New educational mobile games studio Ultra Creative Games sets up shop in Vancouver

Educational mobile game developer Ultra Creative Games has opened its doors in Vancouver to develop games for kids.

The studio is headed up by CEO Matthew Tomporowski, who founded the company in May 2017. He has held roles at EA and DeNA and was also a senior game designer at IGG.

Ultra Creative is headquartered in the Gasworks district of Vancouver and currently employs 13 staff. It is aiming to create a variety of games across different genres with a focus on education.

Getting creative

"Ultra Creative Games is here to bridge the gap the currently exists between the highest quality games and the highest quality educational software," said Tomporowski.

"Our goal is to create fun games that also help kids get a leg up in the areas of math and spelling. We know that as long as kids are engaged and having fun, they enjoy math and spelling challenges just as much as any other game mechanic."

2018 could see several educational games launching from various studios. Lightneer, the studio behind Big Bang Legends, is gearing up to launch its game soon following a $5 million seed funding round back in August 2017.
