ROMANIAN INDUSTRY REPORT 2021 2021-10-29T18:23:53+00:00

The State of the Romanian Game Developers Industry

The role of the Romanian Game Developers Association is to represent and promote the game development industry in Romania and to create opportunities for the local companies in this sector. One of the most important things that we can do as an independent third party organization is to keep track of the activity and development of the industry throughout the years and present such information to the public. This document aims to be the most
comprehensive overview of the game development industry in Romania, to date.  The report includes also a history of game development in Romania and general information about the global industry, for context. Last but not least, we’ve included a catalogue of games and companies, which should be helpful for anyone looking to understand and connect with local studios. We’re fully committed to our organization’s mission and we’ll continue to improve and update this report in the coming years, as a key tool for the continued promotion and support of our industry.
Catalin Butnariu,
