The game is called “Island Escape” where you get an empty island like Kho Larn and have to turn it into a tourist paradise like Pattaya with hotels, restaurants, bars and nightlife.Island Escape has already been played by more than 250,000 people and is very popular on Facebook. Any readers who wish to try can go to http://apps.facebook.com/islandescape/ and play it for free. “The game was created and designed by my team of 27 very high skilled Thai designers and artists, whom he hired in Bangkok and Pattaya. “I am very proud of my team and happy to find so skilled and hard working professionals in Thailand”, says Rudgaard. “They can easily compete with the best of Europe and USA, so the world better watch out for Thailand in the computer game business.
We won the SIPA 2010 award for best social game, and now we just won the TESA 2010 (TESCA) at the Government Center of Thailand presented by Mrs. Jirawan Boonperm from the Ministry of Information and Communication Tech-nology”.
