Games in Asia meetup Jakarta: Getting your first million downloads



Our upcoming Games in Asia meetup will be coming to you in Jakarta next week (yes, next week) with a very interesting topic at hand: “Getting your first million downloads.”

At the event Irwanto Widyatri, creator of the Indonesian hit game Tebak Gambar will share with us how drove his app into the millions range. Built while he was still in school, Widyatri’s game marched on to accumulate over three million downloads, and hit the top spot in Indonesia’s “Top Free Games” categories in the domestic App Store and Google Play store.

Widyatri will share tips on marketing, monetization, scaling, and technical matters. If you are curious get the dirt on how he turned a pet project into a popular casual game, join us on Wednesday, August 13, 2014 in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Irwanto Widyatri, creator of Tebak Gambar


A Binus University graduate, Irwanto Widyatri started creating mobile games during his college years. Out of boredom and with too much time to spare, Widyatri created Tebak Gambar to learn new skills as well as adding a project to his portfolio.

Hendri Salim, editor in chief at Games in Asia Indonesia


Before entering the game industry, Hendri was a SAP consultant for three years. His last position was a divison manager at Anabatic Technologies. Tired of working in the corporate world, he went on to pursue his passion in the gaming industry and founded GameSaku (now Games in Asia), which was acquired by Tech in Asia in 2013.
