Sashi Reddi

"We want to be the number one game company in India. And 'game' includes online games, PC games, console games and mobile games. The fact that we came into the game industry close to four years ago makes us one of the pioneers in the Indian game space. Unlike many other companies that depended on outsourcing, we focussed on developing our own IP."
