17 years ago, our founder decided to start a mobile game company called IUGO, which in Latin means “to connect”. His vision was boldly to do just that; connect people through mobile games. Today we are the longest standing mobile gaming company in Canada with a wide variety of games under our belts including The Walking Dead: Road to Survival, PvPets, Middle-earth: Shadow of War and many more. Our team is full of intelligent and passionate foodies, beer connoisseurs, thrill seekers, musicians, fitness fanatics, leaders, dreamers and of course - GAMERS!
