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.

New mobile games launched in India

Bharti SoftBank launches its first mobile games

Bharti SoftBank, a joint venture between India’s Bharti Enterprises and Japan’s SoftBank, has begun its foray into the world of mobile games. This week, the company launched two mobile games that are targeted at a general demographic that has exhibited interest in such games in the past. The two games, called Songquest and Shiva: The Time Bender, are currently available on the Google Play store. Bharti SoftBank expects to have a total of five games in its portfolio by March of next year.

Company takes aim at young consumers

Like other game developers and publishers, Bharti SoftBank is taking aim at young consumers. This particular demographic has shown a strong interest in mobile games and most of these young people have mobile devices of some kind. Bharti SoftBank’s current goal is to capture approximately 10% of the 12 million smartphone users that exist in its chosen market.

India Mobile GamesGames to include microtransactions

The games released by the company are free to play and are currently only available for the Android platform. These games will be made available for other platforms in the near future in order to engage a wider audience of mobile consumers. Like other free mobile games, those offered by Bharti SoftBank will allow players to purchase additional features in-game. This will be how these games generate revenue, but the company will have to find a balance between its in-game transactions and the content it offers for free lest it alienates consumers.

Companies show more interest in mobile games

Mobile games have become quite popular in India and other parts of the world. These games have also become a very lucrative sector for the global game industry. Large development studios and publishing companies are becoming more involved in the mobile sector in order to take advantage of the popularity of these mobile games. Consumers, however, have shown concerns that many of these games are nothing more than cash grabs from these companies, citing an obsessive focus that companies seem to have on in-game purchases.
