Topic: Kongregate / On vacation (without connectivity) for ~2 weeks - how do I get the shiny kongpanions?

Hrm…that’s a bummer. Maybe check with some real life friends/family who can log in for you and snag the badges?

Maybe you could email Kong support and see if they have any recommendations?

**Not sure what the ToS says about that, but I doubt the higher ups would enforce that.

Much of the recent slowness is Greg being unable to figure out how to badge Cavarneer 2 (and finally giving up on it).

Current gap seems to be nobody forcing him to choose a next game to badge. Also possibly Christmas.

Poor Caravaneer 2.

Topic: Kongregate / Why isn't Kongregate a Curator on Steam?

I’ve also wondered that too. I wondered if it had to do with developers abandoning Kong and moving over to Steam?

A couple other developers/franchises who are on Steam:

Nerdook is also making games for Steam. He made a version of Vertical Drop Heroes (he also made a Steam game called Reverse Crawl.)

Rebuild 3 is also on Steam (the two earlier games are on Steam).

Topic: Kongregate / Losing in a virtual casino isn’t a real-world problem

That’s a pretty interesting suit (the article links to the pdf of the actual suit). I imagine that the attorney for the plaintiff will appeal (Interestingly enough, the lead plaintiff appears to only have lost about $100 – I know people on Kong who have literally spent $1000s a month).

My favorite line from the suit, “Since early 2014, Machine Zone has generated over $600 million in revenue,”

People complain about the rise of microtransactions in games, but companies make so much money off of these games and the production costs for these games are so much less than a triple A title.

Those are some good choices…but I have to ask:

Who the heck picked Jurassic Park (SNES)? That’s…an odd choice.

two things I hope to see… 1) pvp with AI instead (or in addition of with other players). 2) pvp events.. right now it is just 10 minutes a day of doing adventure quest and claiming daily reward.

I think an asynchronic pvp would be nice in the game. I’m not sure how hard that would be to program though

Topic: General Gaming / Spellstone or Heartstone?

Of course the Kong admins love Spellstone. Any game where the top players have to spend $1000s+ every month is great!

That being said, it is a fun game, but I refuse to play any more of this developer’s games.

Topic: Heroes Empire: TCG / Short guide to hard adventures.

I agree. On Col hard first round, pay particular attention to the quality of your units. For example, a orange or purple gladiator can fully upgraded first round while a blue can’t.

Topic: Heroes Empire: TCG / F2P Look Here Be4 You Decide To Play Long-Term

Interesting. I’m not sure that you listed all the ways to earn money. You forgot a couple ways to make gold. For example, when I play a Hard Adventure, I’m guaranteed a card at the end, and I’ll probably pick up a couple along the way. Overall, by my tracking, I’ve earned more gold than lost at Adventure. Now, this requires figuring out the mechanics, but it wasn’t all that bad.

Topic: General Gaming / Kong vs Steam

Originally posted by Holy2334:

So I’ve noticed a general trend on steam lately that most of the popular flash games that we see on Kong are on steam now. The big differences is that the majority of the flash games that have moved on to steam you have to pay for unlike here where its free. However the steam version generally has more content in it than its flash counter part. Some examples are…

  • EBF4
  • Bloons TD 5
  • Shellshock Live
  • Creeper World 3 Arc Elemental
  • Doodle God
  • No Time To Explain.
  • Nerdook’s reverse dungeon game.
  • Adventure Capitalist and Clicker Heroes (both are free on steam).

So which do you prefer? A better quality game that you have to pay for, or a the free flash counterpart that you know and love? Which one do you think is better? If you are a dev that has made a steam version of their flash game, what was the reason & which one do you prefer? Which flash game would you like to see a steam version of if any? Lots of stuffs to think about :o

I’ve played a couple of these on both Steam and Kong.

Creeper World III: Way better on Steam. So many maps!
EBF4: I’m glad I got it on Steam, but the main difference is pretty small between the two versions.
Reverse Dungeon: This is a normal ole Nerdook game. Pretty fun for a couple hours. If it was posted on Kong, it would’ve fit right in with his other games. My guess is Steam is more profitable for him.

I haven’t played it but Rebuild 3 is on Steam too. Anyone have any thoughts on that one?

I’d love to see Mardek series (completed!) on Steam, but I know that isn’t going to happen since the Dev said he’s rebooting the series.

" Fight AI PvP Decks, we want to implement a new AI mode in a future patch, however the game will be live on mobiles (Android & iOS) in 10 days approx, so PvP queues should be going much faster."

Hooray! Will there be a way to link my Kong account and my phone?

Topic: Heroes Empire: TCG / Suggestions

You don’t want to up it too high or people will use it to farm (start pvp, surrender, profit).

I’d love to see cards that drop off of pvp wins or by having a certain score or something. Right now the only reason to do pvp is for the daily quests and for bragging rights.
