Xsolla has teamed up with Curine Ventures to launch the Xsolla Curine Academy in Kuala Lumpur. Announced at the MYDCF event organized by MDEC, this innovative initiative aims to empower local talent within the video game industry in Malaysia.

A Platform for Nurturing Talent

The Xsolla Curine Academy is an ambitious program that equips aspiring game developers with vital industry skills. By offering comprehensive courses that last 4 or 12 months, the Academy aims to cover various dimensions of game development, from marketing and project management to programming and quality assurance. The Academy promises to bridge the gap between talent and opportunity in the local gaming ecosystem through a curated curriculum that aligns with global industry standards.

Game Incubator Program: Elevating Development Skills

Apart from the Academy, the team is rolling out a Game Incubator program offering 4- or 12-month options. This will include focused workshops and insightful lectures by seasoned professionals in the industry. This incubator program aims to raise the bar for game development in Malaysia, providing a platform for aspiring creators to translate their visions into playable realities.

Strategic Partnerships: The Xsolla Funding Club and Accelerator

In a significant development, the Xsolla Funding Club and Accelerator will be integrated with the Xsolla Curine Academy, offering an extensive network of over 180 investors and publishers. These partnerships will share invaluable experience from launching indie games such as Fix Fox, Toy Tactics, and Flame Keeper. This synergistic collaboration emphasizes the team's dedication to promoting innovation and talent in the gaming industry.

A Message from our Executives

Chris Hewish, CEO of Xsolla, expressed the company's enthusiasm for the new venture, stating, "In Kuala Lumpur, we recognize a gap between local talent and the industry opportunities available to them. The launch of Xsolla Curine Academy is a monumental step towards bridging that gap. We're laying the foundation for a robust gaming community in Malaysia, and it's our way of giving back to a community that has generously supported us."‍
