Sue Youn and Ben Ansah successfully secured £50,000 in investment from Peter Jones for their Yogiyo Korean cooking range

Dragon’s Den inventors move into mobile development with ‘Flappy Bird-style runner’

A pair of entrepreneurs who successfully raised investment for their Korean cooking sauce on TV pitching show Dragon’s Den have announced their first game.

Sue Youn and Ben Ansah attracted £50,000 from Peter Jones on the BBC series last year, in return for a 33 per cent share of the Yogiyo range.

The sauce has since been picked up by Sainsbury’s and is currently seeking international distribution.

In the meantime, the business partners have seemingly found time to develop a free-to-play mobile game for iOS and Android.

Mrs Kim is described as a “Flappy Bird-style runner, where players take the role of a traditional Korean matriarch and must pursue her tyrannical son to give him the spanking he deserves”.

The “personal project” was reportedly created independently with the help of friends, students and technical advisors.

Take a look at the game below.
