Playing and watching video game content is one of the most popular forms of entertainment. Apart from being an entertainment or hobby, nowadays video games now also offer a promising profession. This is in line with the high popularity of e-sports which is increasingly popular.

As the official partner of Facebook Gaming, MainGames, Asia's leading creator service provider (CSP), has launched a new program designed to help beginners and communities just starting out to realize their potential to become professional gaming creators.

For those who want to turn their gaming hobby into income, there are gaming creator tips that can be learned by joining MainGames Academy. MainGames Indonesia Director Edward Arifin revealed that MainGames Academy has compiled all the materials needed to start live streaming.

“In line with MainGames' mission, now everyone can stream, we present an educational program to share insights about game streaming through MainGames Academy. This program is suitable for friends who have always wanted to start but don't know how, including beginner gaming creators to increase their knowledge and experience," said Edward, Thursday (10/2).

At MainGames Academy, the community can learn for free by simply visiting the website. There are several chapters provided, starting from the basics of streaming, professional tips, as well as exposure to partner programs from Facebook Gaming.

In addition, registration for the incubation program is also open, where participants will undergo mentoring for one month. During the mentoring process, participants will receive intensive guidance from MainGames and take a series of online classes for free.
