Utomik said that its cloud gaming service is now available on Android devices, making Utomik cloud gaming more accessible to gamers.
The mission of the Eindhoven, Netherlands-based company is to make gaming accessible to everyone, so now it will bring its app and more than 200 cloud games to Android.
This means that someone with an Android phone or tablet can play a high-end indie game that would normally run on the PC.
To celebrate the Android debut, Utomik Cloud will be free throughout this weekend, giving everyone a chance to try out the app and its 200+ games on Android for themselves. Utomik will also be releasing several beloved indie games to its cloud subscription during and after the free weekend.

Join the GamesBeat community online, February 1-2, to explore the findings and emerging trends within the metaverse.
Those Android users who sign up for a subscription after trying the app during the Utomik Cloud Free Weekend can enjoy a lifetime 50% discount on their plan.
The cloud service can be enjoyed through the personal plan for $9.55, or €8.99 (full price), and the four-person family plan for $13.80, or €12.99 (full price), per month.
With the launch of Utomik Cloud on Android, a carefully selected number (200 or so) of the 1400-plus PC
games are made available on mobile devices (smartphones as well as tablets) running Android 9 or higher and will continue to grow every month.
Utomik just recently released its app on Samsung and LG 2021/2022 Smart TVs, and making their service available on Android as well is the next step in their goal to give everyone a chance to experience gaming on any device and wherever they want.
More than 200 games can be enjoyed using an on-screen controller layout mapped to each game in the cloud gaming service. This collection can be played by connecting a controller to your Android device. For the other games, special touch screen controls were developed.
“We at Utomik have been working for years to make gaming easier and more accessible to people from all walks of life,” Utomik CEO Doki Tops said in a statement. “First, by removing the need to invest in powerful but expensive hardware, and now by turning people’s mobile devices – which they already have – into gaming platforms using Utomik Cloud. We are proud of what we have achieved and look forward to our subscribers reaping the rewards of our hard work.”
Utomik said five new games will be released on Utomik Cloud for Android devices and Samsung and LG smart TVs. These games are Deliver us the Moon, Haven, Rogue Lords, RiME and The Surge.
And Utomik subscribers can expect five more games in the week after the Free Weekend, namely Corpse Party, Wolfstride, Star Renegades, Reverie Knights Tactics and Night Call.
Utomik’s cloud gaming service will initially support Android 9 and above. It will run from 720p to 1080p depending on the device/screen size, with a target of 30fps to 60fps depending on the type of game. With cloud gaming, Utomik offers an accessible gaming experience, allowing people to play whenever and wherever they want. Utomik Cloud is now available in the following countries, with many more to come:
- The Netherlands
- San Marino
- United Kingdom
- United States
