Iran Computer and Video Games Foundation

Iran Computer and Video Games Foundation is a non-government cultural organization which operates under the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance. Its main responsibility is supporting the process of game development and building its industry capacity in Iran.  Iran Computer and Video Games Foundation incudes members who are active and experienced in the games industry and many other fields, including: cultural policies, market provisions, training, research and game development.

 

Goals and Expectations

The main goal for this event is to create contact between computer game developers in Iran and international publishing companies.

The games industry in Iran has more than a decade’s worth of experience and has created hundreds of fascinating games, yet it has never had an opportunity to enter the international market. It is TGC’s intention to create this opportunity for the first time for Iranian game developers.

The community of game developers in Iran is incredibly large and active and they have always been of interest to international publishers. At TGC, these companies, can finally, by coming to Iran and seeing up close the talents and potentials of Iranian game developers and the Iranian games market, introduce even more growth to the games industry in this country.
