Mason Games Announces Acquisition by Iglobsys Technology for US$1 Million


Mason Games Sdn. Bhd., a mobile game development studio today announced that it has been acquired by Iglobsys Technology Sdn. Bhd. for US$1 million. The acquisition, which took place one year after the establishment of Mason Games in July 2021, is to bolster the studio’s growth in various areas including embarking on their maiden blockchain game project. In addition, the studio plans to set up a game development office in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in Q4 2022.

Daryl Lau, CEO and Founder of Mason Games said, “It is exciting to start our journey with Iglobsys, a strategic partner that will help accelerate the growth of our young team. Iglobsys has vast experience in technologies and wide business networks throughout Asia which are beneficial as we try to carve out larger market footprints in mobile gaming, especially within Southeast Asia. We are grateful for the trust they have put in us.”

Meanwhile, Jackie Chong, Director at Iglobsys Technology said, “Iglobsys is pleased to have Mason Games onboard as a valued partner. We are confident that Mason Games is an excellent opportunity for us to enter the front-facing consumer business, especially with their potential to amass an extensive database of users over a short time with their immersive games.”

Moving forward, Mason Games will embark on more ambitious gaming projects, in particular casual and strategy games for both Android and iOS. This new focus requires further investment in talents to bolster the technical capabilities of the team as the new complex game genres require extensive development time and testing before they are ready for release.

“We hope to one day be able to help other gaming studios to pursue building more complex games that provide an engaging and fun gaming experience for everyone,” Daryl explained.
