Habbo API Launched: The Hub for Developers0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:45 pm

Habbo is expanding its borders by utilizing outside developers with the launch of its website specifically designed to cater to those avid developers– the Habbo API. It’s a great opportunity for developers far and wide to reach out to the Habbo population and broadcast their games, which would otherwise be quite difficult.

However, a word of warning, whilst the platform itself has been launched, it’s at its initial phase and currently only available to companies and educational institutions. Although, there are numerous opportunities for private developers to sign up to this system by requesting an invite. The Habbo API has its own flashy site, https://dev.habbo.com and allows anyone to register.

Habbo API uses an HTTP/JSON interface and eager developers should be able to get a fully functioning game on the API within a week. Those who do successfully register on the Habbo API also get other benefits such as access to Habbo’s social graph and monetization capabilities. Sulake’s Executive Vice-President, Antti Viitanen, gave a brief statement over the vast array of opportunities on the Habbo API: “Habbo offers developers globally a great opportunity to create games for the huge Habbo user base, especially now, when the platform isn’t yet crowded with games.” Developers are free to use any of the standard game technologies such as HTML 5, Flash etc. Sulake has worked with a number of big-brand game studios in order to ensure a smooth launch of its API.

There are numerous benefits to both developers and Habbos alike. Developers can now find an inexpensive way of developing their games, whilst exposing themselves to a large market of teenagers, whilst Habbos will be set to enjoy a large bag of games to try their hands on. You can decide for yourselves whether this is a positive step for Sulake by pressing ‘Read More & Comment’.
