GET ready for a day of intense virtual action at PPIA Swinburne’s inaugural Indonesian Gaming Competition in Melbourne. Regina Karis details the play by play.
It’s no secret the video game industry has been growing rapidly this past few years. Just look at all the smart phones, graphic cards, and high-speed internet connection plans currently in the market.
“The purpose and motivation behind IGC are to accommodate Indonesian people in Melbourne who have an interest in playing games and want to develop strategy by building teamwork,” says PPIA Swinburne media officer Nanciency Javelin.
“The purpose and motivation behind IGC are to accommodate Indonesian people in Melbourne who have an interest in playing games and want to develop strategy by building teamwork.”
“The basis of IGC is also to bring together all Indonesian gamers into a challenging competition environment from a selected range of popular games [in the Indonesian gaming community].”
If players don’t have a team, PPIA Swinburne will find them one.
The competition is open to everyone, but there’s a $10 registration fee per person.
The winning team for each game will pocket $300, the runner-ups $150 and the second runner-ups $50. Those teams will also receive certificates, freebies, hampers and medals.
Nanciency believes the competition “will be very exciting”.
“We are planning to give all the spectators and players [the chance] to win our special 2 Garuda plane tickets for the door prizes, and we will decorate our venue with war atmosphere,” she says.
“Perhaps they are the other highlights beside the competition itself.”
The Indonesian Gaming Competition will be held at Mid City Internet Cafe 1, 276 Russell Street, and Mid City Internet Cafe 2, 41 A Beckett Street, on August 10, 2013, from 9 am till finish.
