“Vietnam today is already the out-sourcing center for many large game developers such as Gameloft. However, beyond that we see a very vibrant indie developer community and gaming scene within Vietnam. There are a large number of small mobile game developers who are producing quality games not seen a few years ago. Among mobile game consumers, we also believe that the market is poised for take-off with the large increase in smartphone penetration in the last 1 year. As smartphone usage spreads, Vietnam is an exciting place to be in” said Maxim de Wit, VP of International GMGC.
