Proving that computer games can be used as a beneficial learning tool, Cyberview Sdn Bhd recently organised the first Malaysian Cybergames Festival 2010. Supported by the Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) and technology partner Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. Malaysia (AMD), the festival is an initiative by the Malaysian Cybergames Operations and Research centre (MyCORE) to encourage primary schoolchildren in nine states throughout Malaysia to learn about positive gaming. Challenging their peers through playing computer games based on Maths and English, the competition aims to introduce online educational games and inculcate interest in game development.
