About Our Company
Unleashing the Games Industry
Utomik is the no-nonsense unlimited play gaming subscription that offers a growing library of games from over 50 leading publishers. Gamers can effortlessly discover and play games in a single click, thanks to Utomik’s innovative ‘download while you play technology’. You get the real game instantly, not a streamed surrogate.
We are a USA-based startup, with both a strong international drive and a ‘down to earth’ mentality, courtesy of our Dutch roots. Since our founding in September 2014, we’ve been nominated several times as a startup to watch, including being a finalist in the Accenture Innovation Awards. We’ve partnered with many top leading publishers such as Disney, Epic Games, Nordic, Codemasters and Gamehouse.
Our team is a passionate, open minded family that works, laughs and fights together to make something great. From our founders and veteran senior developers to the designers, social media mangers, live streamers, play testers and customer support team, everyone is instrumental in creating a fantastic gaming service. That includes company mom Femke, who makes the best coffee and sandwiches as well as keeping us nerds organized.
It’s our mission to "Unleash Gaming" and let gamers play great games without barriers and limits.
