As game developers are on the look for their next blockbuster success game launch, many of them are testing new grounds instead of the traditional crowded markets of Korea, Europe, Japan, China and USA. Emerging markets such as Latin America and the Arab World are the new unconquered dungeons that hold considerable hope for daring game developers to discover, besiege and gain all the loot.
Game Power 7 along with some brave Korean companies, started the adventure of discovering the dungeon of the Arab World online gaming 6 years ago. The adventure produced some happy stories as well as unhappy ones, but the biggest outcome of this adventure is the rich experience and information about this mysterious, loot abundant and challenging market.

This presentation delivered during Korean Game Developers 2013 in an attempt from Game Power 7 to share the experience it gained through operating as an online game publisher in the Arab region, MENA. The Arab online and mobile game market is an emerging one with a lot of challenges and opportunities.

The presentation starts with explaining the region demographic and geographic information, along with Internet numbers and potential market for online gaming. Later, the challenges that face online game operators are discussed in full details.
