After dinner, the visitors are back to event room to try various prototypes in exhibition. There are four games are shown in Prototype Day 12, they are Arkana and Vandaria expansion, COMBO expansion from Stormidea Games, Pixel Marathon from Tinker Games, and Matcha from Gamma. Besides Pixel Marathon which is in form of video game, the other three prototypes are card games.

Narenda Wicaksono (Developer Manager, Nokia Indonesia) introduces Nokia X which is just launched and mobile game prospect for that gadget. The next talks, alternately, are the representatives from Arsanesia, Own Games, and The Wall who present their new video games. Roly Poly Penguin from Arsanesia is attractive enough with its funny design although match-three system has been used too many times recently.

During the event, networking keeps going. Even when several lamps are switched off, some parties are still busy sharing plans. The only unfortunate thing is there are few exhibitors accommodated on Prototype Day 12, maybe because the location is not as usual.
