Get to Know Us – Meet Matthew!
Meet Matthew Quek, Co-founder and CEO
Matthew has always been interested in the art of storytelling. He grew up an avid reader and cinephile, but once he discovered video games, he knew he had found his calling. Matthew worked hard to pursue his dreams of being a part of the games industry and earned a degree from one of the top schools in game design and development globally, Digipen Institute of Technology, in 2015. While studying, he collaborated on multiple projects with Haskel, fostering a strong friendship. In 2018, Matthew joined an independent game studio in Singapore, starting as an intern where he worked on multiple projects. During this time, he noticed a lack of proper management and development techniques despite the incredible passion and talent of the team. There, he also learned about the problems that indie developers face firsthand: the lack of funding due to the improper fundraising processes, lack of experienced leadership to properly manage a budding game studio, and the lack of visibility that launched games were receiving.
From there, Matthew joined Virtuos as an R&D Engineer, working on the technology behind the game development process for multiple impressive AAA games. He quickly learned the ropes and was soon promoted to Senior R&D Engineer, leading a small team before moving on to join Epicsoft Asia, a leader of PC & Console game distribution across Asia, as a lead engineer and subsequently Director of Technology. He spearheaded a successful digitization process, replacing the traditional marketing and distribution with tech-driven social media influencers campaigns.
At the same time that he was earning firsthand experience in the industry, Matthew continued to follow up on the idea of an incubator/publisher hybrid that he and Haskel had conceptualized while studying together at DigiPen, the two eventually collaborating to create The Iterative Collective.
