Computer games have become mainstream media, with nett earnings even surpassing that of the film industry. Production values are very high and costs of development are rising partly due to heavy demand, lack of specialised and qualified skilled workers, and the pressure to deliver more within an increasingly shorter amount of time. Hence, there is a need for people who are trained and competent in the workflow of game development with very specialized fields of studies. The games industry spans even to other areas like serious games, casual games, mobile games, simulations and virtual reality. It comes as no surprise then that more companies are now outsourcing their work to countries like Malaysia due to lower costs and a competitive standard of quality.
