-Celebrating Hari Kebangsaan and Hari Malaysia just got easier and a lot more fun!

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia /PRNewswire/ — 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 Hari Kebangsaan and Hari Malaysia.  The event was launched by the Minister of KKMM; YB Senator Datuk Seri Panglima Salleh Said Keruak, who was accompanied by the CEO of MDeC; YBhg. Dato’ Yasmin Mahmood.  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.

“These mobile apps are testimony that Malaysian app developers have what it takes to develop commercially viable mobile applications and content that meet the needs of enterprises and consumers. It is important for us to provide a conducive ecosystem and nurture ICT talent that will elevate our country to greater heights”, said Dato’ Yasmin Mahmood, CEO of MDeC.

“Celebrating Hari Kebangsaan and Hari Malaysia should be meaningful and fun. With the iMalaysia app, everything will be simpler, organized and intuitive.  People can plan their activities on the go, find special promotions and even connect with fellow countrymen to keep the spirit of patriotism high” said YB Senator Datuk Seri Panglima Salleh Said Keruak, Minister of Communications and Multimedia (KKMM).

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. Terms and conditions apply.

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, go to www.31ogos.my

About Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC), MSC Malaysia & Digital Malaysia

The Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) was incorporated in 1996 to strategically advise the Malaysian Government on legislation, policies and standards for ICT and multimedia operations as well as to oversee the development of the Malaysian Multimedia Super Corridor (now MSC Malaysia), the platform to nurture the growth of Malaysian Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the IT industry whilst attracting participation from global ICT companies to invest in and develop cutting edge digital and creative solutions in Malaysia.

In 2011, MDeC’s mandate was broadened by the Prime Minister to include driving Malaysia’s transition towards a developed digital economy by 2020 through Digital Malaysia. In 2012, Digital Malaysia was officially unveiled as the nation’s transformational programme to achieve this aim. Digital Malaysia is a vision of a digital nation that is fully developed with a sustainable digital economy built upon a vibrant domestic ICT industry, transformative use of digital solutions by government, businesses and citizens, as well as a robust enabling ecosystem.

Today, both MSC Malaysia and Digital Malaysia run concurrently to spur Malaysia’s ICT industry development and digital transformation.
