SEA Game Awards 2020 Nominees – Malaysia

RaceRoom Mobile (aka GTR3 Mobile) by AeonSparx Interactive

Racecar driving simulator – but make it mobile. RaceRoom Mobile is a racing simulation game that gives you access to international race series like ADAC GT Masters, DTM and WTCC. As well as a selection of 150+ legendary race cars and 40+ world-renowned race tracks. Play in single-player or race against your friends in multiplayer mode.

I’m not sure what’s up with this game is it just a port? Should it even be on this list? Let me know in the comments below or give me a link to find out more about it.


Rokudo by Heaven Tales Entertainment

I’m a huge fan of Rokudo eventhough I’m terrible at platforming games. Rokudo was a nominee at last year’s SEA Game Awards and eventhough it didn’t win I think it still deserved a highlight. So we put it in a special article called ‘Games that celebrate Southeast Asian Culture’ – tab it open here.

Rokudo is a 2D action platformer set in the six realms of the Japanese afterlife. In these realms that you’ll be fighting your way through supernatural creatures from all over Asian lore for you to battle. From the Gong Goi from Thailand, the Pocong from Indonesia and even the Jiangshi from Chinese lore. There are 30 different Yokai and other creatures for you to explore and battle the realms in. The game looks fantastic, sound and music are on point. Not to mention that Rokudo highlights all of the amazing culture, myths and legends from Asia. We don’t know when the game is set to come out but be sure that we’ll update you once we know.


Short Creepy Tales: 7PM by Cellar Vault Games

Short Creepy Tales: 7 PM is the first instalment of a horror anthology by Cellar Vault Games. We saw their first game The Plight back in 2017 and The Long Road Ahead last year. This dev focuses on the scariest of horror genres – Asian ghosts and legends. 7 PM is set during the Hungry Ghost Festival, a time when the gates of Hell are open. Or so Chinese legend says. A deceptively charming looking papercraft game, this game is plenty scary with puzzles for you to solve and a choose your own storyline mechanic. Check out our full Short Creepy Tales: 7 PM review here.

Short Creepy Tales: 7 PM by Cellar Vault Games is out now on Steam.


SIMULACRA 2 by Kaigan Games

Devs of the “lost phone horror” genre, Simulacra 2 is the sequel to their previous game Simulacra (check out our review here). In this game, you work with Detective Murilo to uncover the mysterious death of a Kimera influencer, Maya Crane. Her phone appears to be intentionally wiped, and her cause of death seems… unnatural. You are given her phone to conduct an unsanctioned police investigation, and piece together the mystery surrounding her death. Solve the case before whatever happened to Maya… happens again.

If you’re a fan of immersive horror mystery then you can do no better than checking out the Simulacra series. Right now the Simulacra series is on sale on Steam and you can even get it in a bundle. My personal opinion though, get it on the phone for the best experience.


Zombie Soup by AeonSparx Interactive

ZombieSoup was a good time when we played it at last year’s Level Up KL 2019. It’s a fast-paced top-down shooter that follows the adventures of Ricky, a young college freshman on a backpacking trip during the summer break. While seeking to explore the world he inadvertently finds himself in a small town. One night he wakes up to find that the townspeople have been turned into zombies and monsters! You need to find the remaining townspeople to uncover the mysteries behind the zombie outbreak. But be warned, your choices and actions can lead to different outcomes in the story.

Zombie Soup is set to come out in 2021 on the PC and Mac. You can download an early demo of their game on their itch.io or Gamejolt.
