Some Indonesian studios are trying to maintain the balance between IP creation and doing the outsourcing service. Two of them are Oray Studios & Plexus, which will participate in Archipelageek Gamescom 2019 under one entity.
Oray Studios & Plexus are Bandung-based IP creators and outsourcing studios. They have more than 10 years of working experience and hundreds of projects with indie developers as well as multinational companies.
As one of the veteran studios among the other delegations, Oray Studios & Plexus have participated in many international events before joining Archipelageek Gamescom 2019. “Last year we participated in the Tokyo Game Show and G-Star Korea,” said Iqbal Aribaskara, the CEO of Oray Studios & Plexus. “From the participation, we got some knowledge and networks. Also, we got some clients for our outsourcing service,” he continued.
In Gamescom 2019, Oray Studios & Plexus will offer their outsourcing services. “We can do the illustration, graphic design, 2D and 3D animation services. Also, we are providing service for clients who want to develop mobile games, PC games, web-based games, VR/AR games, and other applications,” he explained.
Not only that, as an IP creator, Oray Studios & Plexus also bring some of their notable IPs such as Angkot The Game (a PC game about public transportation), Hana & Caraka (a folklore-based IP) and SMARAK!!! (a mobile game based on webcomic series).
As an outsourcing studio, Iqbal said that one of their motivations is to get some clients for their services. “We also want to introduce our latest services, 3D art & animation, and 2D animation,” he continued.
Indonesian games will reach the global market through Europe's biggest game convention, Gamescom 2019 with the support from Archipelageek program.
Not only that, in Gamescom 2019, Oray Studios & Plexus also want to introduce their IPs to the world. “We have some IPs that are in the development phase. So, we hope that in Gamescom 2019 we can get a publishing partner or investor who can collaborate with us to develop those IPs,” he ended.
