Jordan Aims To Score Big In Global Gaming Industry
Amman, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 15th Nov, 2023) For many, gaming is a waste of time. Hours lost staring at glowing screens. But Jordan is betting on its youth to capture a slice of a lucrative global market.
At the Jordan Gaming Lab, Nasser Kasabreh, 21, sits behind his computer, working on a game he has been developing over the past months.
Set up in 2011, the lab aims to help young people develop and design their own games.
With the support of the King Abdullah II Fund For Development, it provides modern equipment and free educational courses to young people aged nine and above on all aspects of the gaming industry from manufacturing, to production, and even marketing.
Expectations are the market will only grow with the development of cloud gaming, still in its early stages, and even virtual reality.
