Azure Saga, Masshive Media

If you love playing adventure RPG, rich stories, simplistic yet clean graphics, this is the game to play. Every second you play the game, you will be curious about what lies next. You will also be challenged to create the best team composition and unlock all the United Skills you can find.

Forged of Blood, Critical Forge

Forged of Blood calls itself as a turn-based tactical RPG. It has similarities to XCOM series, especially XCOM 2. In this game, your goal is to conquer all the territory in the strategic map. You have a base in a form of a castle to recruit soldiers, buy upgrades, forge weapons, and create magic.

The back story of this game is quite interesting. It is about a power struggle to unite territories that rebelled from your main character’s kingdom, and other factions/races. You are acting as a prince, the brother of the king who is also the commander of the army.

Forged of Blood is developed by Critical Forge, a game developer based in Jakarta. Three times already they exhibited Forged of Blood on BEKRAF Game Prime, in 2016, 2017, and 2018.

At BEKRAF Game Prime 2018, they received an award for the most promising game.

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

Rage in Peace started out as a prototype made for Indies vs PewDiePie Jam in November 2014. It evolved from a prototype that focuses only on the fun and rage-inducing gameplay, to an experience that tries to tell an emotional story represented in the game mechanics.

My Lovely Daughter, GameChanger Studio

Next on our list is My Lovely Daughter. In this game, you portray as Faust who misses his late daughter. He wants to revive her back. So, with his alchemy skill, he tries to live up his daughter’s soul by “feeding” her using a creature called homunculi.

Faust should craft and raise the homunculi to get the suitable affinity that he can use to revive his daughter. If the homunculi have a good enough affinity, Faust can kill them and feed their souls to his daughter’s soul.

This game is quite unique because there are not many Indonesian developers who focus on gore and horror as their main aspects of the game. Kudos to GameChanger Studio on developing this game.
