Kongregate allows self publishing as of last night

That's right, as of last night you can just self publish iFrame based games on Kongregate! No longer approval required from them.

This is great news, I think it's the first "big" portal that allows this.

Good luck guys!

Awesome! Now all they need to do is host them for you ;)

You can host on dropbox for free until you hit some bandwidth limit (which if you do, I think you can afford to pay for a host or to upgrade the dropbox package).

I think the next thing is for mochi ads to get HTML5 support, I asked them and they said they only do Flash. Kongregate apparently only allows mochi ads or something like that. And of course for more portals to support html5. And of course an fgl equivalent (or official fgl support for html5).

Still I think it's a good first step, very easy to make a few cents on Kongregate now (I didn't hit my target of $1 yet but with the next game I surely will exceed it). Then it's just a matter of scaling a few orders of magnitude until I quit my job . I will get there, with C2 or some other game maker (the infrastructure for Flash games monetization is well established, and very tempting...)

Cheers!

I'm still waiting for Chrome 18 before I can upload my first game... And I need to wait for R82 so the export bug is fixed before I can upload AirScape... (I assume the workaround is untested for Kongregate)

But I am planning on putting stuff up there soon!

The workaround for the export bug works on Kongregate.

Hmm... If Kongs does not approve games anymore, a lot of trash will surely be posted on it, making good game selection hard. Let's hope that the laws of natural selection are tight there.

They don't require approval for Flash games (never did AFAIK) and they're doing just fine. You can "flag" trash and they'll remove it. Natural selection works everywhere
