Kongregate has announced that they will be launching Kartridge, a PC gaming platform, this summer. Kartridge is designed to be a community-driven, downloadable games platform that provides users a wide range of titles, with a main focus on premium games.
The platform is intended to assist game developers of all sizes in finding success with their games, and through this platform, developers will have complete control over their games, such as deciding their own pricing model and customizing the user experience within the Kartridge ecosystem.
[quote style=’1′ cite=” title=”]Kartridge is more than just a platform, it’s a culmination of more than 10 years in the gaming industry. We’ve combined our experience building and running a thriving web gaming portal at Kongregate.com with the knowledge and relationships we’ve built through our publishing program to bring something to both players and developers that was missing in the market.[/quote]
The Kartridge platform is not meant to replace Kongregate.com, and the latter will continue to run its popular web gaming services. Kartridge beta is readily available and players can sign up for access here.
