Google Cloud has partnered with India’s SuperGaming to offer SuperGaming’s gaming engine ‘SuperPlatform’ to developers. SuperPlatform helps game developers manage their live ops, matchmaking, player progression and data, analytics, and more. As a part of the partnership, all upcoming games from SuperGaming will run on Google Cloud.
SuperGaming is a Pune-based company that developed SuperPlatform to power its own gamers. Starting in 2019, the company started licensing the service to other developers. SuperGaming began operations in AWS for cloud needs but moved to Google Cloud a couple of years ago.
SuperPlatform powers the official PAC-MAN game for mobile devices. It is also used by some other popular mobile games such as MaskGun, Silly Royale, and Tower Conquest. The company is currently working on its own battle royale title, Indus Royale. SuperGaming recently launched TowerConquest: Metaverse Edition, a free-to-earn web3 mobile game. This game also used its engine.
“The platform has been made by game developers, for game developers, and after years of iteration, finesse, and supporting some marquee games like PAC-MAN, we felt it’s the right time to share it with more game developers,” said Roby John, CEO, and co-founder, SuperGaming.
“Gaming is a big focus for Google Cloud. We have scaled our global investments in this space and are excited about the response we are getting from the market,” said Bikram Singh Bedi, managing director, Google Cloud India.
SuperGaming is backed by Texas-based Skycatcher, Akatsuki Entertainment Technology Fund, 1UpVentures, and BAce Capital. The compass has raised $6.8 million so far.
Google sees India a key market for its cloud unit. The company has struck multiple partnerships in India in recent weeks to boost its presence in the country. It partnered with the Data Security Council of India, Redington, and Manipal Hospitals. Earlier this month, the company also collaborated with Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Ltd to build an intelligent transit management system.
