Toge Productions has been around for more than eight years. What started as a leap of faith born from the passionate founders in 2009, now become one of the biggest game studios in its home country, Indonesia. But being one of the biggest in a developing country such as Indonesia would be nothing compared to becoming an ordinary game studio in a first world country. That is why, on our eighth years surviving the industry, we want to make a change in how we work. Instead of solely developing games, we will expand ourselves to something new for us, and that thing is game publishing.

Starting a new team for publishing might be considered as a bold move for some people, but we believe this will be the best directions for Toge Productions. Of course we will not abandon our status as a game developer, in fact, as you read this blog post, our experienced team, along with some new team members, are working hard to finish Infectonator 3. Do wait for the updates about this game soon.

So, what kind of games will Toge Productions publish? And why?

“I believe that Indonesian developers have the capability to produce high-quality games, but most of the time the talents from this country are faced with the problems of development fund and distribution channel. Toge Productions as one of the senior studio in the country decided that we can actually help the developers to pursue their passion and prove everyone that a game from a developing country such as Indonesia has their place in the global game industry,” explained the CEO and founder of Toge Productions, Kris Antoni.

One of our mission as a company is to help grow and nurture Indonesia’s game industry. To achieve that, we need to make sure that Indonesian game developers can realize their idea into a fully released game, and bring those games to global market properly. Of course, we will not limit ourselves from publishing games from other places around the globe. But for now, we will focus on helping Indonesian game developers targeting all kind of audiences around the world, before moving to regional and global level.

Then, what does Toge Productions have to offer as a publisher? Games that are published by Toge Productions will receive several benefits such as:

Support funding

Toge Productions will help the developer by giving support fund for the development of the game, with the amount varies depending on the size of the game and the agreement between the publisher and the developer.

Consultancy

Our team will help the developers that work with us in the game design, art, technical aspect, and quality assurance. The support will not only be limited to consultancy but also covers human resources from our team if necessary.

Marketing and PR

Toge Productions will also help developers dealing with marketing and PR stuff, ran by the newly founded team of consultant and former game journalist with experience of working at the regional level across South East Asia.
