Nazara to develop games based on Fox Star Studios’ Bollywood titles

nazaraMobile games company Nazara Technologies has signed a multi-movie deal with Fox Star Studios to develop games on the studio’s upcoming Bollywood movies and prominent movies in latter’s catalogue, reports Exchange4Media.

While the terms of the deal were not disclosed, this agreement will apparently give Nazara exclusive rights to develop games for Fox Star Studio across digital platforms like online, mobile and DTH.

The first few games being built will be based on the recently released Finding Fanny and upcoming movies Bang Bang & Bombay Velvet.  The games will be offered for free, as the company plans to monetize via in-app advertising, game embeds and in app purchases.

Earlier in May this year, Nazara had tied-up with digital celebrity network Fluence to create games based on Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan. As per the deal, Nazara was expected to launch three free games each of Bachchan and Khan over the next year.

In April last year, it had tied-up with Bahrain’s largest telco Bahrain Telecommunication Company (Batelco) to launch a new subscription-based gaming portal called ‘Games Lounge’ for Batelco’s postpaid and prepaid mobile customers in Bahrain. It had also partnered Airtel to launch a flat-fee mobile gaming subscription service called Airtel Games Club in Kenya, Tanzania, Nigeria, Ghana, Uganda & Zambia.
