The total revenue of more than 300 animation and online game companies in Beijing reached 13 billion yuan in 2011, up 30 percent from the previous year.

The city's online game companies posted combined revenue of 12 billion yuan, and exported online games worth of nearly 1.3 billion yuan, ranking first in China.

Among all Beijing-based online game companies, Perfect World has delivered the best performance in overseas markets, with its overseas sales revenue for the first three quarters of 2011 standing at about 600 million yuan.

Beijing Kunlun Wanwei Technology Company expanded relatively late into international markets, but its browser games with rich Chinese characteristics such as The Three Kingdoms and Clash of Kingdoms have gained great popularity in Japan and South Korea. Beijing Kunlun even has the largest share in the South Korean browser game market.

When online game companies are actively expanding overseas through independently developed games, Beijing's animation companies have also gained wide acclaim for their originality and creativity.

At the end of last year, a total of 31 pieces of animation works submitted by the city's animation companies were short-listed for the first China Government Culture and Animation Art Awards, the highest prizes in China's animation industry, and won 10 major prizes.
