Kabam is the leader in the western world for free-to-play core games with 1st and 3rd party published titles available on mobile devices and the Web. The company is revolutionizing the video games industry by innovating in the business of gaming, game discovery, and great games.
Unlike traditional console video games, Kabam games are available to play for free virtually anywhere gamers look for their entertainment—on mobile devices via the Apple Store or Google Play and on the Web via Facebook, Yahoo, Kabam.com and other platforms.
Kabam’s “freemium” business model enables players to access games at no cost or obligation, unlike console games that are expensive to buy or inconvenient to rent, and are played only on stationary and costly hardware devices that are upgraded about every seven years. Players who enjoy Kabam games can pay for premium content in the game to enhance their playing experience. The average Kabam player is highly engaged, playing more than two hours a day.
Console quality graphics and next generation technology are the hallmark of Kabam games. The company merges the art of game design and the science of consumer behavior to create immersive games that span multiple genres, including strategy, role-playing games (RPG), racing, action and adventure, and casino.
Kabam games include some of the most recognizable brands in the world. Kabam’s hit franchise Kingdoms of Camelot has grossed more than $200 million in less than four years and is one of the top ten strategy franchises of all time. Dragons of Atlantis is another top 20 strategy game. Kabam has partnered with leading Hollywood studios for mobile and Web games based on such iconic films as The Hobbit, Fast & Furious 6, and The Godfather.
Seven Kabam games gross more than $1 million per month, including three grossing more than $2 million and two grossing more than $7 million per month. Currently, three Kabam games are on the iOS Top 15 grossing list. At the end of 2012, Kabam’s first mobile game, Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North was the highest grossing app on iOS of the year.
Kabam also publishes games by third party developers, including Book of Heroes (iOS) and Wartune (Kabam.com). Launched in 2012, Kabam Publishing provides outside developers access to the same technology platform and marketing tools that Kabam’s in-house development teams use to bring wildly popular games to players worldwide. In April 2013, Kabam announced the $50 million WWDevFund to help eastern game developers bring their games to western markets.
Founded in 2006 in Silicon Valley, Kabam has 700 employees across three continents, with corporate headquarters in San Francisco, game studios in San Francisco, Austin, Tex., Vancouver, Canada, and Beijing, China, and business offices in London, England, Seoul, Korea, Strassen, Luxembourg, and Berlin, Germany. – less
