Gamico is located in Utrecht in the Netherlands. Its goal is to assist individuals and companies in creating exciting games on various platforms. It does so by participating in game development companies and by providing advise, giving lectures, and writing articles. The company is run by Mark Overmars who has extensive experience in the design and development of games, as a university professor, a hobbyist, and an entrepreneur.

We participate in the following companies:


CoolGames is an innovative casual games company situated in Amsterdam. It was formed by a merger of my company Tingly Games and BoosterMedia. We create all our games in HTML5 and sell them to game portals and as apps. We also create branded versions of games for e.g. marketing purposes. During the past years we developed over 50 casual games.


Gamico also participates in the Dutch company Qlvr. This company designs and produces serious games and apps for health and education. Qlvr is dedicated to creating serious games and apps that work well, look great and are fun to use. Above all, Qlvr loves to create products that really matter to users.

YoYo Games

From 1998 till 2006 Gamico developed the first versions of the GameMaker software. The development of the tool has since been taken over by the company YoYo Games. Gamico used to participate in that company but is no longer involved.
