The games will be selected based on localization, innovation, fun, design and technical and production quality. However, the company mentioned localization plays an important role in the competition, meaning games that have been created in Bahasa Indonesia will get higher scores.

Fifteen finalists will be announced on April 15. They will have the opportunity to exhibit and showcase games at the final event in Jakarta on April 26.

The top three finalists will receive several prizes, including an Android TV set, invitation to a Google Playtime event in Singapore, Google Play Store credit and an opportunity to be promoted on Google Play consumer facing channels and developer facing channels. (kes)
