Our good friends at Fundeavour, which we have collaborated for the Gamer Of The Week features, will be there, including Raijinshi, which we have featured before. Streamline Studios, one the big developers based in Malaysia, have also been featured here.

The event is focused on the game industry. While anyone can register to join the event here, priority is made for games industry professionals.

MDEC has made its own game industry event last year with Level Up KL. It’s good to see the industry getting more matured with events like this happening, as it will benefit us gamers in the long run with more games being developed and better events being organised to suit our needs.
