Mason Games Sdn. Bhd., a mobile game development studio announced Thursday that it has been acquired by Iglobsys Technology Sdn. Bhd. for $1 million.

The acquisition, which took place one year after the establishment of Mason Games in July 2021, is to bolster the studio’s growth in various areas including embarking on their maiden blockchain game project, Mason Games said in a statement.

In addition, the studio plans to set up a game development office in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in the fourth quarter of 2022.

“It is exciting to start our journey with Iglobsys, a strategic partner that will help accelerate the growth of our young team,

“Iglobsys has vast experience in technologies and wide business networks throughout Asia which are beneficial as we try to carve out larger market footprints in mobile gaming, especially within Southeast Asia. We are grateful for the trust they have put in us,” said Daryl Lau, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Mason Games.

“We hope to one day be able to help other gaming studios to pursue building more complex games that provide an engaging and fun gaming experience for everyone,” he added.

Moving forward, Mason Games will embark on more ambitious gaming projects, in particular casual and strategy games for both Android and iOS.

This new focus requires further investment in talents to bolster the technical capabilities of the team as the new complex game genres require extensive development time and testing before they are ready for release.
