Nosotek is known for developing computer games for various platforms, such as iPhone, j2me and Wii; including Pyongyang Racer, a browser-based racing video game developed in 2012, to promote tourism to North Korea.[1]

Nosotek's main target market is Europe, but there also have been rumors that Nosotek also has been developing games for the US based News Corporation.[2]
