Indonesian Police officers raided the local offices of mobile developer Gameloft this week, mistaking them for an illegal “gambling den”.
The police first barged their way in without a warrant, reportedly punching a security guard in the process.
They then sourced a warrant before returning to question the company’s employees. Eventually, they realised their misunderstanding and no charges were made against them. A report on local news site Tribun Jogja states that law enforcement didn’t quite understand what they did at the building.
Gameloft is one of the biggest mobile gaming developers, the people behind a variety of original titles like ‘Monster Life’ and a host of games based on movie franchises like ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ and Pixar’s ‘Cars’.
