The international game contest, GNGWC, sponsored by KIPA, has been held for three years running in an effort to globalize online games produced in Korea.
GNGWC is the venue for finding out about the state-of-the-art online games developed by small and medium sized Korean game developers, and where developers can efficiently set up distribution channels for their products around the world.
These competitive pressures have made KIPA's GNGWC a critical venue for Korean game companies to prove the superiority of their products on the international stage.
KIPA and its official sponsor KT Corporation (CEO: Jungsu NAM) have set up base servers with full installations of their online infrastructures in six countries across the globe in order to support localization and marketing of the games for the GNGWC.
