Ready to unleash the next Angry Birds on the mobile-gizmo-obsessed world but need some help with logistics (i.e., cash)? Check out the Kongregate Mobile Developers program, a $10 million fund for independent developers of free-to-play mobile games. Launched yesterday by the online gaming platform Kongregate and backed by its parent company GameStop, the initiative will offer developers not only capital but also help with distribution and marketing to help their games gain traction in the highly competitive mobile arena. Taking charge of the new fund will be Urbansquall and Zynga veteran Pany Haritatos, the freshly hired vice president of Konregate’s new mobile division. “Developers are increasingly finding it harder to get their games discovered through the different app stores,” said Haritatos in a statement issued yesterday. “I personally faced these challenges in 2009 while managing my own game studio. Utilizing the Kongregate platform made my games successful, which ultimately led to my studio being acquired by Zynga.” Learn more here.
