Kabam, Plinga Bringing Dragons of Atlantis to European Social Networks

Dragons of AtlantisKabam (formerly Watercooler) has partnered with European game publisher Plinga to launch its “massively multiplayer social game (MMSG)” Dragons of Atlantis to 14 new European social networks. Beginning March 1, Dragons of Atlantis will be exposed to a large audience base of new potential players on these non-Facebook platforms.

Plinga, a Berlin-based company founded in 2009, will be responsible for the customer service, translation, and distribution of Kabam’s games in Europe, beginning with Dragons of Atlantis. The game will be playable in 11 different languages and will debut on social networks such as the Dutch network Hyves and the Polish network Nasza Klasa. Chris Carvalho, COO of Kabam stated, “We are excited to partner with Plinga to bring Dragons of Atlantis to the large number of European gamers who play games on social networks other than Facebook.”

Dragons of Atlantis was launched last October by Wonderhill, who was acquired by Kabam shortly thereafter. The game is very similar in gameplay to Kingdoms of Camelot and other fantasy themed strategy games on Facebook. According to our AppData tracking service, Dragons of Atlantis currently has over 2 million monthly users and just under 250,000 daily users.
