Hello Taueef,
We understand your problem. Most people are not aware of over all picture of game industry, the cloning studios, which were recently shut and has created huge employment issues were not there for a long time. Apart from this, overall Game Industry had a very good start this year, recently Claud Cade has invest $60 M in a game studio in Pakistan. There are many Pakistani studio are doing good work on both local and international level, however, our industry is an emerging industry and we lack in proper education, training and practices for game development. These cloning studios started few years back and closed down now. We are hoping better quality games will be made and industry will flourish from now on. You can join our Game Industry meedups and live sessions to learn more.
