Chinese developers made 549 online games that were approved by regulators at the GAPP in 2013 – a record high (and there is no disclosure about the number that were not approved). Recently the Ministry of Culture said that the approval process for domestically developed games will be streamlined, though they had not spoken on behalf of the GAPP, the body that has historically been in charge of approving games prior to launch. Now the GAPP is also saying that the process will be streamlined.
