“The government sees the huge potential of the gaming industry market in Indonesia to be developed further. Kominfo through the Indonesia Game Developer Exchange activities seeks to encourage this potential by increasing the capabilities of game developers, channeling superior talent to meet industry needs, as well as opening access to funding and potential for business cooperation. We collaborate and invite more stakeholders to participate in advancing the game industry. With the INDIE RISE Awards at the IGDX Conference, we hope that this award can be an appreciation that motivates Indonesian game developers to be able to compete in local and global markets."
-Semuel Pangerapan, Director General of Application Informatics, Ministry of Communications and Informatics-
“Every year, the gaming industry continues to evolve significantly. New breakthroughs in technology, tools and next-generation platforms and powerful infrastructure, allow developers to translate their creativity more freely than ever before. Competitions like INDIE RISE are a great way to encourage these developers to pursue the creations of their dreams and dare to make bigger games. We are very happy that Plug In Digital sees the potential of Indonesian developers, and hope this activity can bring more great games made in Indonesia to the world.”
Cipto Adiguno, President of Asosiasi Game Indonesia.
