Who We Are
Playomic UG was established in Hamburg on October 2010 by two handsome chaps in order to fill a niche – games for funny, clever and attractive adults. But seriously, we believe that adults are poorly served by the games industry, as the majority of its output requires too much time, effort, and is simply not interesting or particularly relevant to many adults. We strongly believe that the problem is not the computer games medium itself, but rather the game industry’s inability to understand and serve this niche.
