The Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) and the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia (KKMM) today introduced the newly developed iMalaysia app and game in conjunction with the upcoming Independence Day and Malaysia Day. The mobile apps are presented by KKMM in partnership with MDeC to embody the spirit of national independence and 1Malaysia.
The first iMalaysia app features special functions to enable the Rakyat to share their stories on patriotism, view the latest information on official events to be held, as well as participate in special competitions and promotions. It is the quintessential companion app for celebrating Hari Kebangsaan and Hari Malaysia!
The second app is the iMalaysia Game, a running game that requires the player to collect Malaysian sen coins for points whilst avoiding obstacles along the way to the finish line. Every level takes the player to a different time period and city in Malaysia and players will be rewarded with historical facts for completing every stage.
Both mobile apps were developed by MDeC’s Integrated Content Development Programme (ICON) developers. ICON is a platform to nurture local talent, promote innovation and spur the mobility ecosystem. iMalaysia apps harness local talent capability to inculcate positive use of digital content and applications among Rakyat in a fun learning environment.
To create further excitement in celebrating Hari Kebangsaan and Hari Malaysia, MDeC is also running a month-long nationwide contest within the iMalaysia Game beginning today until 31st September 2015. Players who upload their top scores on Facebook can stand a chance to win the grand prize; a holiday package worth RM10,000. 3 sets of Sony Playstation 4 game consoles will be given away as consolation prizes to the next 3 best scores.
Both iMalaysia app and game are now available for download on Google Play and Apple’s App Store. For more information on the iMalaysia app and game, kindly refer here.
