Remember that meeting between Russian gaming industry representatives and members of Russian parliament? It did happen today, but no one from gaming industry showed up. Timing for this kind of event wasn’t great, because everyone already left for GDC.
So, this was again meeting between Russian gaming press and members of Russian parliament. They did agree that gaming industry could use some investments and even decided to create so-called “Games Academy” to help select Russian game developers for government investments.
Also, some people suggested awards for gamers, e-athletes and gaming press, e-sport events on federal TV and more patriotic games.
Hopefully next time someone from gaming industry will actually show up.
