Ok, would you say having general support for 'IAP' is exactly the same as supporting Kong Kedits? Or are they slightly different in some cases irbis?
The only IAP option for Kongregate platform is by their native Kreds. That's the only form of IAPs allowed in there. Same goes for Ads. Everything has to go through them. If you use 3rd party Ads or IAPs - you get banned.
In short: yea hehe. They're the same in Kong case.
To explain the gravity of the situation
What we have now:
One Ad upon game start. That's it. The player can play for 48h in row but you still earn once.
New Kong API:
One Ad plays at the start. Then you can "call" more Ads as many times as you desire. Every 5 minutes, or every X ingame task. Lets say you use that 10 times per one play session. Boom - you are earning 10 times more than before. And that's not even counting in IAPs.
Now you see how big of a deal this is for all of us?
The biggest problem here is not even Scirra but the community, who just do not realize or refuse to understand the possibilities that this opens. With new API - Kongregate games could easily go toe-to-toe with mobiles, in terms of income. And browser games are far more easier to produce, maintain and expand. No CPU, GPU, RAM or size limits. Little to no optimizations. Because all you have to worry about are the browsers and they are mostly normalized nowadays. When on mobiles you have to deal with Android vs Apple. With having your game being played on modern device and on an 3 years old one. And all mobile developers will agree that in world of mobile gaming - even one year between smartphone models is a century in terms of technology. Year old Samsung is like old gameboy, when newest iPhone have horsepower of a desktop PC. And your game has to run well on all of them hehe. On browsers - no more of this bias.
And this is coming from someone who developed games for every possible platform and OS, except consoles.
I can back my words with my own years of experience.
