Next Door Land aims to foster people-to-people links and promote cultural understanding among Indonesians and Australians, particularly primary and junior secondary students. The game includes aspects of history, music, sports, architecture, and mythology. Next Door Land is designed mainly for primary and junior secondary school students. However, the game is also practical for teenagers and adults who are interested to learn more about Indonesia and Australia in a fun way.
Next Door Land was created by the Australian Embassy with an Indonesian game developer, Agate. The Ministry of Education and Culture, Asia Education Foundation and Australia-Indonesia Youth Association (AIYA) have also been involved. It is now available for free download at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s iOS and Google Play pages, as well as ABC Splash and the education portal of the Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture.
