We believe the Indian market is the best opportunity in the world right now. The number of Indians with Internet and smartphone access is skyrocketing year after year. This puts Moonfrog at a multi-point advantage. As one of our directors and industry legend, Mark Skaggs, likes to say, “Moonfrog knows India.”
Our flagship hit Teen Patti Gold has been downloaded more than 20 million times and features among the top five highest-grossing games in India on both Android and iOS. In 2017, Moonfrog developed and launched games for two huge Indian IPs — Baahubali: The Game and Alia Bhatt: Star Life.
What more? We are backed by two of the world’s biggest investors — Sequoia Capital and Tiger Global. We expect no less because as you’ll learn, the Moonfrog Executive Team has its roots in deep gaming, product development and technology.
