Baparekraf Game Prime 2020 Online event is also held in a new online format where audiences can watch the event live through online screenings as the COVID-19 pandemic has limited public activities. However, Baparekraf Game Prime remains committed to presenting activities that support the development and growth of the Indonesian games industry. This year’s event includes esports tournaments, indie games exhibition, webinars and masterclasses for game developers, entertainment sessions with influencers, as well as a COVID-19 charity with kitabisa.com.
Baparekraf Game Prime 2020 Online is also the first government-sanctioned creative industry conference in Indonesia that is held in online format this year. Joshua Puji Mulia Simanjuntak, the Acting Deputy for Digital Economy and Creative Products at Kemenparekraf/Baparekraf stated that Game Prime is held to improve the quality of Indonesian game developers through the exchange of knowledge with international game industry developers and players, as well as increasing the exposure of local games to be known more by the wider community. Simajuntak also added that he hopes that games made by domestic studios can compete with international games in national and international markets.
