Extra Life 2018

Kongregate has been building a gaming community of developers and players for twelve years, and people are important to us. We're participating in Extra Life to help children in need by gathering as many donations as we can for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals! We'll also be livestreaming our gaming marathon on our Kongregate Twitch channel!

We're also celebrating the upcoming launch of Kartridge this year! Kartridge is Kongregate's new curated premium downloadable games platform, featuring developer-friendly terms and tools, plus custom badges and a metagame that allows you to earn coupons and free games while you level up, among other features. Even though we're still in closed beta, Kartridge already has an excellent selection of games ready to be purchased and played. It launches to open beta on November 1, so come check us out!

Our very first Extra Life two years ago was in celebration of our 10 year anniversary of Kongregate, so it's fitting that we're here for yours. Congratulations on 10 years, Extra Life!


Start: 10am Pacific Time on November 3, 2018
End: 10am Pacific Time on November 4, 2018

Donation Bonuses

Here are the donation thresholds, and the associated bonuses with them! If you meet any threshold, you also get the bonuses from lower thresholds, though you only get one profile award and one exclusive Animation Throwdown legendary award. If you make multiple separate donations, we'll total them up for you and assign your rewards based on your total donation. Rewards will most likely be sent out at the end of the event, and will be based on your Kongregate username. There may be more rewards over the month, so check back!
