SGG Website Launch @ Singapore Indies 2018 Year-End Event

Year-end parties are plentiful, but nothing beats fun loving game devs coming together for a whacky and mysterious "Singapore Games Industry Award 2018", hosted by James Barnard & Gennadii Potapov from the Singapore Indie (Game Developers) group).

SGG was given some air time at the end of the event to shout out about our website and the #SGGamedevs and #SGGames directory which went live. It was a really pleasant surprise that JioPlayGame.com happened to be there and featured both the event and our mission as a registered games association!

The listing on our database is purely community driven and may not have every game/company listed. If you like to list a company or feature a game on our website, just follow the instructions in the following forms, fill them up and we will get it up in no time after some quick checks! (or you can also email us at hello@sgg.org.sg if you spot any errors too!)





These folks are serious! They even made an "official" logo, videos and trophies for the event!

Industry Day 2019

On 13th July, we held our second annual Industry Day; an event which aims to bridge the gap between education and development industries of games development and become a nurturing ground for Singapore-based talents to springboard their career in the industry.

The Industry Day was supported by Eliphant Pte Ltd, the organizers behind GameStart, and Impixel, an innovation space that aims to incubate and support the local games & tech industry. Close to 200 attendees (an increase of more than 60% from last year’s inaugural event)  showed up, including a Malaysian delegation of approximately 40 attendees from Camou Academy of Media Arts, Chicken Feet Studio (a studio the academy is incubating) and Glow Production.

The Industry Day had many veteran game creators share their experiences,  trials and tribulations, as well as giving valuable, diverse advice to the attendees.

Representing Southeast Asia in YANA’s #PlayApartTogether Initiative

COVID-19 has brought about tectonic shifts in the way the world interacts with one other, implementing work from home arrangements and home-based learning in efforts to control the spread of this highly contagious virus. We soon discovered that while some of us have embraced all-day PJs and more personal time, a home-based economy has also come with a number of social issues. Isolation, especially among those who live alone or are separated from loved ones, exacerbated feelings of loneliness, boredom and depression. In Singapore, we also have a large population of migrant workers whose living conditions were perfect for the virus to spread, and being far from home, can only rely on the goodwill of the government and Singaporeans to ensure that their well-being is taken care of.

So, when our friends at MDEC (Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation) invited us to be a part of the international YANA (You Are Not Alone) initiative, we jumped on board. YANA’s goal was to bring people together …
