Asians in the Industry
Because of the rise in hate crimes against Asian-Americans, we have created this page to raise the visibility of Asians working in and around gaming.
Our goal is to bring people together through gaming and we hope that visibility helps this.
We would like to thank everyone involved in making this list. If you are interested in being included on future versions of this list, please contact Seppy Yoon
