KABAM Partners with Kongregate to Bring Free-to-Play core games to avid Gamers
Leading Developer of Hardcore Social Games Launching Three Titles on
Kongregate Gaming Portal, Starting with Dragons of Atlantis
REDWOOD CITY – February 16, 2012 – Kabam™, the leading developer of hardcore social games, today announced it has partnered with Kongregate, the leading destination for free browser-based games with nearly 16 million monthly unique visitors, to bring multiple Kabam massively multiplayer titles to Kongregate’s popular portal. Dragons of Atlantis™, Kabam’s hit dragon-based strategy game, is already live on Kongregate with additional title launches planned. The agreement provides Kabam with a new channel for reaching core gamers while giving the Kongregate community access to a selection of top Kabam social games.
Dragons of Atlantis transports players to the lost world of Atlantis to raise an army of dragons and build a powerful empire using the mysterious powers of the Ancient Ones. Like all Kabam games, Dragons of Atlantis combines elements of MMO-style play with the connectivity and interaction of social gameplay.
“Kongregate is a great addition to our rapidly expanding mix of distribution partners,” said Chris Carvalho, Chief Operating Officer of Kabam. “Kabam games provide the immersive and feature-rich experience Kongregate’s audience of dedicated gamers seek, and this partnership allows us to expand on our multi-platform distribution approach and reach millions of additional core gamers. Additionally Kongregate’s parent company GameStop provides us the potential to explore other unique avenues of promotion and distribution for our games.”
Kabam will be using a new, internally created technology framework called Pyramid™ to facilitate multi-platform integration and distribution for its games with partners like Kongregate. Additional Kabam titles slated for launch on Kongregate in coming weeks include The Godfather™: Five Families™ and Thirst of Night™. The Godfather: Five Families is an online multiplayer game is set in the Prohibition Era preceding the films, with players and crime families battling for money, power, and respect. Thirst of Night, a new Kabam title, is a massively multiplayer online strategy game that transports players to a dark world where vampires are building a new empire in the ashes of human civilization.
“Our community of nearly 16 million hardcore gamers are looking forward to experiencing Kabam’s style of games on their home turf,” said Emily Greer, Co-Founder and COO of Kongregate. “Kongregate provides a first-class platform for titles like Dragons of Atlantis that provide a deeper, immersive experience with the convenience of browser-based gameplay.” Emily also noted that GameStop, Kongregate’s parent company, gives Kabam access to potentially millions of more gamers both online and off.
