Topic: General Gaming / Pyro: The rise of a psychotic killer.

Pyro was a normal person until one day while at his job cleaning up Haz waste an explosion occurred, the heat melted the suit to his skin making it so he’d never take it off again. Driven mad by this he became obsessed with fire to the point of ruining his life, he lost his wife after she realized he was not the same man she married anymore, he was something dark and twisted now. Unable to hold a job due to his violent tendencies he was left homeless until he was found by Saxton Hale one day while hunting a herd of Deer with a flamethrower, after the the man managed to scratch Saxton on the cheek with his ax during the ensuing fight Saxton acknowledged the man as a true man among men and invited him to join him at his company where he would be able to carry out his dark and twisted desires. Over time the man earned the name Pyro as well as the fear of not only his enemies but his colleagues as well.

Topic: Kongregate / when will kong raise level limit

I don’t like how admin ignore these kinds of threads. I mean yeah, they pop up all the time, but they should care a little more about making sure people feel like they are being heard.

Topic: Kongregate / Suggestions

I would like to be able to set my profile so that there isn’t an activity feed or that at least it isn’t so big. The new profile setup is horrid in my opinion and I’m sure I’m not the only one who thinks so (though I may not be in the majority). I’d like to be able to choose to display my profile in the old layout under the options in the “edit profile” menu area.

Would this be a possibility?

(Feedback on this from an admin would be greatly appreciated.)

When looking at my past comments the first page is just fine but when I try viewing the second page I get this.

The same goes for every page after the first.

I also get an error message when trying to remove friends.

Speaking of bugging the admin, are we still harassing Jim about his magic pee?

Topic: Kongregate / Kongregate Admin Harlem Shake

I think the Kongregate should make a Harlem Shake video to help promote the side on Youtube.

And I’m totally not just suggesting this because I want to see Jonathan dancing silly…

Topic: General Gaming / What is your favorite iPhone/iPad/iTouch Game?

Though it’s only free for today my favorite free game would have to be Doodle Devil. But as of games that are always free I would have to pick Pocket Frogs or God Finger. My favorite paid game would be Hookchamp.

Topic: General Gaming / Kong lacks many standard multiplayer games/clones.

That’s true, but shouldn’t it be easier if it’s a cookie cutter clone of a popular game?

I don’t really know much about development of games, that’s why I’m asking, not to be a smartass.

Topic: General Gaming / Kong lacks many standard multiplayer games/clones.

I noticed that Kong lacks the standard online multiplayer flash games such as clones of word zap, bookworm, Uno, Scrabble, Pool, chess, checkers, and many more.
Now, there may be a few clones of these games on here, I’ve seen one or two, but they are very terribly done or not multiplayer. Why is it that nobody has taken advantage of this big gap in the game selection on Kong? Seems like it would be a good opportunity for a flash developer.

Topic: Kongregate / Dear Game Developers

“I can think of at least three places I would go before Kongregate.”
That in itself is a problem.



I have played both of the two main multiplayer chess games on Kongregate and they are both awful.


You obviously came into this thread having already made your mind up about the topic and left no room for open mindedness. And just so you know there are several very popular match three games that are popular, such as Biogems , King’s Guard and Elements of Arkandia

Topic: Kongregate / Dear Game Developers

Dear developers, It has come to my attention that there is a complete lack of well made, well executed and feature rich multiplayer chess games. I think this is a niche that would be very easy to fill and is a great opportunity to create a very popular game with relatively little effort on your part. Just thought you should know.




Options which are needed to make a truly great online chess game:

  • A nice selection of different time options.

  • A variety of chess sets.

  • At least 1 Chess engine for single player mode. I recommend that you have many. There are plenty of open source chess engines out there.

  • Kongregate API

  • Have it display you using your Kongregate name instead of something like “guest ###” or something of that nature

  • Allow for the saving of games against Chess engines.

  • Maybe a tutorial for newer players. It doesn’t have to be super in depth but just the basics. Adding plenty of in depth would not hurt anything but is not a necessity.




    You don’t have to know jack crap about chess to make this either. Just go for it and if you need help with anything as far as how chess works and all that stuff Just ask the community for feedback and help. If you needed it I can even set you up with your own private forums and get together a beta testing team. Or you could put it up for beta testing for Kong+ users.


    If you want a better idea of what a lot of people look for in a chess game check out the ChessMaster Series.
    Now, I’m not saying you have to recreate a chess game of that magnitude, But it should provide you with a good ideas for features, options and design. And no, i’m not asking for 3d chess. 2D is just fine.

Topic: General Gaming / Xbox 360 or PS3?

The Xbox360 was by far the best when it came to game library but now that both the Xbox360 and PS3 have been out for quiet a while now the PS3 has started to really gain momentum and I think in the end it will be more successful in total sales and game library. Not to mention the PS3 is quiet a bit more powerful and has Blue-ray, which has become the standard.

It’s a common practice that websites use shortened URLs for sharing links on social networks, since most of them have a word limit per post. It’s just something like “youtu.be” for youtube.com, which is official.

So why is Kongregate using a third party url shortener/tracker instead of doing it like youtube did with youtu.be?
And no, Youtu.be is not really hosted by a third party since the server it is hosted on is owned by Google.

Topic: Kongregate / Kon.gg?

It isn’t used for hosting anything from what I can tell. It is only used to link to Kongregate pages by Kongregate on social networks. Seems a bit fishy to me.

It’s a Bitly link. So you use it to track who follows the link.
Should have figured that out a bit quicker but… nou

Topic: Kongregate / Kon.gg?

What is up with this url thing you are using for links to games on Kongregate on places like twitter and Facebook? Why not just link straight to the page? And why is it on a completely different server located in Englewood?
