Uken builds beautiful social games that make people stare, smile, jump, and feel awesome inside.
We consider ourselves designers and technologists, datamongers and artists. Through collaboration, we pair the craft of design with feedback and data to deliver a pace and rhythm in each game session that immerses our audience and leaves them wanting more. We have a quirky, nerdy culture that fosters creativity, collaboration, quality ideas, and a data driven mindset. We believe in moving quickly and improving constantly and that mantra is reflected in the weekly updates we make to our games and internal technologies. We have an appetite for pushing technical boundaries but with a focus on practical applications.
Since 2008, we've launched 13 midcore and casual games which have captivated a global audience. Our most popular titles include Bingo Pop and Kings of Pool which, combined have been downloaded over 12 million times and engage over 1 million active players every month. Most recently, we partnered with Sony to reimagine our favourite quiz show Jeopardy! in a brand new mobile game called Jeopardy! World Tour.
We're just getting started!
