With the emergence and expansion of digital media in the country, the gaming culture in India has evolved leaps and bounds. The modes of entertainment have changed for everyone. People have moved on from watching television and listening to music to spending hours on video games. Since our country majorly consists of a population that belongs to the age group of 25-30, our market proves to be an ideal one for game development. Once the gaming industry in India develops fully, it will grow to become one the biggest and best markets in the world. Moreover, consumption of digital content over all other devices proves that the scope of the gaming industry is huge in India.

Gaming is one of the few industries that have developed over several platforms – mobile,Guest Posting console, PC and online gaming. Most other platforms begin with only one platform and then move to another only once they have established their presence on the first one. But that is not the case with the gaming world. Also, it is forecasted that the gaming industry will generate several job opportunities for passionate gamers, animators, and graphic designers over the next couple of years.

There are several video game outsourcing companies abroad that are outsourcing a lot of their work to 3D game development companies in India (Dhruva Interactive, one of the best game development studios in India is one of them). This has become a growing phenomenon. The global gaming industry follows a distribution oriented model of development which provides countries like us with business. This is what is creating the vast number of job opportunities here. In the NASSCOM 2008 study, the research states that the gaming industry in Indiaachieved a value at $212 million, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 50 percent in 2012 to reach $1060 million.

But there are several challenges that the gaming industry in India needs to overcome. Along with having a vast knowledge of coding, creating a game requires a lot of creativity and diversely skilled resources. One of the biggest obstacles is getting together a team with the right skill-set. Once these hurdles are crossed, India will surely be one of the most attractive markets for video game designer companies.
