Kabam (formerly Watercooler, Inc.) is an interactive entertainment company founded in 2006 and headquartered in San Francisco, CA. The company developed and published massively multiplayer social games (MMSG’s) such as Kingdoms of Camelot and other mobile games Star Wars: Uprising and Marvel: Contest of Champions. Before expanding into gaming, Kabam established itself as a social applications developer with entertainment and sports communities totaling more than 60 million users. Kabam markets freemium games for mobile devices, social networking services, its own web site, and other game sites.
The company has focused on developing "real games," or games with immersive gameplay mechanics akin to more traditional MMOs with an emphasis on the spending and gambling of virtual currency. In late 2009, Kabam launched Kingdoms of Camelot, one of the first successful strategy games on Facebook, but in June 2010, the number of players began constantly shrinking.
As of April 2015, Kabam has announced a shift in its focus to developing AAA mobile games.
