[ News, Science / Tech, May 6 2007] Microsoft Korea plans to support local game development

The Korean unit of U.S. software giant Microsoft Corp. said Tuesday (May 6) it signed a comprehensive agreement with a state-run game industry agency to provide help to local companies in developing games.

The agreement signed between Microsoft Korea and the Korea Game Industry Agency (KGIA) calls for the company to provide technical support for the multi-platform game development of Korean game makers, the company said.

To this end, Microsoft Korea plans to set up a technical support center, dubbed the "game incubation lab," inside KGIA within the first half of the year. It would run programs such as providing technical training for game development.
