Falafel Games’ Vince Ghossoub Talks Growth in MENA Region

Falafel Games

Falafel Games’ founder Vince Ghossoub understands just how impressive and impactful the growth of the MENA region when it comes to the gaming industry and believes the future is primed for some big moves in the coming years.

“Consumer opportunities are plenty as long as the content is world class: Ghossoub said, during an interview with Pocket Gamer Biz. “Localisation is great but comes as a cherry on top, unlike the old days. The main challenges are talent and investor fluency with the industry and, secondarily, the dire disposable incomes in North Africa. Proximate successes could help alleviate the first issue while we have to wait for macro factors to unlock the floodgates of the second issue.”

Ghossoub also spoke about how his company is helping develop and work with local industry talent in the region.

“Building a successful team in the region is, in my opinion, the most noble contribution one can make to local talent” he explained. “It generates learnings, new content, and funds from which the rest of the environment could benefit.”
