Developed through a collaboration between a leading network of game development communities including ModDB and IndieDB, better known as DBolical, comes mod.io, a new modding API for game developers big and small.
“For too long there has been a lack of tools that help developers support creators in an agnostic manner, restricting modding to a small percentage of tech-savvy users. mod.io removes that barrier, enabling creation, curation and sharing, providing a way for developers to interact directly with their community,” said CEO and co-creator Scott Reismanis.
A new tool, and the first cross-platform API, mod.io ‘levels playing field for game developers and community’. Partnering with titles, 0 A.D, ECO, and Sinespace have partnered with mod.io to demonstrate mod.io’s flexibility to tackle unique challenges not supported by existing solutions in the marketplace.
“We are excited to work with foundation partners doing something different. In the case of 0 A.D, it is working with the open source community. In ECO, mods are purely serverside and Sinespace is a virtual world that treats mods as templates that are there to be built and modded themselves,” said Scott Reismanis.
