FAU-G is here, an Indian alternative to PUB-G
New Delhi : Days after India announced a ban on Chinese mobile game application PUBG, an Indian alternative with the name FAU-G has been announced by actor Akshay Kumar to cater the needs of the gamers.
Actor Akshay Kumar took to Twitter to announce FAU-G (Fearless and United-Guards) and said that it will donate 20 percent of its revenue to the government's fund-raising initiative Bharat Ke Veer. However not much has been revealed about the release date of the game and also if the game will be available only for mobile devices or will it also be getting a desktop version.
Entrepreneur Vishal Gondal, who is the CEO of fitness wearable maker GOQii, posted a tweet on Friday to reveal the development of FAU-G. Gondal, who founded India games in 1999, which he sold to Disney in 2011, had invested an undisclosed amount in nCore Games in March last year, and is serving the startup as a strategic adviser.
Founded in 2018, nCore Games doesn't have any popular games under its developer profile on Google Play. The company's site, however, shows that Angry Birds maker Rovio is one of its partners. The company also worked as a partner on the popular mobile battle arena game, Vainglory.
While India is cutting hard its relationship with Chinese companies and application, the Indian companies are getting the advantage to get a booming business.
