"This is a diverse selection of chosen participants and they all are of excellent quality. They have the advantage of a valuation component and have a selling point. Next, we will equip them so that they can perform optimally at Gamescom and Tokyo Game Show 2021," said the Deputy for Marketing from the Ministry, Nia Niscaya, in a statement received here on Friday.
Gamescom is a world-renowned game trade and exhibition that will be held in August. The Tokyo Game Show is a video game exhibition that is recognized in the Asian region and will be held from September to October 2021.
Both events will be held via online and offline means, with Indonesia participating virtually. For the Gamescom event, Indonesia will also be working alongside the Trade Attache in the Indonesian Embassy in Berlin and the Indonesian Trade Promotion Center (ITPC) in Hamburg.
Following a two-phase curation process, the Ministry and the Game Association have selected a number of game developers who will be representing Indonesia in the events, including 30 delegates for the 2021 Gamescom and 19 for the Tokyo Game Show.
All delegates will be participating in the Archipelageek Goes to Gamescom & Tokyo Game Show 2021 program. Not only will they represent Indonesia in the events, but participants also have the opportunity to exhibit their products in the Indonesian pavilion virtual booth and carry out business transactions with international buyers.
"We hope that by joining these events, participants can exhibit the quality of Indonesian games on the international stage," she said.
Indonesia's participation in the events is also decided based on the positive contribution made by the games sub-sector towards the country's GDP in 2020.
According to data from the Tourism and Creative Economy Outlook of 2020-2021, the application and game developer sub-sectors had contributed 24.88 trillion rupiahs to the country's GDP. This indicates how the Indonesian gaming sub-sector has great potential in the global market.
Indonesia has participated in previous Gamescom & Tokyo Game Show events, including in 2020 and 2018.
