games make use of.
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.
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.
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.
