Said one jury member of the 2nd IMGA SEA: “Generally speaking we are happy to see important improvements in the quality of games created in Southeast Asia and we are hoping to see and award real innovation from the region in the future. The winning games achieved a high level of polish and we expect that to be a standard for games that are released be it from big or small teams. This can avoid early failure in the marketplace, build success and win awards!”
