India witnessed today a gaming revolution with its very own multi-gaming platform, Googly. India’s universal home for ‘all things gaming’ – Googly’s mission is to pioneer a ‘multi-gaming platform’ across different devices with advanced features to engage casual and Esports players and build the largest community of gamers in India.
India has seen a surge in Casual gamers and E-sports enthusiasts, with more than 400 mn gamers in the country and a market size of more than $2.6 billion. However, there is a lack of a structured platform in the country that drives a complete gaming experience and caters to the needs of all gamer types. To address this market gap, a team led by industry veterans from technology, gaming, marketing, and brand building started their journey of building Googly – India’s 1st multi-gaming platform in late 2021. Following this vision, Googly created a multi-feature set platform providing its users an opportunity to create their custom tournaments where they can battle it out with their friends or join tournaments hosted by other users of the platform for their favourite titles, make new friends, get social, stay updated to the latest happenings in the world of gaming, and shop for their favourite in-game assets via the Googly Shop.
Talking about the launch of Googly, Mr. Shubhodip Pal, Co-founder & CEO said “We are elated that Indian gamers can finally witness a unique gaming experience through Googly. Our endeavour is to democratise gaming and make it accessible to all. Googly is an effort not only to ensure that gamers can easily access all their needs on a single platform, but also for all gamers to form their own unique communities and host custom tournaments to play with their friends. Our platform is a ‘one-stop for everything gaming’ with its multi-feature sets available to all its users under one subscription. We at Googly are proud to present India a platform that is here to revolutionise the country’s gaming experience and become India’s largest gaming community.”
