Gaming Start-Up Gamiana Raises Funding From Indian Angel Network

Gamiana, an online gaming startup, has picked up series A funding from the Indian Angel Network. The exact amount of funding has not been disclode. however, a press statement from the company states that IAN has invested under a million US dollars in the company. Following this investment, Chetan Sharma of IAN joins Gamiana as a board member.

The company intends to use the funds to increase its customer base, to better the gaming software of their existing games- Jamia Online and Vinashi, and to procure new gaming contracts in the overseas markets. In addition, the company also intends to broaden its geographical presence and says that it’s focusing on countries such as Brazil, Turkey, and the Philippines.

Offerings:

The name ‘Gamiana’, according to the company has been derived from Games+Ahiana (house in Hindi) and means ‘house of games’. The company states that it would “continue to develop real-time apps for the PC, Facebook and mobile platforms including iOS, Android and others”. We could not find any games developed by the company for mobile platforms, at the time of writing this post.

There are two browser based games that it offers: Jamia and Vinashi. While Jamia, which has a Turkish interface, looks like a role-play based game with virtual rewards and tasks, Vinashi appears to be a strategy based game. Jamia requires users to sign up before allowing them to play, and it did not process our registration, at the time of writing this post. Vinashi is not functional yet.

We’re not sure if developing an independent online games platform would actually work in the age of Facebook games. Even leading gaming companies such as Zapak are introducing social games on Facebook.
