Bengaluru-based nCore Games said it has raised an undisclosed amount from Vishal Gondal, founder of wearable devices startup GOQii as well as Indiagames. The investment in nCore will result in the appointment of Gondal as a strategic adviser to the venture.
With the funding, mobile games developer NCore plans to bring and publish games from global studios to the Indian market, the firm said in a statement. nCore chief executive Dayanidhi MG said, “The Indian gaming market is rapidly scaling up and is poised for an unprecedented growth starting now.”
The firm which is founded in the year 2018 by Dayanidhi MG, who has worked with Digital Chocolate and RockYou, nCore develops and publishes mobile games, particularly mid-core games, for the Indian market.
Gondal’s GOQii offers a digital health and fitness subscription service that combines one-on-one mobile personal coaching with fitness tracking technology. Before GOQii, Gondal had founded and then sold Indiagames to Walt Disney reportedly for $100 million.
