The IMGA SEA is very excited to announce the opening of its call for entries, in partnership with Eliphant, the organiser of GameStart Asia! Mobile and VR game developers, studios and publishers based in Southeast Asia are invited to enter their games.
Submitted games will be played by an online jury that will decide which nominees move on to become finalists. A jury made up of the best gaming experts in Southeast Asia will then select winners. Awarded games will automatically have a chance to win another prize during the 14th IMGA Global edition in San Francisco. To be considered for nomination, submitted games must have been released after May 2016, or have not yet been published.
We are looking forward to discovering great new games coming from all of these countries: Brunei, Cambodia, East Timor, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, and Taiwan. The deadline for entries is 31 July, 2017.
You can find here the general rules of the competition.
In the inaugural IMGA SEA competition last year, nearly 300 games were submitted from eight different countries. A total of 79 games were nominated as finalists, and 11 winning developers were awarded. The IMGA SEA revealed amazing games like Sara is Missing or Sky Garden: Farm in Paradise.
