Nurturing Future Malaysian Game Developers - The Ins And Outs

Malaysian indie game developer Sophie Azlan has blazed a trail in the traditionally male-dominated gamedev space since she emerged on the scene. Currently a developer involved in several indie projects in Malaysia's burgeoning gaming industry and a lecturer of game development at UOW Malaysia, she aims to leverage on her experiences in both spaces to act as a bridge between the country's emerging talent and studios.

On GGWP this week, we talk to Sophie about her exciting career so far, her experiences being an educator in the fast-growing space, the sustainability of the profession in an industry that's seen its fair share of issues recently, as well as her hopes for the future of the South East Asian video game industry, and some homegrown studios and games to check out for anyone aspiring to get into the industry.
