Giving his incepts about the need of increasing participation of Indian gaming companies, Alok Kejriwal, CEO, Games2win said, ‘I am happy that we have scored this hit, but honestly it’s about time many more Indian gaming companies began featuring in the top ranks on the Android and iOs Apps market places. Going forward, we are aggressively creating more ‘global’ titles for Android and iOs, with the sole intention of being a Global Gaming Company, born and bred in India.”

Games2win shared its flurry.com analytics (Flurry is a leading mobile analytics company) that revealed that the game has 2.2 minutes of median time spent, 20.7% returning users and 350k Daily Active Users (DAUs).

That’s a game that people like to play all over the world, not just in India. And that’s also why we have our biggest downloads from the USA, UK, Germany, Spain and the Netherlands.”

Games2win publishes approximately 12 games a month on its website. The games offered are in various categories, such as action, adventure, arcade, car, cricket, dress-up, funny, puzzle, romance, sports and trivia games. The company is also a strong player in the social gaming arena and produces original gaming applications for social networking sites such as Facebook and Orkut.
