Problem Area Addressed:
There is no such loop-hole we are addressing but the mobile game market is a crowded space with multiple games with a same mechanic. With lot of Indies coming in by copying the successful games, boredom in gaming is increasing killing the innovation. Major studios are working on single game for months and eventually failing to make it successful. As far as Indian Game Development community is concerned, there is no big title coming out locally creating a massive impact on the eco-system.
We are developing and publishing good quality entertaining games, with a strategy to make them successful. Instead of focussing on one single game for a month, we are concentrating on making multiple games on all kinds of possible platforms. Creating a huge catalogue of games with variety of genres keeping innovation alive. The target is to keep developing and publishing meaningful games that will increase our chances of discovering that next big casual game from India.
We publish our games on 5 major platforms being Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Amazon and Nook. For android itself there are 70 different stores that we publish our games too. We started publishing this year (Jan 2014) and with 5 small titles have got a traction of more than 100K users across all the platforms. We focus to cross a million users this year.
