Utomik, the unlimited play PC gaming subscription, officially launches today. This following our initial open beta launch in March of 2016.
We have grown from an independent startup with no industry support to having a library of over 750 games and 100+ publishing partners in a little over 2 years. That support includes Warner Bros. Games, Disney, SEGA, THQ Nordic, Epic Games, Curve Digital, IO Interactive and many more. It is more than any other subscription gaming platform out there and it is just the beginning.
Founded in 2014 by a small team of dedicated Dutch gamers, Utomik is a pioneering startup based in The Netherlands and California with offices in Eindhoven and Los Angeles. It is one of the first subscription based gaming platforms to hit the market. We are proud to be an integral part in bringing the Netflix and Spotify model to the world of video games.
As we are now officially launched, users get unlimited access to play over 750 games for USD 6.99 a month* or USD 9.99 a month for a four-person Family Plan. The launch will also include a new and improved client design.
Recent additions to our service include the Batman: Arkham series, Saints Row IV, Human: Fall Flat, Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, The Flame in the Flood, Furi and many more. With weekly new releases and 20+ games added a month, we ensure the selection remains fresh.

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, 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.”

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.
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.
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.
