Over 780 exhibitors and 240,000 visitors, Tokyo Game Show (TGS) 2023 has officially come to an end. Proudly to say, Malaysia continues its ongoing pursuit by being the leading light for the game’s development in Southeast Asia.
For TGS2023, the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) collaborated with the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE) facilitated meetings with trading partners and global players from the digital games industry who are keen to work with Malaysian-based game developers at the Malaysia Pavilion.
The pavilion, operated from 21 till 24 September featured 16 Malaysian studios, all of whom are leaders in their respective focuses, games development and visual effects (VFX). All of them have worked on various stages when producing a videogame which is from pre-production, right up to publishing the game.
The 16 companies that were present at the TGS2023 are Acxyn; Ammobox Studios; Glow Production; Hide & Seeds Production; Illusionist Animation Studio; IXI Creatives; Kaigan Games; Magnus Games Studio; Quurk; Syncraft; Ten Ten Studio; Weyrdworks; The Illusion Picture; Dreamfact; Metal Brain Studio and Fly Studio.
MDEC, with its long-time support of the local games development sector, believes the showcase of experienced talents, deep expertise, and extreme creativity will solidify Malaysia’s position as the regional hub for video games production, animation and anything to do with the production journey of digital content.
“For the longest time, MDEC gave its all to help those within the digital content production space and empower them with proper tools, expansive funding support and life-long words of encouragement.
“This list of 16 is just a small selection of what Malaysia has to truly offer and I’m confident that what is being shown at TGS2023 will serve as a repeating statement to reinforce the notion that it is ready for even more investments for this market segment,” added Mahadhir Aziz, Chief Executive Officer of MDEC.
