Topic: Kongregate / Unity Contest Announcement Delayed! New Date: March 8

I appreciate finally getting and update, but I feel like this is a small bandaid on a big wound. I never check the forums here (just not much of a forum-goer), I was directed here by a friend. If I hadn’t been so fortunate, I would have no idea what was going on with this.

The whole contest has been weirdly low-key. Apart from the initial announcement on the front page when the contest started, it’s been almost invisible. There was no mention of it when the entrance closed and people were supposed to vote on games. There hadn’t been any mention at all of this delay to the judging, and certainly not in a prominent location.

I don’t want to sound like a grouse, but a contest like this is a chance for everyone to win, by drawing attention to Unity, to the developers, and to give Kong a new avenue of appeal for players. But by keeping it so low key like this, no one is really benefitting. It seems strange compared to the other contests I’ve participated in, both as a developer and a player.

Topic: Game Programming / Viewing recorded statistics?

Well, thanks for the firm answer. :) It just seems a bit weird that we feed information into their system and don’t get anything back from it. What it I’d like to know how many people are beating level three, and use it to make my game better?

Well, I guess I’ll have to go with a third-party stats system after all.

Topic: Game Programming / Viewing recorded statistics?

No, sorry, I don’t mean the high scores. I would assume that when my game records a stat to Kongregate, that I can view that stat somewhere. Or else what’s the point? Just hoping and wishing that they come along and attach a badge to it?

Okay, so I’ve got my game submitting stats now (I think…) Now where the heck can I view these on the site?
