There is an interesting new trend we’ve seen this year where many Indian developers are creating Indian themed games for the PC. Hear from some of them on what they went through while researching these aspects of Indian themes for their games. How come we don’t have more games that have stronger Indian themes? Why is this more prevalent on the PC platform compared to mobile and is a narrative led game more suited for thematic expression compared to a more traditional mechanic based game?
