Hyderabad: Hyderabad-based cricket strategy game company Hitwicket Superstars has bagged the top spot in PM Narendra Modi’s Aatmanirbhar App Challenge held on August 7. The results were announced over a live stream delivered by the Government of India’s Digital India channel on YouTube. The AatmaNirbhar App Innovation Challenge is an initiative aimed at identifying apps made in India that display tremendous potential to be leaders in their respective categories, including but not limited to Entertainment, Office, Health and Gaming.
Founded by Keerti Singh, Hitwicket Cricket Games has a diverse user base of which 20 per cent is female and 30 per cent are outside of India from nations like Australia and the UK. The game embraces inclusivity by adding female cricketers who are as powerful – if not more – and hit it out of the park just as often as their male counterparts do!
Hitwicket Superstars transports users into a virtual world where they own a cricket team of superheroes, with each player boasting a unique superpower of their own. The user trains the team from rookies into world-class superstars capable of mind-numbing feats – from batsmen scoring 12 runs in a single ball, to bowlers conceding negative runs to the batting side and bringing down the total!
“Our goal is to marry the mass-appeal of cricket with the accessibility of mobile gaming and put India on the World Map as a prime hub of Esports and Mobile Gaming”, says Kashyap Reddy, co-founder, Hitwicket Cricket Games.
