Utomik and Nordic Games partner to add 40 games including Darksiders, The Raven and Red Faction to subscription gaming

February 18, 2016

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, USA - Utomik, the “unlimited gaming” subscription service, today announced that it has signed a partnership agreement with Nordic Games GmbH, a leading global game publisher based in Vienna, Austria. The agreement means that leading Nordic titles, including Darksiders, The Raven, Red Faction and Painkiller titles are all becoming available via Utomik’s subscription service. This latest partnership expands further Utomik’s library of games, with publishing contracts secured for more than 500 titles.

Nordic Games GmbH is a wholly owned subsidiary of Nordic Games Group AB, focusing on computer- and video games for PC/MAC/Linux and present/past console platforms. Founded in 2011, the Vienna/Austria based company puts great emphasis on its extensive game catalogue, both established brands as well as recently acquired brands.

Utomik's vision to "Unleash Gaming" is designed to bring more games to more people by moving the industry into the era of subscription gaming, enabling consumers to access games as easily as they do TV shows and songs today. This vision is powered by Utomik's unique and proprietary instant play technology. Games are played directly from a consumer’s own PC - meaning lag-free play and 100% original quality on top titles, great Indie games and gems. Additionally, developers can deploy their games on Utomik’s platform in just a few hours with zero adaptations required.

Utomik is about to enter its ‘Open Beta” period during which consumers will be able to sign up to try out the service for a discounted introductory monthly subscription. Currently still in its Closed Beta period, the service has attracted over 16,000 sign-ups to participate.

Commenting on the partnership, Thomas Reisinger, Senior Online Sales Manager of Nordic, says, “The idea of subscription gaming is something we have been considering for quite some time already. We asked ourselves: If it works for television and music, why shouldn’t it work for gaming as well? It is our philosophy at Nordic Games to always look and think about new opportunities and interesting concepts that might change the face of the gaming industry. “Unlimited Gaming” for a subscription-fee is definitely up that alley, therefore we’re giving it a try by making a carefully selected part of our line-up available on Utomik's platform. We are excited to see how this will work out and are looking forward to our partnership with Utomik.”

Doki Tops, Utomik CEO, adds, “Nordic Games is a global leader in adventure games and childhood classics, Soon, our subscribers will have some of their most awesome titles instantly playable at their fingertips. This partnership symbolizes yet another step towards realizing our vision to ‘Unleash Gaming’. Together, we want to grow the industry and evolve it to the next level by making gaming as present as TV shows, movies and music in people's lives.”
