    SOMETHING OLD

  • Underdogs Inc. is here

    for all the underdogs extraordinaire out there

    Awaken your sleeping asset

    There are countless game apps that are no longer in service, or projects that are cancelled before even hitting the market. These games, no matter how much effort and passion you put in them, sadly, can become quickly forgotten. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean they have no value.

     

    The main purpose of us, Underdogs Inc., is to revive those sleeping assets with high potential. We see opportunities in them. We believe, we can create something new out of the old, adding new value to existing value.

    Why us, the Underdogs?

    Game-wise, our team members have been involved with developing and consulting of more than 200 game titles (mostly with freemium models). Many of them are considered to be commercial successes, scoring more than $100M~ in sales monthly in mainly Japanese market, where we know best, with our professional services in game design, user experiences, data analysis, monetization design and others.

     

    We are quick to find the strong and weak points of the developer and how to enrich, nurture and overcome them, even including the optimisation of the development/operating process. With our extensive knowledge accumulated over the years, we have developed a unique method that will support our clients and partners to build their unique idea into a solid, profitable and most importantly, FUN product that users will absolutely love.

     

    If you are looking for the one who will bring back life to your creation, here we are.
