About Uken Games

Our Story

Mark Lampert and Chris Ye launched their first game, Superheroes Alliance, on Facebook in 2009, and Uken was born. Shortly after, Uken expanded to mobile phones and launched games on the iOS, Android, Blackberry, Amazon and Windows Phone platforms. Uken was a pioneering studio to design games that are truly cross platform creating a seamless experience for users. Today Uken offers ten games across different platforms and generates revenue from in game purchases. Uken competes with much larger studios but it’s smaller and agile structure allows for experimentation with new ideas and quick responses to the marketplace. We have a quirky culture that fosters creativity, collaboration, quality ideas and a data driven mindset. We believe in moving quickly and improving constantly as seen in the updates we make to our games, internal technologies, team collaborations, transparency, curiosity and learning.
