Welcome to Virtual SEA – Home of Southeast Asian gaming culture!

On this website, we cover all kinds of video games from all over Southeast Asia* developed by Southeast Asian game studios (usually indies). We publish reviews, previews, news and reports linked to Southeast Asian gaming culture in English language. Virtual SEA is a private and non-profit project. We are independent writers not associated to any company. Our goal is to show the world that Southeast Asian indie developers make marvellous games with often interesting local input and clever new ideas. We strongly believe that the Southeast Asian games market will become one of the biggest and most important markets in the world and Virtual SEA is your first step into it.

Enjoy the virtual gaming worlds of Southeast Asia! Please feel free to leave any comments or suggestion through our contact page.

Andreas founded Virtual SEA in early 2016 after doing some research on Cambodian mobile games. Having a background in Southeast Asia studies, he soon discovered other gems from that region leading to this website. Since he was a child, games were a vital part of his life, so here are his top three games: Terranigma (Tenchi Souzou), Gothic, Beyond Good & Evil

lunaLuna is an indie game developer and author from Berlin. She’s all into games, comics and other geeky stuff. On Virtual SEA, she reviews games and occasionally irons out Andreas’ many spelling and grammar mistakes. Her top three games are: Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals (Lufia), Seiken Densetsu 2&3 (Secret of Mana & Secret of Mana 2), The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

  1. Wonderful idea on bringing more attention to SEA games and gamers 🙂 We welcome you with open arms from the OMGeek community, fellow SEA gamers ourselves. Hope to play some games with you in our community.
