These Games were Developed in the Philippines

The Philippine gaming industry is very underrated they don’t get that much flock like in our filmmaking, music, and other industries. This saddens me because we have a lot of talented people who’s skills should be at least recognized.

So I prepared a list of a few locally made games that I think are interesting.

Bayani: Kanino Ka kakampi?

Are you a fan of fighting games such as Street Fighter or Tekken? Well, Bayani is a fighting game that is heavily inspired by famous Filipino historical figures, culture, and mythology. The game consists of 2D and 3D graphics which makes the game look like a classic comic book style.
