The mobile game will initially be published with four chapters, starting from General Santos to his triumphs on the world stage during Pacquiao’s early professional boxing career.
The game was created in collaboration with Ranida Studios by the sports and entertainment company OMG Inc. and will be the first Filipino-made Pacquiao video game. The OMG Inc. was created by Mike Ochosa, a sports personality and boxing analyst, who bared the roots of the app to this writer.
