JEDDAH: Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Communications and Information Technology has launched its “ThinkTech” initiative to support the e-gaming sector by sharing expertise from around the world.
In partnership with the Saudi Esports Federation and Zain, the ministry held a virtual forum on Saturday where five new initiatives were launched as part of the “Gamers Without Borders” tournament announcement.
Last year, over 15,000 coders, engineers and designers from 80 countries joined The Global Hack as part of the Gamers Without Borders initiative. It trained more than 3,400 people in game development through the “Make and Play” competition.
The fourth initiative, “ThinkTech Talk,” targets experts in game development, investors, and business entrepreneurs in the sector. It revealed the ideas and expertise of developers, who spoke about their experiences in creating e-games while contributing to spreading awareness about the industry and development of e-games.
