Game APIDocumentation

GameJolt API

There are many libraries and plugins developed by the community already. Rather than write custom code for interfacing with the Game API directly, most developers tend to use one of the already written libraries.

View libraries and plugins.

If you do decide to write your own code for calling the Game API directly, then fear not, it's easy! Calls to the system are done over HTTP or HTTPS, so nothing special is needed, and you can test the service using a normal web browser.

The current version of the API is 1.2.


These are the features currently supported by the API:

Namespace Description
