Manage your father’s rundown workshop in My Time At Portia

Every month, more games will be available to discover in Utomik’s ever growing game catalog, and now it’s time for Team17’s indie gem My Time At Portia to join the family. My Time At Portia offers a calming diversion from the sometimes hectic reality by letting you take care of a piece of land in Portia. Rebuild your home, meet the inhabitants of the small town and gather resources from the nearby mines. It has something for everyone!

But that’s not all! Those of us who require a bit more tension in their games can get into the newly added Partisans 1941, in which you must use guerrilla tactics to fight against the German occupation on the Eastern Front during WWII. Or perhaps you’d rather puzzle out the perfect railway system in various locations and ages, with different types of trains? You can do just that in Train Valley, now also part of the Utomik catalog. There’s games of all sorts to discover and enjoy!

These are just a few examples of the games that became available earlier this month, with many more to come from Immanitas Entertainment, Whitethorn Digital and Team17. Already a great start of the year; stay tuned for more gaming goodness to come in February, and maybe even a little non-game related surprise…

Manage your father’s rundown workshop… on your Samsung TV

In the near future My Time At Portia and many more games will be accessible at all times on your Mobile and TV as Utomik sets foot into the industry of cloud gaming, Utomik has announced a partnership with Samsung, bringing Utomik to the Samsung Gaming hub on select 2022 Samsung Smart TV models.

As Doki Tops, CEO and founder of Utomik, has stated: "We are excited about Utomik's cloud gaming project that will launch with Samsung, a global CE market leader, as a partner.  Together with our mobile plans, this will bring fantastic gaming experiences such as My Time At Portia to an even bigger audience. A great time for gaming!”

This is the first step for Utomik to make broader use of their signature technology - expect to hear much more about these cloud gaming plans soon.

Not only because it is an immediate improvement on the usability of the platform, but also as the foundation for our ambitious technical and commercial roadmap, like cloud gaming. We now have the tools available to expand into new growing gaming markets. This will make our services even more relevant for our B2B and content partners, and allows new audiences to enjoy our 1250+ games,” says Mark Schroders, CTO.

Statement The Sinking City

August 26, 2020

On December 20th 2019 Utomik signed up The Sinking City for our subscription service in good faith with BBI/Nacon, after which we announced that The Sinking City was coming to Utomik. Shortly after the announcement, Frogwares contacted us and informed us that BBI/Nacon should not have given us access to the game, because it was not theirs to give.

After checking with BBI/Nacon, we were informed of the existing conflict between BBI/Nacon and Frogwares. We then decided to immediately pull back the game from our release schedule, our website and other media. We have no intention to ever release games on our platform for which the rights are not 100% clear. As far as Utomik was concerned this ended our unintentional involvement in the situation.

Utomik is committed to sustainability for independent game developers. We aim to make sure that everyone can earn a fair living making great games by connecting gamers and developers on our platform.
