You’ll Be Surprised To See How Many of These Games Were Made By Indian Developers

Did you know that a lot of the animation for movies like Life of Pi, Avatar, Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe were all done in India? I read somewhere that each hair on Aslan’s mane was individually controlled to give the best visual appeal.

Next time while waiting for the extra scene in an X-men or Deadpool movie, just pay a little more attention to the names mentioned in the credits. You’ll end up reading more Indian names than you thought existed!

Even though we posses the skills, India is still to come up with a hit game. But independent developers take on smaller ventures such as mobile games and apps and I have to say are pretty damn good at it. And since we’re in the patriotic mood, here is a list of the best mobile games that are made right here in our country.

Simple Spy

Simple Spy is a simple game right from the outset. Nothing complex or confusing about it really. One uses the control to maneuver through the various mazes while keeping in mind one thing, to only step on the green platform. Simple, right?

Developer: Kodari Games

 

Stay, Mum

If you’re one who tears up watching Rom Coms then this might not be the game for you. The game revolves around John, his wild imagination and his mum, who is kept busy at work to support herself and John. While Mum is at work, John is at home with the blocs she left behind to cure his loneliness. Tell me you’re not crying!

The game is getting featured on the app-store as part of a promotional campaign by Apple to promote games from India during Independence Day. Also the game will be available at Rs 10 for a week from 11th August to 17th August.

Awarded Best New Game: Apple App Store, October 2015 (US, Canada, Europe, Asia)

Developer: Lucid Labs

 

Samosa

Firstly, I am fascinated with the fact that this game can be played English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam! This game has a great silhouette theme that adds to its charm. You play as an auto driver, Sam who lives a simple life with his pet chicken until Osa, an evil scientist, who tries out various experiments to take over the world. This is something Sam and his chicken cannot seem to tolerate. Upgrade your three-wheeler with an assortment of guns and show OSA what SAM is made of.

Developer: Madras Games

 

Blyss

Premium puzzle games are hard to come by, even more so those made in India. The artwork in the game is wonderful accompanied by the relaxing music. The game is fairly simple and clear with its gameplay objective, you’ve got to eliminate every single dot populating the screen and reach highest level you can. The game gets harder as you progress and get into the further levels of the game. It’s one of those games that you need to play to get it, so get it.

The Light Inside Us

This is what Pocket Gamer had to say about this game:

“The Light Inside Us combines the quick-thinking of tower defense, the planning and timing of a fast-paced strategy games, and the satisfaction of shoot ’em ups.”

And this is what they had on their site:

“The Light Inside Us takes place in an abstract world where light is alive. The children of light are on a quest to rescue their mother in a strange land which harbors many secrets. The more powerful the children grow, the more easily they lose themselves to that power. Will they fulfill their quest? Or will they succumb to their own powers.”

If that doesn’t get you to play the game, then nothing I say can.

Developer: Dastan Games
