Mighty Kingdom is the newest member of the IGEA

The Adelaide-based Mighty Kingdom is the newest member of the IGEA, or Interactive Games & Entertainment Association, the pair recently announced.

Founded in 2011, Mighty Kingdom has developed more than 20 titles, reaching more than 40 million players globally. Working across PC, mobile and console, the studio has worked on properties like Shopkins and worked with clients including LEGO and Disney.

“Mighty Kingdom is a terrific example of an Australian game developer that has gone from strength to strength not just in Adelaide but is also performing incredibly well globally,” Ron Curry, CEO of IGEA, said of the organisation’s newest member. “As we continue to advocate for the health of the video games industry in Australia, we are delighted to welcome the team at Mighty Kingdom to the association.”

“IGEA are a consistent and positive voice on behalf of the games development industry in Australia and provide valuable insights and links between publishers, platform holders, developers and government and we are delighted to join the organisation,” Phil Mayes, Founder and Director of Mighty Kingdom, added.

“The Australian game development industry has huge potential to flourish on the international stage. However, if we are to continue to compete, we must level the playing field against other countries like Canada, USA and the UK and secure funding through a variety of models that are only open to other creative and screen industries at present. Mighty Kingdom is pleased to add our voice to IGEA’s effective and transparent program, advocating for federal government support of the video game development industry.”

Congratulations to IGEA’s newest member!
