Insecure: The Come-Up Game

It’s Season Six, Starring You! Just like Issa Dee, live your life in LA and connect with your inner Mirror B*tch to hype yourself up and build rap verses to express how you feel.

Our Studio

Glow Up Games is founded in the belief of the narrative power of voices outside the mainstream.

CEO Mitu Khandaker and CXO Latoya PetersonΒ  spent the last decade shaping entertainment through innovative applications of technology and distinctive storytelling. By combining our talents, we seek to advance the industry by centering overlooked voices and leveraging new technologies to craft more powerful and playful experiences.

In spite of the changing demographics of our increasingly global audience, there is still far too much we do not know about our player base. The mobile games industry grew to $179 billion in 2020, the AR market is forecast to fetch close to $70 billion by 2023. While women represent at least 52% of the mobile games market, and an estimated 43% of AR/VR device owners, there is frustratingly little known about what women want to play and why. Even less is known about the habits and practices of players of color.

Glow Up Games aims to provide answers.

Content

Glow Up Games uses our backgrounds in technology and our cultural upbringings to create novel experiences. We are dedicated to telling diverse stories because we know diverse stories invite everyone to the table. We are, first and foremost, a game studio and the main thing we create are games.

Data

The R & D side of Glow Up Games incorporates a data driven approach to understanding emergent (and established) markets, to quantifying preferences and tastes of many different types of players, and to publish research on gaming, play, gender, and race that advances the entire field.

Platform

As we gather more data about our players and understand their desires better through their engagement with our games, we will grow to being a platform to connect diverse content to diverse consumers through publishing and partnerships.
