Hi everyone,

Unfortunately due changes in the Armor Games and Kongregate platforms we are unable to support, and as part of our overall updates to our web games and sites in response to the new EU GDPR policies, Highgrounds will no longer be available to play on either sites as of May 31st. We want our Armor Games and Kongregate Games players to be able to continue playing Highgrounds our main website,, and have put together a support system to help you make the transition. Here are the details:

To be clear, this only affects players on Armor Games and Kongregate. If you play on our website (, Newgrounds, or any other website, your account will NOT be affected.

Armor Games and Kongregate players use a separate account system from our website. Your login and account will not work if entered into any of our other platforms. There are technical limitations that prevent us from replicating your account on, so the option we are offering is to create a new account with as much value or more as you had on Armor Games or Kongregate with Gems added to your account.

Please take the following steps if you would like to continue playing the game via

E-mail: with the headline “<Platform> Games Account Transition” with “<Platform>” being swapped for the platform you are transferring from (Armor Games or Kongregate). In the email please provide the following information:

Include Key Information

  1. Your Highgrounds nickname associated with your Armor Games or Kongregate account (this is important — this is what lets us see your game-collection info in our support system).
  2. The username you use to login to Armor Games or Kongregate with.
  3. If you have a site account you would like us to transfer your progress to, please provide the same information as in a & b for that account. If not, please let us know what email you would like to register with, and we will create a new account for you.
  4. Whether or not you have made any paid purchases on Armor Games or Kongregate. If you can’t remember, that’s okay.

Login With Provided Account And Set Password: We will then follow up with you with information on how to login at and change your password.

Please reach out to us before June 15th if you’d like your account transferred.

Though we no longer make money from Highgrounds, and operate the servers at our cost, we want to continue to support the community of players that love the game as much as we do. Please feel free to ask any questions you might have about this process on our Discord Channel or via our support email address (

Thank you for understanding as we work to find the best solution for all of our players affected by these changes.
