The Walking Dead season one now playable on Utomik and more games coming soon

PALO ALTO, USA - Utomik, the “unlimited play” monthly subscription gaming service, today announced that as a result of its new partnership with Telltale Games, season one of The Walking Dead, is now playable on its platform. The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series is the first of many Telltale titles to be made available via Utomik.

A critically acclaimed winner of over 100 Game of the Year awards, The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series is set in the world of Robert Kirkman's award-winning comic book series. Lee Everett, a man convicted of a crime of passion, has been given the chance for redemption in a world devastated by the undead. Players will experience life-changing events, meet new characters and familiar ones from the original comic, and also visit locations that foreshadow the story of Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes. The Walking Dead offers a tailored game experience – player actions, choices and decisions affect how the story plays out across the entire series.

Utomik’s vision is to ‘Unleash Gaming’ by enabling consumers to access games as easily as they do TV shows, films and music today. Its monthly subscription offers consumers unlimited play on as many games featured on the service as they like.

The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series is a highly acclaimed new addition to Utomik’s ever-growing library of games now featuring more than 360 playable games. Thanks to Utomik’s partnerships with leading publishers and developers, games, in all genres, are added each week. Currently in open beta at a 40% discounted price of $5.99 per month, new users can try out the service 14 days for free by registering on www.utomik.com.

Utomik’s CEO, Doki Tops, says, “Our subscribers are going to ‘devour’ Telltale’s The Walking Dead. The fun part is that the choices players make throughout the game affect each episode as well as the final turnout so the pressure is truly on! Friends and families may want to put their heads together before someone takes a wrong decision! The cherry on the cake is that more of Telltale’s fantastic adventures will also soon be on our platform.”

Commenting on the new partnership with Utomik, Steve Allison, SVP, Publishing at Telltale adds, “The Walking Dead is one of our most played games and we are excited that it can now be enjoyed by even more people on Utomik. Subscription gaming is a great fit with our episodic-style content, similar to the concept of series running on Netflix.”

Los Angeles, CA, May 16, 2016 – VUBIQUITY, the leading global provider of services connecting content owners and video providers to deliver entertainment to any screen, today announced it will be the exclusive global B2B commercial distributor for Utomik, the “unlimited gaming” monthly subscription service. Utomik offers users unlimited play with access to hundreds of popular and classic PC games that they can start playing quickly due to its instant “1-click” play system.

The partnership marks VUBIQUITY’s first major foray into the $32 billion PC gaming industry and will provide broadband distributors with unfettered access to a market of hundreds of millions of gamers. For Utomik, the deal provides potential to gain new subscribers as well as to increase brand awareness. Through the deal, VUBIQUITY’s affiliate partners can either bundle Utomik’s monthly service with subscription broadband packages or offer the service separately, “a la carte”, with minimal overhead or capacity concerns. VUBIQUITY will lead marketing and sales efforts while Utomik will continue to operate its service directly to consumers through its standalone system.

“This relationship allows our partners to capitalize on new opportunities in today’s dynamic content landscape,” said Michele Edelman, VUBIQUITY’s EVP, Marketing & Content Strategy. “As the development and distribution of gaming continues to evolve, Utomik’s library of games and instant download technology combined with the broad reach of our distributors creates new and exciting opportunities for our partners and their gaming customers alike.”

Founded in 2014, the Silicon Valley-based Utomik has captured the imagination of the gaming industry through its vision to “Unleash Gaming” by enabling consumers to access games as easily as they do TV shows, films and music. To date, the service is available in over thirty markets and has secured publishing contracts with sixteen partners for more than 650 titles. Its unique and proprietary instant play technology loads games up to 100 times faster than any other service and means that users can enjoy lag-free play in the game’s original quality. In April, Utomik inked a deal with SEGA to add over twenty of their legendary games to their expanding library including Total War™ and Sonic the Hedgehog™.

“This distribution deal with VUBIQUITY enables us to unleash gaming faster and allows VUBIQUITY and its partners to add gaming to their portfolio of content and services,” said Doki Tops, Founder and CEO of Utomik. “VUBIQUITY’s enterprising approach to content strategy and its wide network of distributors and broadband providers means that our service will be at the fingertips of quite literally hundreds of millions of people.”

UTOMIK COLLABORATES WITH CODEMASTERS TO UNLEASH GAMES

INCLUDING GRID 2 AND OVERLORD - INTO ITS SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE

PALO ALTO, USA - Utomik, the “unlimited gaming” subscription service for $9.99 per month, today announced that it has signed an agreement with Codemasters, a leading global game developer and publisher based out of the United Kingdom. As a result of this agreement, a large proportion of Codemasters games, highlights including Overlord 1 & 2, Operation Flashpoint as well as GRID 2 from the official BAFTA award-winning GRID™ games series, will be featured as part of Utomik’s subscription service.

With an impressive 30-year heritage, Codemasters continues to be one of the industry’s most successful developers, creating classic titles including Dizzy, Micro Machines, Brian Lara Cricket, TOCA, Colin McRae Rally, LMA Manager and Operation Flashpoint. The company pioneered the DiRT franchise and masterminded its proprietary EGO racing engine.

Utomik’s vision of the future is to “Unleash Gaming” by moving the industry into a new era through subscription-based gaming, offering consumers no limits playtime while supporting the industry for continued growth. The company’s subscription-based service is currently in its ‘Closed Beta” period during which consumers can sign up and try out the no limits playtime, service for free. To date, the company has received over 12,000 signups to participate and already secured publishing contracts for more than 500 games. Utomik’s technology distances itself from pixel streaming solutions by loading PC games up to 100 times faster, directly from a consumer’s PC ensuring 100% original quality and a lag-free experience.

Commenting on the collaboration, Toby Evan-Jones, Director of Business Development at Codemasters, said, “The constantly evolving landscape of how games are accessed and played is incredibly exciting. This opportunity to make our games available to a wider audience is a move which makes perfect sense to us at Codemasters. Based upon the closed beta to date, Utomik’s service seems fantastic for players who care about rapid access to games. Let’s be honest, with ever-improving visual and audio fidelity, install sizes are not tending to get any smaller! We fully understand why some players are being drawn to the speed of access offered by Utomik’s service and are pleased to make a range of our games available to their subscribers.”

Doki Tops, Utomik CEO, said, “Our subscribers are going to love the games from Codemasters and be able to play them lag-free, as often as they like, whenever they like! Some of the best racing and fantasy games around will soon be available as part of Utomik’s subscription. As a big GRID and dark fantasy humor fan, I am thrilled about bringing these games and many more awesome Codemasters titles to our users.”

UTOMIK TAKES A ‘THRONE’ AT GAMESBEAT 2015

PALO ALTO, USA - Utomik, the “unlimited gaming” subscription service, today announced that it is an official partner at GamesBeat 2015, taking place 12-13 October, 2015 in San Francisco, USA. The company will present its vision to unleash gaming and demonstrate how its technology loads PC games up to 100 times faster than any other service currently available without compromising on graphical quality.

Utomik’s booth at GamesBeat will allow participants to try out the new on-line subscription service offering unlimited gaming for $9,99 per month. Subscribers get access to hundreds of games and enjoy lag-free, instant play in one simple click.

Doki Tops, Utomik’s CEO, is a speaker at the event and will make a presentation entitled “Unleash gaming, win the war and claim the throne” on Tuesday, October 13 at 2pm PST. A live stream of the session is broadcasted on Twitch.

Commenting on this year’s GamesBeat, Doki Tops said, “Game of Thrones as the event’s 2015 theme is very fitting as the industry turns its attention to the design of future strategies to survive in the new reality. A change in the gaming model is ultimately inevitable. The bigger question is how to convert this into a gamer’s paradise while at the same time preserving and growing the industry.

No one wants to see gaming suffer the same cannibalization the music industry did. Instead a structured subscription based model will mean a greater number of consumers will play more games for longer with each playtime generating some incremental revenue. We are driving the change by working hand in hand with game publishers to shape the future and ensure a positive transition. Our vision to unleash gaming is designed for a long and prosperous reign of gaming kings and queens, in other words, delighted consumers and a booming industry.”

Utomik is currently in its ‘Closed Beta” period during which consumers can try out the no limits playtime, subscription based service for free. To date, the company has received over 10,000 signups to participate and reactions remain consistently positive with 86% stating they would recommend it to a friend. Additionally, over 70% said they would take a Utomik subscription when it goes live.

Utomik has secured publishing contracts for more than 500 games and continues to expand its library. During the closed beta, gamers can play a selection of games from the entire library, including Darksiders II, Pillars of Eternity, Evoland 2, King Arthur II and Torchlight.

The company, dubbed ‘the Spotify of gaming’ by the media, is sending out beta activation keys to lucky gamers around the world now. They are the first to try out this exciting new service.

Utomik announced their service last February, offering unlimited gaming for $9.99 per month, which resulted in overwhelming community response and media attention. Utomik’s unique take on streaming lets gamers play the real game (not a video stream like OnLive) up to a 100 times faster without lag.

Utomik has secured the first publishing contracts totaling over 400 games and is rapidly expanding its library further. During the closed beta, gamers can play a selection of games from the entire library. Games include Darksiders II, Broken Age, King Arthur II and Torchlight.

Utomik successfully wrapped up a first alpha phase last month and surveyed the participants to back up its claims. Gamers responded positively about the Utomik experience so far. “Color me amazed how it just works”, “No lag as promised” and “Fantastic service” are just a few of the responses.

"Gamers love to play many games for a monthly fee. Their first reactions are fantastic, now we look to expand that success with the Closed Beta." says CEO Doki Tops.

During the closed beta, gamers can play a selection of games from the hundreds already under contract. Titles include Darksiders II, Broken Age, King Arthur II and Torchlight. Utomik is currently in negotiations with leading publishers to quickly expand its library of games.

Utomik Reinvents Streaming Games

Play the real game fast instead of a low quality video stream

Innovative USA-based startup Utomik will launch a new gaming service for PC, where gamers can play games up to 100 times faster and as many as they want for a small monthly fee. To achieve this, Utomik uses a radically different kind of streaming technology. Play the real game fast from your own PC instead of watching a low quality video stream.

Play Games Up to 100x Faster

Utomik makes playing games as easy as listening to music on Spotify. Gone are the days of long downloads, installations and never-ending patches. Unlike existing streaming services, Utomik runs the real game on your PC. A very small part is downloaded to launch you into the game, while the remaining data downloads during play.

Because Utomik runs the real game on your PC, you get the 100% original game experience, not a low quality video stream surrogate. Utomik's technology works both on old and new PC titles, without needing changes from the game developer – making it a zero effort to launch games on Utomik.

Unlimited Gaming for Everyone

Utomik will feature games in all popular genres, both new and classic titles. All classic games are playable within the monthly subscription, with new releases available for purchase as Premium games. Currently 80 games are under contract with many more in the pipeline for the commercial launch.
