Amber The Romanian Game Development Agency Announces Presence in Taiwan and the Philippines

Bucharest, 20th September, 2023 – Amber, a game development agency based in Bucharest with offices worldwide, announces the opening of its first studios in Asia: Taiwan and the Philippines. The addition of the new locations is part of the strategy to accelerate the company's global expansion, following its investment round at the end of last year. Amber started to expand internationally in 2020 with its presence in Mexico and has quickly established a global footprint. Taipei and Manila add to the list of cities where Amber maintains an active presence around the world: Bucharest, Botoșani, Montreal, Guadalajara, Kyiv, Warsaw, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

"The Asian market has always been on our development roadmap for several reasons," stated Jaime Gine, CEO of Amber. "First and foremost, we have been attracted by the extremely talented people who can augment our development capabilities and help us become better at creating games. At the same time, being present on a new continent allows us to respond to the needs of our clients more quickly and efficiently."

Amber Taiwan will focus on specializations such as art, programming and game design, with the studio aiming to increase Amber's expertise in AAA game development. The Taipei office currently operates with 14 specialists, led by Jason Chein, its General Manager.

Jason is a veteran of the video game industry, experienced in building teams, products and services. He has held executive positions at Fortune 500 companies and led strategic initiatives ranging from the launch of Amazon's gaming services, the growth of Electronic Arts in China, to the entry of Xbox 360 in Asia.

Amber Philippines will focus on development services such as quality assurance, localization, certification, player support and art. The Manila office currently operates with over 50 specialists, led by Mel Songco, its General Manager, and aims to add more services and disciplines in the near future.

Mel has held a variety of global and regional leadership positions for multinational companies in the creative and IT industries, strategizing with governments, regulators and industry leaders on how to build and scale business ecosystems in emerging markets. Prior to joining Amber, he led the Unity Center of Excellence in the Philippines and held senior roles with Electronic Arts, Activision Blizzard, Vivendi Games and InMobi.
