Indonesian-made Mythical role-playing game (RPG) Code Atma was officially launched on Thursday.

The game invites its players, also known as seekers, to enter an enigmatic, dark universe and fight against mystical creatures called atma using a mysterious app. The atma are adapted from Indonesian spirits and mythological creatures, including kuntilanak (female ghost), jailangkung (traditional doll often used to summon spirits), pocong (shrouded ghost) and genderuwo (giant spirit of Javanese mythology).

Aside from fighting those creatures, players can also solve intriguing cases, train their favorite atma and prepare strategies for a battle.

Code Atma is available on the Play Store and it’s narrated in Indonesian.

The game is the result of collaboration between Bandung-based software and game developer Agate, PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia, Tbk (PT Telkom), joint venture company Melon of PT Telkom and SK Telecom and strategic initiative Oolean.

Oolean was founded by PT Telkom, Melon and Agate in July 2019.

Agate CEO Arief Widhiyasa expressed hope that the game would introduce the Indonesian culture and stories through its mystical creatures. “We also hope that the game can be the pride of Indonesia,” Arief said in a statement.

Founded in 2009, Agate has teamed up with other parties before to launch various games, including role-playing game Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story and e-sports manager simulation game Esports King. (wir/wng)
