Virtual SEA Announces Partnership with GameDevPH to Support Philippines Game Industry

March 7, 2023 | Andreas Betsche

We are excited to announce our new partnership with GameDevPH, a thriving community of game developers, professionals, students, hobbyists, and enthusiasts in the Philippines. GameDevPH started as a group chat in 2020 to help members find work during the pandemic. Since then, it has grown into a vibrant community of 500+ members and counting.

At GameDevPH, the goal is to support local creators, promote Filipino-made games, and provide resources for game developers. The community server is a platform for like-minded individuals to connect, collaborate, and learn from one another. By joining the GameDevPH Discord server, members can stay updated with industry-related events and job openings, discover local games, share their work, and engage in meaningful discussions with other game developers.

We believe this partnership will create exciting opportunities for the Virtual SEA community and GameDevPH. Our collaboration will help raise awareness of the Philippines game industry, showcasing the country’s talented creators and game developers.

We look forward to working closely with GameDevPH to support the growth of the Philippines game industry. This partnership is a testament to our commitment to empowering communities and promoting learning and collaboration. We invite everyone to join the GameDevPH community and be part of a growing network of game developers and enthusiasts.
