WHAT IS GAMISTAN?

You may have not heard of Gamistan. It is made up of two parts: “game”, and “stan” (a suffix used in Persian and Hindu-European languages for location) and is used to refer to a great geographical area of the video games industry.

Gamistan is not a politically, or geographically bordered area, but it is a very vast zone enthusiastically intending to cooperate and scale with the rest of the world in the video games industry. 33 countries, from India to Morocco, from Kazakhstan to Yemen, and others like Turkey and Egypt are parts of the area. More than 2 billion people reside in Gamistan area, 40 percent of whom play games on a daily basis.

The main objective of the Gamistan Awards is to create opportunities for developers who are looking to find publishers, distributers or investors for their projects. Therefore, previously published games with satisfactory results in the market, who thus are not in need of investors or publishers, shall not enter the competition.
