MoAnima Bullish About Game Outsourcing in the Philippines

MANILA—April 24, 2009—Fresh from its stint as a participant in the recently concluded 2009 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco last month, MoAnima is confident that the Philippines will emerge as one of the leading global outsource destination for the games industry. This year, more than 17,000 game industry professionals took part in world’s largest industry-only event.

As a Filipino gaming outsource company, MoAnima proudly represented the Philippines in a series of meetings with leading game developers, publishers and other luminaries in the field. Apart from meeting with key executives from leading game developers and publishers, MoAnima also attended several lectures, panels, tutorials, and roundtable discussions in San Francisco’s Moscone Convention Center.

During the course of the meetings with the industry professionals, MoAnima has received positive feedback from gaming companies outsourcing to the Philippines. In addition to excellent English language skills, Filipinos are fast learners when it comes to mastering complex software. Over the past years, the Philippines has gained a reputation for its dedication and high level of quality when working on 3D graphics and animation.

Also well-represented in the conference was the Asian game development industry. One thousand delegates came from Asia to participate in the conference. The delegates from Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, India, and China came to represent the key gaming markets in the region. MoAnima is on of the handful of representatives from the Philippines.

“We believe that the Philippines is ideally suited to this industry.

We have the creative talent, good English communication skills, and affinity for US culture,” said MoAnima Director, Manny Ayala. Although the economic recession has weighed down heavily on other sectors, the gaming industry has proven to be quite resilient thanks to more people investing in home-based forms of entertainment.
