Online game Fantasy Town has launched an educational platform that provides information about Indonesian culture and history.
Titled Fantasypedia, the platform is available to the public, especially those who want to find out more about the historical landmarks and characters in Fantasy Town. The town simulation was developed by Arumgames and released by Garena Indonesia in July. It was praised for featuring characters from Indonesian folklore and historical Indonesian landmarks.
Fantasypedia features information on the National Monument (Monas) in Central Jakarta, the Lawang Sewu building in Central Java's Semarang and the rumah musalaki, the traditional houses of East Nusa Tenggara. The platform is expected to instill knowledge about the diverse cultures of Indonesia in the young generation.
Calvindoro Chrisna, strategic operations associate of Garena Indonesia, said in a statement that the software developers were committed to boosting the public's love and pride for the country's cultures. “Hopefully, the users not only play their Indonesian characters on the game, but also get to learn about Indonesian cultures,” Calvindoro said.
Alongside launching Fantasypedia, Fantasy Town is set to hold several events for its users, including the Cube Pop Event competition, Halloween Event that allows users to adorn their cities with Halloween-themed decorations and Halloween Skin Building that offers Halloween-themed building skins.
Garena Indonesia, a unit of Singapore-based internet and mobile provider Garena, has launched various online games in the country, including Arena of Valor, Free Fire, Speed Drifters and Contra: Return. (wir/wng)
