Onet Asli, a casual mobile game adapted from classic game Onet, is now available on social gaming app Hago.
The game, which requires players to pair up two similar images to score points, was created by Bandung-based game developer Agate and Oolean, an initiative founded by PT Telkom, Melon and Agate in July 2019.
For Onet Asli, they teamed up with popular webcomic Tahilalats and featured the comic’s characters, emojis and sound effects in the game.
By collaborating with Hago, Onet Asli can be played by users worldwide, enabling them to compete with each other regardless of their location. The game has been downloaded by more than 500 Android and iOS users and has been listed on Hago since July.
“The team from Hago is very supportive in this collaboration. Hopefully, this game can be enjoyed by Hago users in Indonesia and give them exciting experiences,” Dave Fabrian, Agate’s vice president of mobile games, said in a statement. “We also hope more of Agate’s games can be integrated with Hago.”
Hago Robi Gao, senior BD director of Hago, said it always provided space for local game developers and promoted their works on the platform. “Onet Asli is the beginning of our collaboration with Agate and we hope there’ll be other games that we can promote,” said Gao. “The popularity of casual games in Indonesia is quite high and Onet Asli features game mechanics that have never been found on Hago before. I’m certain that everyone who is familiar with Onet will like this version from Agate and Tahilalats.”
Founded in 2018, Hago has listed more than 150 casual games. Available at the Play Store and App Store, it has been downloaded by more than 100 million users, with more than 40 million users in Indonesia. (wir/wng)
