Game Developers Conference
Lomay represented Africa at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in March in San Francisco.
This is the largest video game industry event in the world.
Along with representatives from the Republic of the Philippines, Colombia, and other emerging countries around the world, Matthieu Rabehaja, co-founder of Malagasy startup LOMAY, held a conference on the theme » #1ReasonToBe in the game industry « . During this conference he told the story of his startup’s adventures in conquering the video game industry. Despite the obstacles it faced ( the lack of infrastructure, the vagaries of the internet connection and power, etc … , as well as the pressure of having to create a game in a limited time ), the team has always given the best of itself, always trying to make the impossible possible, said Rabehaja. The team has put all these efforts into living their passion and « making video game development their business ». Impressed by his speech, the audience rose to applaud and congratulate the Malagasy startup’s journey.
Despite the factors that handicap the country, this event did not fail to make the world aware of Madagascar’s potential.
