Hey Ludum Dare…ers? Dare-ies? Ah, DEAR PEOPLE OF LUDUM DARE,
Game Jolt has just released their long-time-in-beta Game Achievements API and libraries. They want the members to spread the news, and I thought I’d be the first to bring it the Ludum Dare community.
It works on most platforms (Game Maker, Construct, Unity) as well as with most languages (C++, Java, AS3). If your platform is not in the list on their landing page though, their community is really nice and they can probably help you out with making one – just have to ask on the forums. The system is stable, secure and scalable; a newly popular game – Kayin’s sequel to I Wanna Be The Guy: Gaiden – was released recently using their system. Game Jolt supports high scores for both users and guests, trophies and even data storage (which is only limited by your imagination!).
Here’s some links:
