Surabaya Inferno is Real Time Tactic based on battle of Surabaya, one of biggest, epic, and deadly battle in Indonesia history with about 100.000 Indonesia militia fight agianst 30.000 British soliders in order to defending independence of Indonesia.


The idea of this game from pictures of battle of Surabaya . Many epic pics make Sengkala Dev want to make Battle of Surabaya in RTT games. For long time, this desire holded since we focus in Perang Laut but this is time to make this games. If you search in internet, there are some groups make this event to game, but noone make RTT game like this.

For long time, Sengkala Dev mostly make games based on colonial times(Pedalahusa Fall of Bali ), and kingdom(Perang Laut Maritime Warfare). This is first time for us make modern war game so we need learn more about many sound effects and modern tactics.

From the experience making strategy games, we make different version of Pedalahusa Fall of Bali and Perang Laut with more focus in war strategy rather build the city and military. In this game, conquer and defend is main key to win the war unlike previous games.


  • real time strategy
  • history games
  • we bring history to game
