IndIa’s Game
sTUdIO dIrecTOry
The gaming forum came into existence six years back to provide a common platform where best
practices and knowledge, both from the business and the development perspective could be shared.
The Gaming Forum has five active city chapters – Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Pune and Bengaluru
– each of which regularly hosts developer meetups. It also organises the annual NASSCOM Game
Developers Conference which is the premier industry event in India.
India’s Game
Studio Directory
In this collaborative endeavour, the NASSCOM Gaming Forum releases the Indian Game Studio
Directory. By doing this, we hope to create better awareness for those individuals who have no base
of reference but want to know more about the Indian gaming organisations ever-so present in our
flourishing industry.

It was 16 years ago when a games evangelist from Intel convinced a young entrepreneur in Bengaluru
to shift his small multimedia start-up into the ‘cool and exciting’ field of games, giving India its first
games developer. Two years later, in 1999, another young entrepreneur in Mumbai founded a VC
funded games portal during the dot-com boom, and in Delhi a young team began hosting the first
game servers in India. These were clearly early days and these organisations were fuelled more by
passion than business opportunities. While there was no denying that India was potentially a huge
market with 1 billion people, in which over 350 million were below the age of 18, India then had no
gaming culture and low social acceptance, and very few had access to gaming consoles or to the PC.
Things started changing with the Mobile revolution which started in earnest in 2003, and the advent
of Java based phones with colour screens gave gaming the first real opportunity to connect with the
mass market consumer. In 2006, the Xbox360 was launched in India, followed closely by Sony with
its PS2, PSP and PS3 launches, that were supported with locally made games. In 2007, riding on the
growing internet base, a large corporate house launched a gaming site with big ticket investments
and TV commercials during prime-time exhorting Indians to play games. But it was really the coming
of social networks and proliferation of economic ‘feature’ and ‘smart’ phones that gave gaming its
biggest boost in India. The industry has been growing at a CAGR of 36 per cent since 2009, and it is
expected to grow even faster in the next five years with growing smartphone penetration, cheap 3G
and 4G services and continued exponential growth of social networks.
The developer community grew slowly during the 1997 to 2005 period, with game services
and mobile games being the focus areas. Global players started setting up back-ends in the
second half of the decade. 2009 saw a few organisations getting into PS2 development with
Sony’s support, but it was the ‘Angry Birds’ effect that really triggered the growth of the
ecosystem, with a number of startups blossoming across the country developing smartphone
and tablet games.
The Nasscom Gaming Forum was formed in 2006 to support and nurture the growing ecosystem, and
today it has city chapters in seven cities with quarterly meetups, a ‘must attend’ conference that’s
doubling in size every year and a very active Facebook group with over 2,100 members. NGF has released
reports and whitepapers on the Indian games industry, and it lobbies with the government to get the
sector the support it needs.
This year, we are proud to present the very first Indian Game Studio Directory. All the entries and
information have been provided by the respective organisations through an online survey, and it
generated some interesting data. As of today, we have around 125 developers in India, with over 35 per
cent being startups or Indies with team size less than 10 people. 34 organisations have between 10 and
50 people, and there are 28 organisations with over 100 people. Mumbai – Pune region is the biggest
hub, followed by Bengaluru and Hyderabad. There are organisations all over India, and in small cities
like Kanpur and Patna. 21 are purely into providing services, 30 are purely creating their own IP and 62
organisations do both.
These are truly exciting times for the Indian Gaming Industry, as it discovers and capitalises on the
market opportunities both in India and abroad. Many of these organisations will go on to become
super successes,yet many will fail, that is the very nature of a dynamic and fast growing industry. As
for me, I more excited now than I was 16 years back when I got sold on the idea of getting into games.
I hope you find this directory useful.

universe; whereas Tryst is again an RTS game set in the distant
future where humans find themselves at war with a mechanical

Our core focus has been on IP so far; but we are always looking to
new opportunities and partnerships.
