"Iran has around 23 million gamers aged 3 to 40 years old based on a recent study the Iran Computer and Video Game Foundation carried out in 2016. This makes the Iranian market the number one market in the Middle East by an insane margin! More than one fourth of Iran’s population plays video games. The cost of developing games in Iran is lower, compared to other countries in the region and this makes it a good place for investment. Currently more than 140 game development companies are active in Iran focusing on developing mobile and PC game,” from the back cover.
