Okay, so looking at Kongregate it appears they have around 2,100+ total badges, but not every new game has badges for them on their site. I think AG could pull ahead of Kongregate by offering badges for every new game (or almost all of them). But, a task like that might be overly time consuming for the staff, I don't know.(I have a feeling Kongregate has a larger staff). One question, why does Kongregate call them badges but then has a link to quests (which just talk about getting badges)?

Yeah, since everyone can upload a game there, they only badge games that have good ratings and are compatible.

It's their way of rewarding you with more stuff. They gather a bunch of badges from several different games, give them a title like "best of 2007" or "physics pack", get all those badges, then you get a neat little medal on your profile and bonus points.

I'm glad Armor Games has a standard and won't allow just anything to be uploaded. It filters a lot of junk games.

That's a strong cause for an incentive to play those games.

Nope, they should put quests on games that become successful on the site. They shouldn't leave it up to themselves on whether or not to put quests but rather see popular and successful games and see that those games will get more attention when quests are released for it. This is basically what Kong does, and it's a good thing to do.

That's why I've been a member for a long time, mostly. I love the quality of the games they host and release. But they sometimes release bad games which helps my above statement

I agree. But I feel all new games within reason should have quests. Like 7 or above rating. It may not be the best game, but it should have quests.

A horrible game or broken game should not have quests.

Adding Quests to a game requires time on both the game developer's end and our staff, so not every game is going to have Quests. And since this is brand new for us, it will take a bit to get the process fleshed out and smoothly moving -- but we'll get there.

We are as anxious as you to see new Quests, just look at my profile

There's a slight bug with changing the pages of quests on my profile. When i click the next box to scroll through, it sends me to the error 404 page.

Is it just me or are other users experiencing this as well?

Thanks in advance,
Rayce

Sorry for the double post, but I just went to another player's profile (boppins) and attempted to scroll through his quests as well. The same happened there with the 404 page.

Yeah, Rayce when I go to my profile, there is no way for me to scroll through the quests, there is only the first page.

I have also experienced the first page only bug, but at least profiles can't get super long from quests.

I think it would be cool if there was an Easter egg quest for playing the first game by AG
I am curious as to which that game is

Think this is the first game. Just added /play/number until something came up.

Also, I think a quest leaderboard would be neat.

The lowest game ID containing a game by a current/former admin is 14, which belongs to Four Second Frenzy. But the quest would be somewhat more meaningful if it was for game completion. Or do you mean a secret quest that will be awarded for finding the first game by AG (Four Second Frenzy)?

Note: The quote was worded as by AG. If you meant on AG (not specifically from a current or former admin of AG), the correct game would be The Mind Bender.
