What does this mean for me? You will always be able to play your favorite games on Kongregate. However, certain site features may suddenly stop working and leave you with a severely degraded experience.
What should I do? We strongly urge all our users to upgrade to modern browsers for a better experience and improved security.
We suggest you install the latest version of one of these browsers:
Kongregate is a community-driven browser games portal with an open platform for all web games.

We do support Shockwave as well, and it’s not out of the question that we’ll support more game types down the road, but at the moment Flash is the most widely adopted web gaming platform, so we are heavily focused on that.
Who came up with the title? Reminds me of pen island and a couple other various sites.
(on topic) The problem with .exe’s is that you can’t run them in a browser, and it’s easy to put viruses in them (or malicious code – heh, I’ve had some fun), which would detract from the kongregate gaming experience!
Another great place for .exe’s: [http://experimentalgameplay.com/](http://experimentalgameplay.com/). I love this site – has some truly crazy stuff in it. :-) But I do agree with Kong for keeping to the safe and ubiquitous Flash format.
