Today's main Gamasutra feature article (free reg. req.) Terence Tan takes a close look at the game industry in South-East Asia concentrating on four particular countries (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines) in the region which are often ignored when discussing game development. For each country, Terence covers some of the most prominent game development companies in the country, what types of products these companies are developing, the colleges that are providing game development specific coursework, and what incentives the governments in these countries are providing. Tan comments in the article: "South-East Asia has quickly moved its industry from agriculture to manufacturing, taking only 20-odd years. South-East Asia's largest trading partner is the U.S., with between 10-20% of its goods being exported. Many countries in South-East Asia now realize the need to shift their economies from a manufacturing base to a more service-oriented industry, and have begun governmental programs to stimulate that transition." You can now read the full Gamasutra feature on the subject (free registration required.)
