The on-demand services and payment platform gojek announced that it has launched GoGames, its latest addition made available on the gojek app in Indonesia, aimed at the growing community of gamers in the country.
There are three key features in GoGames, which are:
- GoGames Top-up, that allows gamers to top-up gaming credits and buys virtual items for their favourite games using GoPay balance. Gamers can also access promotional information, discounts, gaming vouchers, and special offers from GoPay including cashback for game top-ups
- GoGames Recipe, a content service that provides tips and tricks for gamers to improve gaming techniques and the latest information on national and international gaming tournaments
- GoGames TV, which features curated content from some of the biggest names in Indonesia’s gaming scene, including Belletron, Bigetron, and RRQ, as well as well-known gaming YouTubers like Afif Yulistian, BTR Zuxxy & Luxxy, and Frontal Gaming, who will share their perspectives on different games and gaming strategies.
gojek said that this move is a part of its continuous efforts to answer customer needs. GoGames seeks to support Indonesia’s rapidly growing gaming industry.
In 2018, the number of mobile gamers in Indonesia reached 60 million and is expected to hit 100 million by 2020. Indonesia officially becomes the largest market for gaming in Southeast Asia.
“As a gamer myself, I understand that the market needs easier access to gaming information and a more hassle-free way to pay for gaming credits. GoGames has been developed by gamers, for gamers, and I am so excited that it will bring the more seamless gaming experience to Indonesia,” said Kevin Aluwi, gojek Co-founder.
GoGames follows gojek’s initial foray into gaming through GoPay’s partnerships with Codashop, Unipin, and Tencent, aimed at facilitating easy top-ups of gaming credits.
Most recently, GoPay became the first e-money payment option on the Google Play store in Indonesia, enabling millions of unbanked Android users in Indonesia to easily access popular games and entertainment, without a credit card.
Timothius Martin, Head of GoGames, said, “There are still many problems faced by gamers that have not been solved, such as the difficulty of getting information on how to improve gaming skills and the limited payment options when it comes to topping-up gaming credits. This is just the beginning in our efforts to fill these gaps, as GoGames aims to be a leading mobile content, features, and payments platform for gamers in Indonesia.”
