Kaziranga national park in Assam, a world heritage site is famous for one horned Rhino. Spread across 430 square kilometers, Kaziranga hosts two-thirds of the world’s one horned rhinoceroses. We have covered lot of startup stories across Tier-1 cities of India, but recently we had a chance to cover lesser known startups from Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities of India. From India’s Northeast, a bunch of gaming enthusiasts who share a common passion for gaming started Fofatt.
Fofatt is a gaming studio start-up based out at Duliajan, Assam (India), scheduled to release their first casual title ‘Crash Match’. Fofatt develops games with a motive to captivate the audience and provide a kick that only a good game can. Their primary objective is to give the gamers the best user experience with high quality engaging games.
Fofatt is a creator of exciting games, games that enthrall you. We intend to make you ride your adrenaline!
Fofatt was founded in May 2014 with a mission to provide best interactive entertainment to add more cheers to people’s lives. Their logo is a pair of Chashma (Specs), inviting you to look at the world through it in a lighter way. The name “Fofatt” is derived from the initials of the sentence ‘Full of Fun All the Time’.
Fofatt is ready to release their first game ‘Crash Match’ for smartphones. Crash Match is a free to play puzzle matching game with unique game play concept themed around Kaziranga.
The testing version of the game for smart phones is now available at Fofatt website.
Crash Match is a browser-based social freemium game where a player gains points and rewards by matching the cars of the same type. The testing version of Crash Match is now available for smart phones (Android, iOS, Windows), releasing subsequently on tablets, computers and Facebook. The play area is the highway passing through Kaziranga and the mascot of the game is Sukaphaa, a little one-horned rhino.
The characters of the game are a few cars and Sukaphaa. The cars are a nuisance, they are basically bullies who fight and try to overtake each other by speeding on the highway. They represent the ill, odds and inhuman activities such as poaching, cruelty against animals etc. that are prevailing. The little rhino feels that it is his responsibility to protect his animal kingdom and keep those ludicrous cars at bay. Crash Match is a free to play game and the team is planning to release premium features such as extra lives to increase playing time and special powers for an enhanced gaming experience. Fofatt will also organize Crash Match Real Cash Tournaments where players can participate by paying a small joining fee. Winners will, be rewarded with real cash prizes.
Fofatt’s primary target audiences are from India and overseas. By choosing Kaziranga as the theme they are attempting to expose the beauty and heritage of the national park. Besides as the player plays on behalf of the little one-horned rhino to save the jungle family, it will psychologically impact the players spreading awareness of some great causes like saving wildlife and protecting the one-horned rhino.
