Cross Platform Mod API & SDK

https://mod.io

   (0 reviews)

mod.io is an cross platform mod service created by the team behind ModDB.com and IndieDB.com. It can be integrated in-game using the  REST API, C/C++ SDK or engine plugins (if available) Unity is ready and Unreal Engine is in development.

Features include:

  • Platform agnostic (support 1 click mod installs on Steam, Epic Games Store, Discord, GOG, itch.io and even consoles in the future)
  • Clientless (mod.io has no other dependencies and works behind the scenes in your game)
  • Embeddable web app UI, so you can integrate your mod community anywhere
  • Powerful search, filtering and tagging of mods
  • Moderation and reporting systems built-in

Steps to getting mod.io integrated:

  1. Add your game to our test environment or production
  2. Read our API documentation for an overview of how mod.io works
  3. Choose an Engine Plugin, API or SDK to integrate mod.io into your game and mod making tools
  4. Ready to launch? Add your game to our production environment then let's discuss promoting your release
  5. Need help? Our team is available on Discord to assist and our getting started guide has more information for you

 

 

Benefits of using mod.io:
mod.io offers the same core functionality as Steamworks Workshop (1 click mod installs in-game), plus mod hosting, moderation and all of the critical pieces needed. Where we differ is our approach to modding and the flexibility a REST API offers. For example: 

  • Our API is not dependent on a client or SDK, allowing you to run mod.io in many places such as your homepage and launchers
  • Designing a good mod browsing UI is hard, our plugins ship with a UI built in to save you a lot of effort and help your mods stand out
  • We don’t apply rules globally, so if you want to enable patronage, sales or other experimental features, reach out to discuss
  • Our platform is built by the super experienced ModDB.com team and is continually improving for your benefit
  • Your community can consume the mod.io API to build modding fan sites or discord bots if they want

Large studios and publishers:
A private white label option is available to license, if you want a fully featured mod-platform that you can control and host in-house. Contact us to discuss.

      Hi,
      My name's Greg Giddens, I'm a game developer, programmer, looking for some help creating art assets for the strategy management game I'm developing.
      The game is called Schism and it's being developed in Unity. Schism is a strategy management game where the player manages a cult and their compound, building the compound to be self-sufficient, recruiting more members, and growing the cult's influence. Additionally, the player will also engaging in turn-based tactical missions to further their cult's agenda.
      Currently the development team is two people strong: I'm programming and co-designing, and my creative partner Steve Peacock is writing and co-designing. We've been developing Schism since February and have the main systems in place. What's really holding us back at the moment is our lack of quality 2D art assets in the form of building sprites, character portraits and scenes, and UI art. However, for the time being we just want to create a short reveal trailer with 2D stills so we can launch a Kickstarter. 
      For the trailer we need 9 scenes of people performing particular actions (more details would be provided once collaboration is agreed) and a stylised version of our title, Schism.
      Unfortunately we're not in a position to pay. We would, of course, pay if our Kickstarter was successful after the fact, however, I appreciate how much of a red flag that may raise with some of you, so please consider this to be a completely unpaid job.
      If anyone is interested please leave a comment with a link to any samples.
      Many Thanks.

      For this Screenshot Saturday we are enjoying the warm summer weather but we can guarantee it's not as hot as it is down in the caves on Tartarus. Luckily the suit our Alien is wearing can withstand very extreme temperatures.

      Hi everyone
      I would like to present my first free mobile game, currently only available on Android. I created it in my spare time at Unity with the help of Corgi Engine and DOTween. It is an arcade game in which you have to pass the level as soon as possible, because the player loses his life every second. However, to go to the next level, we need to run the portal. There are two power ups, double jump and wall jumping. During the game, coins are collected that can be spent on a new character in the shop. There is also a table of the best times. There are no in-app purchases in the game.
      Any feedback is welcome
      Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.redoakbytes.timerun2050&hl=en
      Here are some screenshoots:
