How can I upload my game onto Kongregate?
To upload your game onto Kongregate, simply go to the upload page and follow the instructions.
What format of games can I upload?
We support Flash (swf) files, and Unity game files. We do not have any plans to support executables (exe).
Additionally, games have a maximum file size of 20MB and a maximum width of 800 pixels. There’s not a hard height limit but please keep it reasonable to make sure your game is still playable.
What are the guidelines for uploaded content?
First, it must be a game. Kongregate does not allow Flash movies, regardless of how great they might be. There has to be some level of interaction with the player.
Although we’re still in the process of establishing specific guidelines for acceptable content, obscene, pornographic, and hateful material are not allowed and never will be.
Most importantly, uploaded games (including all components of games, such as audio) must be your original work or work you have permission to upload from the owner. Kongregate has absolutely no tolerance for uploading stolen content. Violators of this policy will automatically receive a one-week ban without warning on the first offense, and a permanent ban on the second.
Once I’ve uploaded a game, how can I edit the information associated with that game?
Inside your profile page, you’ll find a list of the games you’ve uploaded beneath your profile information. Clicking the “manage my games” link will bring you to a separate page in which you can edit information for games you’ve uploaded. While you won’t be able to change the title of your game (that title is, after all, part of the game’s URL) or delete your game entirely, you can update anything else, including the description, instructions, tags, etc. You can also upload a new version of the game, or a new icon.
Because Kongregate links to each game, we don’t allow removing games through user profiles (broken links make us sad). If you’d like us to remove your game manually, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What can cause my game to be hidden from the site or deleted entirely?
Games that are deemed obscene, hateful, pornographic, stolen (you must be the creator or one of the creators to upload a game) or not even games will be deleted from the site, and it’s very likely that the uploader will be banned permanently.
Additionally, if games receive an overall rating of 2.0 or less after a certain number of ratings, they will be “hidden” on the site. When a game is hidden, it will not appear in any of the lists (such as latest games or highest rated games). Hidden games are still on the site, however, and they can be reached manually by going directly to the URL, running a search for them, or following a link through someone’s profile (as either a favorite or as an uploaded game in the developer’s profile). Games also need a minimum rating of 3.5 to show up at all in the “highest rated” games list or on the front page under a specific category.
I just uploaded my game and the rating is “under judgment”. What does that mean?
When a new game is uploaded its rating is not displayed until it has a minimum number of ratings. This ensures that the early raters make an independent decision.
