Reliance Communications and CanvasM, a JV between Tech Mahindra and Motorola, have jointly introduced multi-player mobile gaming (MMG). With this, customers can compete with online fellow mobile and PC gamers playing the same game. In addition to gaming, MMG has exciting features like lobby chat, messenger chat, game chat, score posting and profile, besides allowing users to invite others to play the game.
CanvasM will also provide Reliance Communications a variety of international and domestic multi-player games. MMG also allows advertisers to create specific buddy lists, chat with gamers, gauge their moods and send tailored promotional messages accordingly.
CanvasM’s multi-player gaming platform has the unique distinction of housing a catalogue of 15 cross-media games. Apart from this, it has provisions for developing content as well as fostering third party content.
Mahesh Prasad, President-Applications, Solutions and Content Group, Reliance Communications, said, “Mobile gaming is a fast growing sector and is expected to catch up with the developed markets. Reliance’s launch of multi-player mobile games is another step in this direction and we are quite confident that it will generate a huge interest from our mobile customers, especially the gaming audience.”
Jagdish Mitra, CEO, CanvasM Technologies, said, “CanvasM is keen to get some of the new technologies to India and are very pleased to work with Reliance Communications, who has taken this pioneering initiative to do so.”
Customers will be charged Rs 99 per month for downloading a pack of three games, with unlimited plays for a month.
