Mod API & SDK

   (0 reviews)

mod.io is an open platform for hosting mods 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.

      About the game: The project is a small trading/combat/exploration oriented game set in a medieval fantasy world developed in unity. The game will be hard and punishing and not meant to be finished on the first try. It involves several different play styles with concepts seen in both old school games and newer ones. It's nothing like what is currently on the market and therefor kind of hard to pin down into a specific genre. 
      Our team: The project is in it's very early stage and we are currently building the team. We have three people so far which are split among programming, writing and development. We will be adding more team members as the project moves forward. Our current goal is to build a small prototype to be able to present for further development.
      What we need: We are currently seeking a 2D artist for various needs ranging from character to world  concept and designs.
      If you are interested or have any more questions, contact me on discord at Veizyr#1797 for more details. We'd love to see your portfolio.

      This is how a mall looks like when a punk breaks one of its window.
      What the image doesn't tell you is that a loud alarm is being blasted trough your ears, too!

      Some 'Game Art' for this weeks #screenshotsaturday and 'old' vs 'new'. The tokens you can find when solving puzzles were left behind by an ancient alien race. They are crucial to figure out the code needed to visit the planets in this system. Which version do you prefer?
