“It was important to reinforce our mission to provide gamers with great free games anytime, anywhere, and to broaden the reach of the Kongregate community across multiple platforms. The arrival of Kongregate Arcade is the perfect next step in that strategy.”

The introduction of Kongregate Arcade signals another strategic step by Kongregate to allow gamers to access and play hundreds of games anytime, anywhere from their desktop or on their mobile device, and gives game developers yet another viable platform to design and showcase their games. Kongregate Arcade will also be promoted in parent company GameStop’s, (NYSE: GME), 4,600 stores in the US.

Games are increasingly dominating America’s growing appetite for mobile Apps. Given that Android OS is the fastest growing smartphone operating system, making a move into the Android Marketplace is the next logical step for the rapidly growing Kongregate.

“In creating the Kongregate Arcade, we wanted to solve the game discovery problem that all Android owners have shared,” said Jim Greer, CEO of Kongregate. “It was important to reinforce our mission to provide gamers with great free games anytime, anywhere, and to broaden the reach of the Kongregate community across multiple platforms. The arrival of Kongregate Arcade is the perfect next step in that strategy.”

Initially launching with more than 300 free Flash based games – one of the largest libraries of mobile games in the industry – new titles will be added to the App weekly with selection based on compatibility with the mobile platform and the ability to play on a touch screen device. In addition, Kongregate is actively looking to identify opportunities to work with its community of more than 8,500 developers to create new Flash based game content exclusively for the Kongregate Arcade library which should further jumpstart Android as a viable gaming platform.
