The basic data source is data from the studies of the association of Czech game developers GDACZ. A quantitative method of data analysis was used here, where data from the Czech video game industry was compared with data from the Slovak video game industry from 2016 to 2020. The research results showed that turnover increased by CZK 3 billion over five years, which is an increase of 163, 3%. Furthermore, the results showed that the total turnover of the Czech Republic is greater than that of Slovakia, however, the percentage growth was greater in Slovakia.
