SEA in Games: Philippines Sometimes, game developers draw inspiration from certain landscapes without revealing it in the final game. Our next game in this series is such a good example. Did you know it is possible to visit the #Philippines in TEKKEN 7? We admit it's not an easy guess as the stage is just called 'Jungle Outpost'.

Happy #BonifacioDay to all our fellow Pinoy and Pinay gamers! Today is the national holiday to commemorate the birthday of the Philippine's national hero Andrés Bonifacio, who started the Philippine Revolution of 1896 against the Spanish Empire. Probably the coolest representation of Bonifacio can be found in Ranida Games' Bayani - Fighting Game. In this culturally inspired fighting game, you can choose the character Dre whose fictional backstory brought him back to land of living. #gamescomasia #gamescomasia2020 #bayani #fightinggame #andresbonifacio

Let that potential come to fruition by exhibiting at #gamescomasia next October 2020. AAA games, leading publishers, esports and the big leagues - all in one place.

There's a lot in gaming happening in South Korea this week so let's share some insights into the Korean gaming scene! With $ 5.6 billion in revenue and an incredible 28.9 million players, South Korea ranks #4 among the greatest gaming markets worldwide. ""PC Bangs"" (computer game rooms or LAN shops like in Singapore) are aplenty and esports tournaments are regularly televised. It is little wonder that some of the top esports teams in the world are from South Korea. #StarCraft, #LeagueofLegends anyone? https://seoulz.com/top-10-most-popular-esports-in-korea-best-of-2019/ #gamescomasia #gamescomasia2020

Even today, the #gaming scene is often viewed as predominantly male. However, a large number of studies show that the proportion of female players and developers is significantly larger and is steadily increasing. This is not a new development: women have been playing a vital role in the production of games for a long time. That's why it's all the more important for women to be involved in gaming and to hear more of their contribution. In #Indonesia, gaming startup Touchten Games recently received a grant to do just that. https://www.techinasia.com/touchten-secures-funding #gamescomasia #gamescomasia2020 #CYAatgamescomasia #Girlsbehindthegames #womeningaming #gamedev #asiapacific

Happy Birthday #Singapore! The island city-state celebrates its 54th year of independence - we're pretty young. Here's some trivia about Singapore: 1. Singapore, or The Lion City (no actual lions), was founded and colonised by the British in 1819. We celebrate our bicentennial this 2019 too. 2. Singapore is a multi-racial country with 4 main races - Chinese, Malay, Indian, and Eurasian - and 4 main spoken languages - English (first language), Malay (national language), Mandarin, and Tamil. 3. Singaporeans are fast walkers. On average, we walk a distance of 18 metres in 10.55 seconds. That’s approximately 6.15km in an hour! We're called "fast-paced" for a reason. 4. We are our own city, state, and country. However, we have built our foundations as a migrant country, with early settlers coming from China, India, the Malay Archipelago and beyond. 5. Singapore has been featured in a number of international films and games such as Call of Duty, Battlefied, Pirates of the Caribbean, Westworld, and more. 6. Singapore's very own eSports team Team Flash gave us a first international GOLD at the 2018 EA Champions Cup (EACC) Spring for FIFA. Scythe, a Singaporean DOTA 2 team clinched third place in 2011. Five local gamers also became the first women’s team from Singapore to qualify for the grand finals of the World Electronic Sports Games (WESG).
