Three Indonesian Games to Participate in 2018 Indie MegaBooth PAX East

By Febrianto Nur Anwari

Three Indonesian-made games are going to participate in 2018’s Indie MegaBooth PAX East held in Boston. And also there are some games from Southeast Asia too.


Pax East 2018 organizer already announced a list of games that will participate in this year’s (2018) Indie MegaBooth. Three of them are from Indonesia.

Business to Consumer (B2C) gaming events are perfect places to meet potential customers, gain media exposure and also get feedback from them. That’s why some indie game developers invest more time and resources to participate in B2C events such as E3, Tokyo Game Show, PAX and Gamescom.

One of the best B2C events for the indie game developer is Indie MegaBooth which will take place at Pax East 2018. The 2018’s Indie MegaBooth will take place at over 7,000 square feet of Boston Convention Center.

Not only games but also some tabletop games will be showcased there. There’s also an Indie MiniBooth to check out. Like the tabletop, the MiniBooth line-up rotates depending on which day you check it out. This booth itself aims to be a great way for indie developers to compete for public attention against the larger or triple-A studios.

For this year’s event, the organizer already announced games line-up that will be showcased in this booth and the number marks the biggest Indie MegaBooth to date since it was first introduced in 2012.

With over 100 games from 93 developers, 2018’s Indie MegaBooth will be fully packed with gamers and enthusiasts who want to try the latest indie game from all over the world from April 5-8.

From that number, there are three games from Indonesia who will also participate in this booth. They are Ultra Space Battle Brawl (developed by Mojiken Studio), Infectonator 3: Apocalypse (Toge Productions) and Rage in Peace (Rolling Glory Jam). Although they were developed by a different developer, all of them will be published under Toge Productions, a publisher that recently released My Lovely Daughter for PC.

Here’s a brief description of that three games.

1

Ultra Space Battle Brawl

Ultra Space Battle Brawl is a Pong-inspired game that was born from internal upgrading session held in Mojiken Studio in 2015. This is a multiplayer game where you should destroy your opponent’s crystal to score a point.

Combined with the multiplayer capability from Nintendo Switch, surely this game is one of the best game to play with your friends everywhere.

2

Infectonator 3: Apocalypse

Infectonator 3: Apocalypse is like the opposite of usual zombie-shooting concept games. In this game, you are not the one fighting to end the zombie apocalypse. But, as in the previous game, you will be the one spreading the zombie viruses. The main goal is you should spread the virus and infect as many people as you can before the zombie dies.

The third series still maintains the uniqueness of Infectonator series’ gameplay. You can spread the virus by only tapping the screen. After that, just sit back and watch the zombies infecting people.

3

Rage in Peace

Rage in Peace is an action adventure game developed by a Bandung-based studio, Rolling Glory Jam that emphasizes on surprise and memorization. The game aims to test the players’ skill, memory, and persistence while telling a story about life, death, and acceptance.

Surprise and memorization will be the key for you to help Timmy postpone his demise, receive inner peace, and pass on the way he always wished to. To arrive at home safely, Timmy only has the ability to run, jump and double jump.
