Amritsar, August 30
Azadi Quest, a series of online educational games based on India’s freedom struggle, was launched here today.
Speaking to the media at the launch, the additional director general of the Chandigarh Press Information Bureau, Rajinder Chaudhry, said “Azadi Quest”, a series of online educational mobile games, was a government effort to engaging youth in nation building through infotainment.
The mobile game was developed by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting in conjunction with Zynga India. Chaudhary said the launch of “Azadi Quest” was another step in a series of government efforts to recognize the contribution of freedom fighters and unsung heroes during India’s freedom struggle.
“Azadi Quest is an effort to tap into the huge market of online gamers as the gaming industry grew by 28% in 2021 alone and by 2023 the number of such gamers is expected to reach 45 crore. ‘Azadi Quest’ is one of the government’s best measures to educate players on the contribution of the country’s freedom fighters,” he added.
Chaudhary said, “As India has risen to the top five countries in the games sector, these applications will certainly boost the capabilities of the AVGC (animation, visual effects, games and comics) sector.”
