The program under the 2nd GEPS lasts for one year, during which each of the 12 selected game start-ups receives promotional funding, trainings, professional guidance and two intern as game tester to support a newly launched original game (designated game), in addition to the promotion via the platform of "Taipei Game Show", with a view to enhancing the quality and profitability of these games and in turn further the development of Hong Kong’s game industry.

Due to the pandemic, The HKDEA set up the "Online Hong Kong Pavilion" in the "Taipei Game Show 2021" so that the 12 selected game start-ups could still promote their designated games without flying to Taipei in person. This could help them seize the opportunity to proactively promote their original games and Hong Kong’s game culture to game developers and publishers from other parts of the world and further widen the business opportunities for Hong Kong’s game industry.

Hong Kong’s game industry has always been known for its diversity, creativity and international flavour. As a world-class metropolis with an eclectic blend of Chinese and Western cultures, the city produces innovative games of all genres, drawing inspiration from East to West, and popular Hong Kong comics and animation titles. Besides targeting the local market, which has an annual turnover of about HKD 7 billion, many Hong Kong-made games have also made successful forays into the markets abroad with excellent results.

Mr. Gabriel Pang, Chairman of The HKDEA, said, "We are so glad to set up the ‘Online Hong Kong Pavilion’ in the ‘Taipei Game Show 2021’ despite the COVID-19 pandemic. In the Pavilion, the original games of 12 excellent Hong Kong game start-ups will be introduced in a round-the-clock manner. We expect that these game companies can have a fruitful cultural exchange online with their counterparts and meet the buyers and potential partners from other countries and regions, while providing a first-hand experience of Hong Kong’s creative original games to all the exhibitors and visitors of the ‘Taipei Game Show’."

The physical "Taipei Game Show 2021" is held from 28th to 31st January 2021 at Nangang Exhibition Center Hall 1.
