The government of Malta launched a strategy for digital games today. It felt amazing to be present when first the prime minister of Malta, and then the minister of Finance, declared that they will put substantial effort into helping a budding games industry to grow. This really is the place to be.

Currently TRC is getting established. They are about to recruit quite a lot of people, especially students from the University of Malta. We will also establish a trainee program together. Here is more, from TRC: http://www.trcmediagroup.com

I can ask around if there is a compiled list somewhere of game companies on Malta
