NODWIN Gaming has announced that India Plays, a streamer driven gaming event with Indian gamers, content creators and influencers set to take place on 23 September.
The fleet of streamers and gamers include names like Scout, Mortal, 8bit_Thug, Ghatak, Samay Raina, Kronten and many more. The event will be hosted by popular YouTuber and standup comedian Tanmay Bhatt and esports caster/analyst Ocean Sharma.
India Plays is NODWIN Gaming’s new property which will encompass streamer driven events for multiple game titles. The recently released platformer battle royale, Fall Guys, will be the first title under the banner of India Plays. Fall Guys shot to massive popularity from day one of its release and made way to the streams of big YouTubers and gamers around the world.
“The Indian gaming and esports markets are largely driven by gaming influencers, streamers and pro-players. The narrative they build around every game and their communities are strong enough to attract the youth of an entire nation. Fall Guys needs no introduction and nor do the participants at India Plays. We at NODWIN Gaming this time adopted a rather unorthodox way to do things with a funky title like Fall Guys, and I’m sure everybody is going to have loads of fun” said NODWIN Gaming MD and co-founder Akshat Rathee.
The tournament will see a set of 24 streamers and gamers who will play the game once every week on their own stream, the same will be broadcast live on NODWIN Gaming YT channel. The format follows a best-of-10 series for every participant each day and points will be awarded on the basis of the rounds reached in each game. The top name on the leaderboard with the most points at the end of fourth week will be awarded the champions title and a robusta banana plant.
