Mumbai-based gaming startup Gamiana has received a huge investment of just under a million dollars from the Indian Angel Network or IAN, providing the company with additional funds to expand their gaming network in India. Gamiana, derived from Games and Ashiana meaning ‘house’, thus literally meaning House of Games, is a unique startup in India offering for multi-player gaming platforms and real-time gaming options.
Gaming technology has grown a notch higher and Gamiana hopes to build a network on the increased synergy between online gaming, social networking and mobile internet availability. These trends have been witnessed across the globe, and more and more countries are now witnessing a change in the way an average online user plays games.
Following the investment, IAN member Chetan Shah has joined Gamiana as a board member as well. Gamiana being a new company trying to make a mark in the gaming industry could do well with the flow of money, and use it to focus on potential markets that are coming up such as Brazil, Turkey and Philippines. The company is looking to expand its user base, enhance its gaming software for the two existing games – Jamia Online and Vinashi and also bid for more gaming contracts from markets abroad.
