Amman, Jordan – 20 December, 2019 – Tamatem, the leading mobile games publisher in the Arabic speaking market, is nominated for Best Publisher at Pocket Gamer’s Mobile Games Awards. The event which will be hosted at the prestigious BAFTA 195 Piccadilly in London, will take place on 22 January, 2019.
“It is a very proud moment for Tamatem to be nominated as Best Publisher at the Pocket Gamer Mobile Games Awards,” Hussam Hammo, CEO of Tamatem said. Being in the same category as industry moguls like Tencent and Voodoo is very humbling for us.”
The category of Best Publisher will highlight any company that has supported other developers in releasing a game on mobile devices during the last year. Whether through publishing support, marketing, co-development or investment. Over the years, Tamatem has partnered with developers from all over the world; including Game Insight, EZ Fun and Casualino to localize their games for the Arabic speaking market.
“We have been working very hard for the past five years to put the Middle East on the gaming map,” Hammo added. “Tamatem grew 200% in 2018 in comparison to previous years and such recognition will give us an extra push to grow even further.”
Tamatem is dedicated to publishing top-notch culturally relevant mobile games for the Arabic speaking market, through partnerships with international game developers and studios. With very little Arabic games on the App Store and more 360M Arabic smartphone users, there is a huge gap in the market.
Tamatem is nominated in the category of best publisher alongside; Annapurna Interactive, BoomBit, Tencent, Lion Studios, PlayStack, Round Zero, Scopely, Tilting Point and Voodoo. Other award categories include; Game of the Year, Best Developer, Best Indie Developer, Best Game Engine, Best Tools Provider, Best Advertising & UA and Pocket Gamer People’s Choice.
