We've whiled away many, many hours on Kongregate - that pantheon of browser-based brilliance. But times are a-changing, and Kongregate is expanding to deliver downloadable free-to-play experiences as well as in-browser, Flash-based titles, kickstarting things off with Uber Entertainment's Super Monday Night Combat, Kiz Studios' Smashmuck Champions, and Balance Worlds' Bomb Bubbies, with ore to come in the following weeks.
“This is a huge evolution forward for Kongregate, our gamers, and game developers,” said Jim Greer, Kongregate's CEO. “We look forward to applying our expertise around game launch and monetization to our new downloadable games catalog.”
“Adding downloadable titles brings a new level of gaming to core players looking for high-definition graphics with more options and content to select from. For game developers, we want to help them leverage our network of distribution and promotional channels to acquire and retain users, and ultimately monetize those interested in enhancing their gaming experience.”
