Detailed Description

Update

Kongregate is a casual gaming social network where gamers can gain ranking and earn awards. The site allows developers to upload their games and share in revenues (25-50%) from the ads displayed around the games. Kongregate promotes developers to upload new games by having "game of the week" contests.

Kongregate pays skilled developers between $20,000-80,000 to create premium games to provide their community with quality games. Each premium game comes with a free version that can be upgraded to paid premium version.

Competitors include Miniclip.
