Kongregate API Integrations

APIs improve experience & payouts

API integration enables your game to report any score or statistic you can dream up to our leaderboards, and is an integral component to the greater Kongregate experience. API inclusion will also get your game a 10% payout bonus and qualify it to be included in our cash developer contests.

Getting Started

In order to get started, please continue on to the Kongregate API Primer to quickly get up to speed on implementing the API. These documents contain very helpful information, and also explain some conventions that will be used in the rest of the documentation.

Web Service APIs

Kongregate also offers some web services to make it easier to integrate with your existing back end. You can use these services for authentication, microtransactions, user information, and querying about badges. Here is a link to the documentation. We also recommend you read the integration guide if you have a game with an existing back-end and you want to integrate with Kongregate via our web services.

Helpful Tips & Tricks

Extensive documentation and answers to frequently asked questions can be found in our developer forums. You should also be sure to read through Greg's tips for optimal implementation regarding challenges and badges.
