A game based on the recently released movie, Krishna Aur Kans has been launched for various mobile platforms. The game has been developed and published by mobile game maker, Jump Games.
Jump Games has collaborated with Reliance Animation to launch the game. The game is available for free on the mobile platform.
The game puts players in the shoes of Lord Krishna. The plot has demons that have kidnapped all the village kids and are hiding out in Putna's den. All the parents of the children have approached Krishna to help them find and rescue the children. Krishna saves the kids by killing the demons.
Speaking about the game, Mr. Ashish SK., CEO, Reliance Animation said, “Krishna Aur Kans re-visits one of the greatest stories ever told - the story of Krishna, the naughty prankster who emerges as the greatest savior. While developing the movie and the game we have given special attention to adhere to Indian sensibilities towards our heritage characters. I am sure this Janmashtami casual gamers of all ages across India will enjoy enacting Krishna via the mobile game.”
Chaitanya Prabhu, Business Head, Jump Games India, spoke about the timing of the launch, which has been made to deliberately coincide with Janmashtami, a festival that celebrates the mythological figure's birthday, saying: "We wanted to participate in the celebration of Janmashtami by creating a game based on Krishna, and this movie gives us a perfect platform to engage with the casual gamers across markets."
This isn’t the first Indian movie to tie in video game. In the recent past we have seen games based on the Hanuman animated film make its way on the PS2 and a game based on the action thriller Ghajini makes its way on the PC. Both the games however were met with disappointing reviews.
