One of the easiest ways to determine a great game is from the graphics. Visuals are the first one that you experience from a game. You can even tell how good the game’s graphic is from trailers, well, at least most of them.
Indonesia’s video game industry, although still a fledgling, has some great games with great graphics. With great, we mean graphics that are polished and well made, not necessarily 3D rendered graphics. If we determine the quality of graphics by 3D or 2D, we can have many 3D games but can be sore in the eye on this list, yet no 2D games that are beautiful to behold.
So here they are, seven Indonesian games that have beautifully polished graphics. Enjoy!
This game from Artlogic Games is one of the best games in 2016. Taking the RPG genre, Monster Age lets you be a monster collector, collecting hundreds of unique and powerful monsters and battle with them. Like many monster taming games, you can evolve your monsters to become more powerful. With cool and beautiful monster designs, Monster Age can please your eyes and entertain you at the same time.
Epic War Saga
From the same developer, Artlogic Games, Epic War Saga continues this epic game from its original platform, web games, to mobile games. From these two games, it seems that Artlogic Games has the specialty to make eye friendly games. Epic War Saga is a lane defense game which gives you the power to build strong armies which consist of monsters, gods, and human.

The first Indonesian game that released on PS4, what can you say? Fallen Legion doesn’t have the luxury of 3D graphics, but it has beautiful 2D graphics that generate good receptions. This game offers a gameplay that is a mixture of fighting and RPG, something that is familiar to Valkyrie Profile’s gameplay.

This one comes from Surabaya. Raiders Quest offers very detailed and polished characters and backgrounds. As for the gameplay, Raiders Quest is an RPG that allows you to collect up to 100 heroes to fight the lurking evil in the world. You must hone your skills of the elements to counter vast amounts of enemies in the game.
Vimala: Defense Warlords
This one is my personal favorite. Developed by MassHive Media from Bandung, Vimala: Defense Warlords has very stunning visuals and fun and challenging gameplay to match it. It is a strategy game with a little mix of RPG battle system. If you love conquering castles and collecting heroes, then this one is for you!
Infectonator: Survivors comes from one of the country’s prominent developers/publishers, Toge Productions. It has a gorgeous looking pixelated art style. In this zombie apocalypse survival game, you only have one life per character (permadeath), so choose your moves wisely. You start from scratch; from a handful survivor to a self-sustained “civilization”. A tough one to master, but certainly a beauty to look at.

Almightree: The Last Dreamer
One of only a few paid mobile games from Indonesia, Almightree: The Last Dreamer is developed by Chocoarts and was published by Crescent Moon Games. This puzzle platformer is one of the shining games from Indonesia in the year of 2015, brought by Crescent Moon Games to various international game events such as Tokyo Games Show.
