In recent years, Indonesia has produced great game titles. Muhammad Fammi, who died suddenly the other day, is the best one, but a novel title has appeared in games that compete online. That is the Moba work called “Lokapala” ** that will be introduced in this article.
In Japan, this title has no name recognition… maybe a few years later, it may be a “Kurofune” and come to Japan.
Games and protection tradeism
From March to April this year, a national convention called “Lokapala Jawara Nusantara” was held in Indonesia. This is a large -scale event that attracts 1,075 players from 43 indonesia cities all over the country, where they participated in the game from home or local co -working space. The central government’s ministries and agencies were sponsored by the government, and the online and offline awards ceremony was also available in the Minister of Maritime and Investment, the Minister of State, and the Minister of Tourism and Creation.
Lokapala, the competition title, is a smartphone for smartphones developed by the country’s game developer Anantarupa studios. It has been released for iOS/Android (for Indonesia).
This Lokapala has high expectations from the Indonesian Central Government. Because Indonesia has protection and trade. Regardless of the same smartphone, Moba’s world -renowned title, League of Legend: Wild Lift, or “Mobile Legend: Bang Bang”, it is a “foreign product” from Indonesia. The current situation where young people are enthusiastic about these titles are not very good for the central government.
Protection and tradeism, in a nutshell, is “import reduction and export increase.” When applied to that direction, the supply of the software field must be provided in the country as much as possible. At the same time, the central government recommends “incorporating Indonesian culture into the game.”
If you have traveled to Bali even once, if you touch Lokapala, your memories of your trip will be revived. This is because both fields, minions, and player characters mimic the gods, spirits, nature, and architectural styles often seen in Bali.
Bali is still a majority of Hindu, and there are shrines and temples everywhere in the city. In the first place, Indonesia itself had been worshiped until the 15th century when the Islamic dynasty emerged. Therefore, you can check the customs derived from Hindu in Java and Sumatra.
One of the characteristic elements is that the player character of “Lokapala” is called “Kuschatriya” . This is the “Hero” of “Champion” and “Mobile Legend: Bang Bang” in “LOL: Wild Lift”.
“Kushatriya” was originally one of the Brahmon social hierarchies. It is a “samurai” in Japan, and in the Hindu society, Kuschatriya refers to the ruling class. In “Lokapala”, it is simply used in the sense of “warrior” or “warrior”.
The touch of this Kushatriya is extremely unique. Not only the characters that represent the Indonesian culture before the establishment of the Islamic dynasty, but also the characters that embody “Ichiichi of different cultures”. For example, the fighter “Guning” is set in which a Chinese kempo user and the Silat (Java Island’s old martial arts) use two pairs.
This reflects the religious policy of the Majapahito dynasty, “BHINEKA TUNGGAL IKA TANA HANA DHARMA MANGRWA”. Since the name of this policy is old Java, it is very difficult to translate into Japanese, but the meaning is that “the truth of different cultures is one, so this is the same.” The part of “BHINEKA TUNGGAL IKA” is a modern Indonesian national policy, which is translated as “unification in diversity.”
The two people, with different cultures and different backgrounds, go on to the same purpose…. The ideals of such Indonesian people are realized in the game.
“forgotten hero” appears!
The most “Indonesian” character in “Lokapala” may be Marksman’s NIO.
She is a female soldier who takes a gun for Indonesia independence. In order to release her homeland from her 300 years of repression of her 300 years, NIO joined an independent army regiment with her own will. She is the only female soldier in the regiment. NIO shouts in her line. She said, “Hurray independent!”
If the aforementioned Guning is a “symbol of national policy”, NIO can be said to be a “symbol of patriotism.” And NIO is real person . SIN NIO, a Uonosobo in Chubu Java, was fighting as the only female soldier under the Ceremony under Scarno. She wears the same uniform as a male soldier, and she has a pseudonym as a man.
However, she was a Chinese and woman, and she was discriminated against after the war, and she was not considered a veteran (veteran) from the country. This also means that there is no pension from the national treasury. She had a homeless life in Jakarta.
She was recognized as a veteran in 1981. And it was just two years ago that her achievements became widely known to Indonesian people. The fact that the media has been reported all at once, and the popular actress Laura Baskki played NIO on the stage. And now NIO is fighting the screen narrow in Lokapala.
Creation to the details
Lokapala’s game is not far from other Moba. The fact that “three routes extend from the home base have three tower” will not be different from “LOL: Wild Lift” or “Mobile Legend: Bang Bang”.
However, in the case of “Lokapala”, I felt that “sticky defense” could be made instead of a major reversal element. The attack from the tower is quite strong, so if you use it well, you can recover the disadvantageous situation little by little. In addition, items cannot be purchased unless they are the hometown of “LOL: Wild Lift”, so there is no need to return to the hometown if you have the HP.
Anyway, this game has been carefully built into the details. The minion has a cute design, and even when the internet connection is unstable, they appear and display “MENGHUBUNGKAN”.
However, it takes time to match, as it does not have many players around the world, such as “LOL: Wild Lift” and “Mobile Legend: Bang Bang”. If you enter solo during the day of Western Indonesia (Time Zone on Java, 2 hours later than Japan), you will be able to feel it well.
The country of Indonesia was a member of the western countries as in Japan during the Cold War. Hollywood movies were actively screened, and people’s fashion and lifestyle were also American. In return, clothing and traditional performing arts using local textile and dye are driven in the shade, and the perception that “traditional style is outdated and dumb” has expanded.
However, “unification in diversity” is not the idea that has come out in modern times, but is inherited from the Majapahito dynasty as described above. And the battic (Java’s low ketsu dyeing), architectural style, and unique art and religious views are all connected to “unification in diversity.” This is the biggest reason that the central government recommends “incorporating Indonesian culture into the game”.
The Moba “Lokapala” is a well -established but well -built history and culture that leads to modern times. Behind this is the situation unique to a multi -ethnic nation. Although there are hurdles in domestic play, the official website shows a part of its unique features, so those who prefer MOBA genre are a must -see.
