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.
Utomik provides a monthly subscription with a library of 1300+ games, and our team works hard to add more titles every week. There is a wide variety of games available thanks to partnerships with publishers and developers such as Idea Factory International, Curve Digital and many more. With games across multiple genres such as FPS, RPG, Strategy, Action Adventure, Indie, we aim to provide a deeply diverse catalog with something to enjoy for every kind of gamer.
Using our state-of-the-art technology, any of our 1300+ PC games are already playable after downloading only a small part. Get the full PC gaming experience with no streaming and no lag. Anyone can be a gamer, even if your internet connection isn’t usually ideal.
Utomik's games were already on PC, but they are now also available on select Samsung TVs and soon on Android mobile devices thanks to our cloud gaming solution. We currently have roughly 100 of our games available for the cloud, and have a dedicated team working on adding more.
