Southeast Asia’s finest in mobile gaming: Here are the nominees for the 13th Global IMGA Awards

February 2, 2017 | Andreas

With its 13th instalment the International Mobile Gaming Awards are looking for the best mobile games on a global scale. Competitors from all over the world submitted their games and now the nominees were announced. Among them are some international heavy-weights like Pokémon GO, Deus Ex Go, Super Mario Run or Telltale’s Batman. But this article is all about the nominees from Southeast Asia. How will they come off in this competition? Will last year’s surprise hits “Sara is Missing” or “Sky Garden” have a chance?

We will know by February 28th when the winners will be announced at the annual IMGA Global awards ceremony in San Francisco. There is a jury price and a people’s choice award, so users can vote for their favourites – which you should do right after reading this article.

Now, here are the nominees from the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia:
