A little bit of passion goes a long way

Dream job: Ng (first row, from left), Kok and Tham with MDEC director of creative content and technologies Hasnul Hadi Samsudin (back row, left) and the team that helped to make Uncharted 4 a reality.

Two weeks before last Christmas, Ng Aik Sern received a call from a company that almost all game developers dream of – Sony, the maker of the PlayStation 4 gaming console had been contacted by developer, Naughty Dog because they needed help ­finishing Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, a game of such scope and size that the release date was already pushed back once.

For Ng, who’s the president of Kuala Lumpur-based Passion Republic Sdn Bhd, the call was a dream come true as it was a chance to be a part of a game franchise that many consider to be one of the best.
