Does Kongregate provide some sort of access to their game database?

Let’s say I’d be interested in the top 20 highest rated games in a year. In SQL that would be a no-brainer but that would require you to connect to a database with the necessary information.

Badge Master knows all badges. This means it has information which is not directly related to the user. Makes me hope that there is a way to mess with other data too.

Take a look at the requests it performs:
http://api.kongregate.com/badges.json

http://developers.kongregate.com/docs/rest/badges

I don’t think kongregate publishes a list of their best games for someone to display and use them elsewhere.

Mhhm… not what I was hoping for but it explains how Badge Master works. Guess there are no shortcuts with this problem. Thanks.
