“In addition to this, we are also working with and empowering content creators, regardless of the number of followers they have, to create engaging content around Indus”, he further added.
John cited that small creators are not familiar with behind the scenes, so helping them is a crucial aspect. The gaming startup provides the access to resources to help them create better videos.
A battle royale game based on Indian culture
The game is set in a backdrop of futuristic realm called Virlok. The theme of the game is based on Indian culture. It features different locations and a variety of playable characters based on the same.
John is aware of popularity of games like BGMI, COD, Minecraft, and Valorant among the Indian audience. And thus, he believes that it is a great opportunity to enter such a market. He also wants people to know that a ‘Made in India’ game can be equally fun and engaging.
