The events garnered a total number of viewers that exceeded 600,000, setting a new record for Game Prime.
Josua A Simanjuntak, the ministry’s Acting Deputy for Digital Economy and Creative Products stated that “Baparekraf Game Prime (BGP) is the only event that brings together stakeholders in the field of digital games in the country. In BGP, game developers can show their work to gamers and game enthusiasts. BGP also provides the opportunity for business meetings between game developers and investors.”
