Popular Flash gaming site to fund a raft of 'large-scale' new titles from studios

Flash-based games site Kongregate continues to court independent developers, signing deals to exclusively fund five new games.

The titles have been greenlit under the company's new Premium Development Program.

All due for release in 2008 the games signed up are: Dinowaurs by Intuition Games, Remnants of Skystone from Flipline Studios, Lila Dreams by Creatrix Games, Zening from developer Michael King, and Argue (About Everything) from development duo Adam Schroeder and Roger Bankus.

Kongregate was founded last year, and host an array of Flash-based games by developers and builds itself as a YouTube-style service given that the makers of games can upload titles for free.

“With our Premium Development Program, we’ve set out to find and sponsor some of the most talented small studio and indie developers today,” said Jim Greer, CEO and co-founder of Kongregate.

“These original and exclusive Flash games will build on the compelling social and community-based experiences already available on Kongregate, but on a larger scale. For developers, Kongregate provides a wonderful launching pad for new content, where funded developers still retain full rights to their games and share in a percentage of Kongregate’s revenue.”
