“Kids and young gamers today are interacting with games like never before. They don’t just want to play — they want to create, to build, to have control of the world they play in,” said Jess Lebow, executive producer and Co-Founder, uGen Inc. “Our studio is extremely proud to have developed a platform that gives gamers, budding developers and creators alike the opportunity to play and socialize through user-generated games across multiple platforms. If the incredibly innovative and creative efforts of our early testing is any indication, we can’t wait to see what the Q.U.I.R.K. community will do with the all of the new assets and improved building tools coming in our Summer expansion!”
A year in development, Q.U.I.R.K. is the first game release from uGen World. The 14 person company has recently secured $3M in Series A funding, led by IGG, a developer and publisher of mobile games with a strong global presence and international customer base.
