Recruit ALL the good developers. Muahahah.
I definitely overuse this meme.

Happy for you, jmtb02. :) I think Kongregate already has quite a few awesome developers, and you’ll be a great asset. (not just saying that because I love Epic Combo!… maybe)

Also, great job on this Kong, his games will be 37 times better with the Kong sponsor screen in the beginning as apposed to the AG one!

They are a pretty exceptional bribery tool. I once killed a man for a chocolate ch… nevermind.

Also, Kongbot should get his own game, and it should be an addictive multiplayer RPG. :O

Take that Armor Games! >:D


Tasteless joke on my part.

I only meant it as a joke and if that joke really did cause hurt feelings, then I’m honestly sorry and didn’t mean it like that. I apologize.

Nice to have a famous dev on Kong’s staff.

Does this mean John left AG? I didn’t think Kong wanted programmers, I thought they were more of an accumulator of good games. I’m guessing they’re paying more?

Kongregate has developers as well. In regards to the terms, that’s none of our business. :D

So does this mean more elephants? If yes, how many, in furlongs?

I don’t believe that…He can’t read!

Hiring John is our first experiment in dedicated internal game development since Kongai. All our other developers are working on website functionality, though schonstal makes games in his free time, and Anthony and Greg have collaborated with others to make games.

You may have noticed that the supply of great single-player games has been a little weaker in the last six months or so, which is part of the reason why mmo-type games have seemed more prominent. We think those games are great but single-player games of all genres are equally important in keeping variety and interest for everyone and the overall Kongregate ecosystem healthy. We’ve been brainstorming ways to increase the supply and we’re hoping developing some games ourselves will be at least a small help.

We’ve always thought John is one of the best game developers out there and overall a great guy, and made a job offer to him as far back as 2006. We’re thrilled that he was willing to make a move right at a time when we were thinking of getting more involved in game development. I’m not promising more hires are on the way, as we’re going to move forward cautiously as we learn what we’re doing, but we couldn’t start with anyone better.

Great news, I can’t wait to see all that comes from this.

Sounds awesome. More elephants on Kong! ヽ(°▽ °)ノ
Also excited about new Kongregate developed games besides Kongai.

I’m dissapointed.

Also Phoenix’s link isn’t working because you got his account name wrong.

Because trickyrodent doesn’t compete in the forum tournaments. :p
