Guilds API

Guilds

Having guilds in your game is a great way for players to interact with each other and build a sense of community. All of Kongregate's top performing games use guilds as a way to increase player engagement by adding guild-specific events and giving players meaningful advantages for contributing to the well being of their guild.

Overview

The guilds API allows games with guilds to give additional features to their users. These additional features include private forums and their own guild chat while users are playing on Kongregate.

Guild Chat

Guild chat is a great way for members to talk to each other while playing your game on the site. Guild chat will automatically launch for a user who is in a guild in your game, and will also be accessible when a user plays other games on Kongregate as well, so users can still chat with their guildmates even when not playing the game their guild is for.

Guild Forums

Guild members can use their guild-specific forums to coordinate events and have longer debates and conversations. Users that are denoted as Admins by the Guilds API are able to lock, sticky, edit, and hide forum posts in the guild forum.


Using the Guilds API

In dealing with guilds, there are two elements. The Guilds themselves, and the Characters, who are the players that populate the guilds.
