India’s All-Star Games raises $1.5 million to make cricket sports games
Indian game startup All-Star Games has raised $1.5 million to make multiplayer games based on sports such as cricket on iOS and Android. All-Star Games specializes in live multiplayer sports games, with an initial focus on the midcore cricket market (midcore games are hardcore in nature but played in short sessions). The studio’s first title, Cricket Star, was developed as a hypercasual game by the two founders and drew over 60% retention after the first day. The studio’s ambitious next title, All Star Cricket, is currently in development and it is targeted at the world’s 2.5 billion cricket fans. “The All-Star Games team have had huge success with their first two cricket games and have an ambitious roadmap for building the defining Indian midcore IP,” he said.
