The first edition of the Réunion e-sports and video game fair, Run Games Week, was held from 12 to 14 November at the Parc des Expositions in Saint-Denis. For three days, children, teenagers and young adults clashed in virtual soccer competitions, plus physical fights with lightsabers or Super Smash Bros. tournaments, one of the successes of Nintendo. Some thirty exhibitors attended and ten professional conferences were also in the program, with the participation of several national officials from the sector.

“We wanted to focus on economic issues linked to the development of a thriving and multifaceted sector,” explains Loran Médéa, founder of the Association for the world of animation and video games of Reunion, organizer of the event. Our island should not be left out. Local professionalism must be highlighted and the capacity of the actors to be strengthened to attract projects, as Agence Film Réunion is already doing in the cinematographic and audiovisual sector ”.

Training and scholarships

The island already has some talents in the field of video game creation, thanks in particular to the existence of a specific training course within the Indian Ocean Imaging Institute (Iloi). Last June Pitaya, the first local video game development studio, was also created.

Creation aid was launched last year by the Regional Council, in addition to the specific aid fund from the National Film Center and the specific tax credit. “Public support is essential to support this dynamic,” emphasizes Loran Médéa. The first Run Games Week program made it possible to draw attention to Reunion Island, external participants are talking about it on their networks, now we have to convince investors ”.
