Dragons are a basically a known commodity to "hardcore" gamers. We're willing to beat they've slain at least a few gajillion on average. Kongregate, a leading online games portal for traditional gamers, thinks it needs even more dragons. To that end, Kongregate has worked with Kabam to bring its top game, Dragons of Atlantis, to its platform. But that's just the beginning.

Kabam plans to bring even more of its strategy social games to Kongregate's 16 million unique monthly players, with Dragons of Atlantis already playable there. The games slated for Kongregate in the coming weeks include The Godfather: Five Families and Thirst of Night. The developer has created a new technology, dubbed Pyramid, for multi-platform integration and distribution of its games on platforms like Kongregate.

"Kongregate is a great addition to our rapidly expanding mix of distribution partners," Kabam COO Chris Carvalho said in a release. "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."

We never thought we'd see the day when social games and GameStop crossed paths. This news follows Kabam games popping up as dedicated desktop apps through Pokki, another move to attract the core gamer crowd. Perhaps the stigma of "Facebook games = FarmVille" is too tough for Kabam's audience to see through. Regardless, Kabam is on the hunt.
