Mobile game launched by Indian Air Force targets young people

India’s first 3D game for mobile devices was launched by the nation’s air force.

In an effort to attract young boys and girls and interest them in pursuing a career in India’s air force, the Indian Air Force (IAF) launched the first phase of its 3D mobile game called “Guardians of the Skies” (GOTS), which puts players front and center in highly realistic air combat scenarios.

The IAF is looking to attract the best of the country’s youth.

Air Marshal S Sukumar said of the event that it is a notable milestone in motivating young people to join the air force and that the IAF want the best youth from future generations. “We are getting the numbers, but we want to attract the best of the boys and the girls to join the Air Force,” he said.

Sukumar stated that he hopes the mobile game will not only help to bring together the top boys and girls among India’s youth and encourage them to take part in the air force, but also to “become great patriotic men and women ready to serve the country in any situation.” The game’s target market is boys and girls aged 14 to 20.

The 3D mobile game will be available on more than one platform.

Guardians of the Skies is currently only available for Android, but Windows and iOS versions are to follow soon. This will enable the free to play game to reach a larger number of mobile users.

Developed by Indian mobile gaming and technology developer, Threye, GOTS is a three dimensional flight simulator game with realistic graphics and air combat situations. During the game, the player is a pilot and is seated in a fighter jet or a combat helicopter. The game’s storyline involves the IAF taking part in a defense mission against a fake nation called “Zaruzia”. This fictitious country is unstable politically and economically and has undergone a military coup. It has problems that are coincidentally not unlike Pakistan’s.

Although the storyline is not real, it was designed to provide players with the thrill of what the air force experiences on a daily basis. At present, the IFA mobile game only includes a single training mission and two campaign missions. A second phase for the game is set to be launch on October 8th, which will likely include eight additional campaign missions.

Havok to break into mobile games

Havok breaks into mobile gamesHavok considers mobile games part of gaming’s future

Mobile devices have begun to play a major role in the game industry. Mobile games have become one of the most lucrative sectors of the industry, even cutting into console sales and other hardware. Game developers are beginning to take the mobile space more seriously as a result, with many studios that had once been devoted exclusively to consoles have begun creating games for mobile platforms. Havok, creators of the most widely used graphics engine in the game industry, is one among several in its industry that is beginning to consider mobile as the future of gaming.

Company aims to sidestep technological constraints of mobile platforms

The Havok Engine is used in most of today’s most popular games, whether they are on a console or on a PC. Havok is not used for mobile games, however, due to the fact that it is not designed for mobile platforms. Smartphones and tablets are very different from consoles. While the technology that separates these platforms from one another is very similar, mobile devices are typically less capable of handling games and high-demand software than consoles are. Thus, mobile devices are simply incompatible with the Havok Engine. That does not stop Havok from making an entry into the mobile space, of course.

Project Anarchy to bring 3D to mobile games

This week, Havok has announced its Project Anarchy initiative. Project Anarchy is a 3D graphics engine designed specifically for mobile games. The engine will allow developers to create high fidelity 3D mobile games, which are currently a rarity in the game industry. The vast majority of mobile games are 2D, leveraging a cartoonish style to appeal to young consumers and be more accessible to various mobile platforms. While 2D styles have been well received among consumers, Havok believes that mobile technology has reached a point where mobile games can enter into a new generation.

Project Anarchy will be available for free

Project Anarchy boasts of a wide range of features that can help make a visually impressive game, but the most notable aspect of the engine is that it is free. Havok has no intention of charging developers to use the Project Anarchy engine. This immediately makes it accessible to independent developers that are not backed by a large budget, as typical graphics engines are excessively expensive.
