Darling stated, “India has become our largest market in terms of downloads followed by the US, UK and China. Our immediate goal is to grow our India studio by hiring the right kind of talent. We are looking to recruit people across skill sets including programmers, full stack developers, data scientists, 3D artists, creative video editors as well as direct performance marketing executives who will look at advertising for gaming titles.”

As per reports, India has contributed to the development of various games like Draw It with 90 million downloads, Teach Simulator with over 25 million downloads, Blade Forge 3D with around 20 million downloads and more. According to Darling, Kwalee focuses more on hyper casual games as they do not require skills or instructions which makes them easier to play while commuting or taking breaks.

Hyper casual games as mentioned by Darling, are easy to play as they have a simple user interface. A major chunk of Kwalee’s current revenue—around 90% comes from in-app advertising from these games.
