Singapore – Singapore’s effort to build a sustainable ecosystem for the game industry gains momentum with a Call for Proposals (CFP) from four game publishers for innovative game products. Together with Activate Interactive, Garena Interactive, Infocomm Asia Holdings (IAH Games) and Mikoishi Pte Ltd, the Media Development Authority of Singapore (MDA) is seeking game proposals which have the potential to be deployed and commercialised eventually on any of the four game publishers’ platforms. The four publishing partners are committed to offer various facets of their capabilities to collaborate with companies or individuals that have outstanding concepts. For a start, the four publishing partners will be supporting the local game developers with a combined offering of a 35 million user base and access to markets in more than 20 countries, which includes the United.States, Europe and Asia. In addition, the four publishing partners will help market the commercialised game products in these markets as well as provide technology and infrastructural support such as game engine and global sales and payment channels. Under this CFP, the publishing partners and MDA will invest in proposals that are approved by an evaluation panel. Interested parties are welcomed to send in their proposals by 31 July 2009 on how they can develop innovative games through the use of these publishers’ platforms or even their services.
