About Us

about-us

Founded in 2003 by Hong Yee Wong to connect people through mobile games, IUGO takes its name from that vision, for the Latin word for ‘Connect’. When we first started, mobile phones had screens the size of a large postage stamp, but the vision continued to drive our development and our desire to create exceptional experiences in the mobile gaming space.

Over 16 years later, we are still connecting people through mobile games, as Canada’s longest-standing Mobile Games Company, and by being involved in our community, with Gamers Gather Grub Food Drive, BCIT Scholarships, and Extra Life. We are also proud members of DigiBC, working to promote the game industry here at home.

Our Vancouver-based studio has earned a solid reputation for producing chart-topping titles for major global publishing partners, as well as achieving success with our own self-published original games. IUGO is now paving the way for the next wave of mobile and tablet gaming!
