It's like they're PC games, only they're still connected to Facebook and Google+. Well, that and they still look like browser games. Kabam has released four of its most popular social games through SweetLabs's Pokki platform, a service that allows developers to turn their web-based games and apps into desktop-based programs with the same functionality.

Kabam has made several of its core-targeted social gamesavailable as desktop applications for the first time, using SweetLabs' Pokki platform to convert the online titles into PC apps.

Thrist of Night

Users can now access traditionally Facebook/Google+ games like Kabam's Dragons of Atlantis, Edgeworld, Thirst of Night, and The Godfather: Five Families without needing to open a web browser, though an online connection will still be required to play the multiplayer, synchronous strategy games.

Launched in June, the Pokki platform is built to package online sites, applications, and games as desktop programs. This Kabam announcement marks one of SweetLabs'first partnerships with a game developer.

To entice more developers to bring their games to Pokki, SweetLabs launched a $50,000 contest to reward studios that release games built with HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript on its platform.
