You know what's overdue? Talking about the games industry in the Southeast Asia region, that's what. To be more specific, we'd like to explore the nuances of the indie game development scene one region at the time.
For this week, let's start with Singapore; since it's closest to the GameSpot Asia HQ. We talk to indie game developers Ian Gregory (Witching Hour Studios) and Gerald Tock (Inzen Studio, formerly from Nabi Studios) about the local scene. There's also some stuff about Ubisoft eyeballing THQ brands and some Mass Effect/Black Ops II PC copies cock-up.
