Mobile and online games company Indiagames Ltd has partnered with PopCap Games, a Washington-based leading online gaming company, to launch PopCap’s catalogue of games on the games-on-demand (GoD) service.

PopCap Games’ offerings on the GoD Service will feature some of its most successful titles, including its flagship game ‘Bejeweled’, as well as ‘Chuzzle’, ‘Zuma’ and ‘Bookworm’, among others.

Speaking on this tie-up, Vishal Gondal, CEO, Indiagames, said, “With broadband connectivity growing exponentially in India, casual games are very important to the growth of online gaming.”

Gondal said that there were millions of Indian gamers who were experiencing gaming for the first time through the GoD service, and they wanted all the fun in a much simpler manner. He added, “We believe PopCap’s games like ‘Zuma’, ‘Bejeweled’ and ‘Bookworm’ will be a welcome addition to our GoD service, and will be an instant hit with our users.”

James Gwertzman, Vice President-Asia Pacific, PopCap Games, said, “We are very optimistic about the prospects of casual games in India, and we are excited to work with Indiagames to bring our award-winning games to Indian consumers.” He further stated that the Indian gaming market was at its nascent stage, and that his company was glad to be targeting the market at its early stage.

Indiagames has exclusive distribution agreements with leading international publishers like Atari, Activision, Codemaster, Microsoft, Cenaga, Playfirst, Sandlot, Eidos, Hipsoft, and Magnasoft, among others.
