Indiagames will be the exclusive distributor in India for content from NASDAQ listed game developer Glu Mobile. This includes games, ringtones, wallpapers related to Age of Empires III Mobile, Brian Lara’s Cricket 2008, Kasparov Chess, Looney Tunes, Zuma, Atari Legends 3, Pong, Asteroids Deluxe, among others. Indiagames has distribution agreements with content providers like Electronic Arts, (NSDQ: ERTS) I-Play, Warner Bros, THQ (NSDQ: THQI) Wireless, among others. That said, a few mobile game publishers had recently acknowledged that their operations they wouldn’t be viable if focused on India alone.
Indiagames had also recently set up a governing body for gaming, called the E-Sports Council of India (ESC-I), headquartered in Mumbai, with local chapters in Hyderabad (ESC-H), Kolkatta (ESC-K), Chennai (ESC-C), Bangalore (ESC-B) and Delhi (ESC-D). The council intends to introduce scholarships for gamers, and organize tournaments like World Cyber Games (WCG), WCG Asia, GoD League and the Indo-Pak Cup, among others.
