This week we have been attending Mobile Game Asia in Kuala Lumpur where we met talented developers, incredible studios and industry key players. With $539,5 million game revenues and over 14 million mobile players (Newzoo), Malaysia is the new rising star of the gaming industry in Asia!
For the first edition of its awards in Southeast Asia, the IMGA has partnered with MDEC, the national agency that promotes Malaysia’s digital economy.
“2016 has been an incredible year for the Games industry in Malaysia, where we have seen accelerated growth of multiple local game companies, success stories emerging from game startups and multiple recognitions at both local and regional platforms.
Mobile Game Asia (MGA) 2016 in Kuala Lumpur is another great opportunity for the local and regional companies to network, share knowledge and exchange ideas on the latest industry trends. I am glad to see more and more developers from the SEA Game Industry get connected in an avenue where we can work together to build the industry for the region as a whole”, commented Hasnul Hadi Samsudin, Director of Creative Content & Technologies Division at MDEC.
