Last words

It is a proud situation to see PC and Console games coming out of our country in today’s years when the industry is on the rise with mobile games. Of course, creating a AAA game with a sudden leap and low budget is impossible. However, as we have seen examples, games that are strong in terms of art and storytelling can somehow achieve success.

In a scenario where you cannot produce games with big budgets and superior graphics, it is possible to make a game with strong mechanics and an immersive story under the conditions of our country. There is no reason why independent productions created by small but strong teams should not evolve into AAA games in the future. We hope that in the future, we will see great games with big budgets with the industry’s growth and the excellent evaluation of the investments received.
