TEHRAN – Iranian games were totally deleted from the shortlist of nominations for the International Mobile Gaming Awards (IMGA) in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) on Wednesday one day after the organizers announced the nominees.

The IMGA has so far made no comment about its decision to eliminate all the 16 Iranian productions that received nominations at the competition, the Iran Computer and Video Games Foundation announced.

Games from Iran led the nominations, followed by productions from Jordan and Tunisia. 

“4Wheelers” from Ordibehesht Studio, “Ancients Revival” from Anashid Games, “Clown: Legendary Theater” from Game Origins, “Mafioso” from Paeezan Game Studio, “Shadow Racer” from Noa Games and “Super Sheep” from Appinu were among the Iranian games nominated.

Winners are scheduled to be announced during a ceremony in Amman, Jordan on November 11, and they will also become eligible to be considered for an IMGA Global Award early next year.

The IMGA is a worldwide competition that started in 2004, and it covers several different regions. In addition to IMGA Global, which is open to all, there is also IMGA MENA, IMGA Southeast Asia and IMGA China.
