KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Xsolla, a global video game commerce company with a robust and powerful set of tools and services designed specifically for the video game industry, announced at MYDCF organized by MDEC that it is launching Xsolla Curine Academy in collaboration with Curine Ventures.




The Xsolla Curine Academy is an initiative dedicated to nurturing and empowering local talent within the video game industry. Its goal is to provide game developers with a comprehensive, industry-leading program designed to equip them with the skills and knowledge necessary for a successful career in the industry. This program aligns with industry needs and adheres to the highest standards created in collaboration with global experts.

The Xsolla Curine Academy offers various programs for 4 and 12 months, where participants can expect a rigorous curriculum covering various aspects of game development, including marketing, project management, programming, art, quality assurance, business, publishing, and analytics, and industry-endorsed best practices that prepare developers for the competitive world. The mission is to bridge the gap between talent and opportunity, ultimately fostering growth within the local game development ecosystem.

It’s an investment in developing the skills and knowledge base of aspiring game developers in this region. But it’s also our way of giving back to a community that has generously supported us.
