Mumbai-headquartered mobile gaming studio Nazara Games has poured an undisclosed amount of investment in Moong Labs, a developer of 3D simulation games. The two companies previously entered into a partnership to launch 4D simulation mobile cricket games Virat Super Cricket and Epic Cricket.
The newly-raised funding will be spent on improving Moong Labs’ core game engine and developing realistic simulation cricket games that have a global appeal.
Commenting on the investment, Head of Mobile Gaming at Moong Labs Samit Babbar stated, “We are very excited about our partnership with Nazara, who share our vision of bringing ultra-realistic game experience on mobile for cricket fans across the world. We want to elevate the notion of playing a game to a level, where you can experience all the dynamism and fluidity of a real world cricket match.”
Established in 2013, Noida-based Moong Labs builds free-to-play (F2P) games specifically for mobile and tablet devices. Games developed by Moong Labs are currently available on all major platforms, including Android, Windows, and iOS.
Babbar added, “A truly immersive experience requires authentic and realistic simulation, and that’s what we aim to bring to cricket fans – if it happens in a real match, you’re likely to experience it in our game. We have built proprietary algorithms inside our game engine that will enable us to provide next generation visual and auditory experience on mobile devices to everyone.”
