Global Gaming

This project on the Hong Kong game industries is funded by the the Research Grant Committee of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR). Its project leaders are Anthony Fung, Matthew Chew and John Erni. David Nieborg and I are responsible for the mapping of the European game industries.

Given the increasing prominence of game industry and cases of success in many Asian countries, this project will examine the opportunities of the Hong Kong game industry, in particular, in the China and Asian markets. The project will examine the major issues and challenges of the local game industry, including its potential social effects, and then propose possible regulations, cultural policies and strategies for development. Given that the ever-increasing crossover between game industry and other local related creative industries (music, film and new media industries), the project also proposes strategies for the development of the entire creative industry in Hong Kong.
