It also has a highly active gaming community with over 100,000 daily plays and regularly holds 40,000 online players at a time.
The pure amount of games ensures that every type of gamer can find something fun and exciting to play. Casual players will love the integrated chat community in the games, allowing them to mingle with other players while they enjoy titles similar to FarmVille and other Facebook games.

As well as providing visitors with hundreds of deeply engaging games, Kongregate is also a bridge to aid new developers into the industry. Whether you develop Facebook games, iOS or Android titles, or perhaps just a single player RPG, Kongregate has the tools to get your game noticed, while generating revenue.
