I am Prakash Ahuja, CEO of GameShastra, one of the lead developers on PSP Platform. I have always believed that the PlayStation provides an amazing gaming experience and PSPgo is an exciting addition to the family.
At Gameshastra, we have a vibrant team that is developing entertaining, immersive games for PSP platform. D-Cube our first game is about a Lilliputian alien from a distant galaxy on his journey to earth. He has crash landed into a strange planet – the D-Cube. He must recover and assemble all the parts of his spaceship to continue with his voyage. The planet itself is a giant maze filled with cubes that only move in a particular direction. You have to guide him through these puzzles and help him collect the spaceship parts.
Circles, Circles, Circles is our next game. It is a brain teasing puzzle game where you need to conquer the golden zero in the world of circles using basic math skills. This is followed by Laserwars – an action puzzle game setup in an asylum where you split and deflect an array of beams to its target. Our fourth game is the awesome bike ride down the famous Route 66 connecting Chicago and Los Angeles where you search and find hidden objects in the journey.
We have a suite of over 30 games under development for PSP and the goal is to release a couple of games every month. We are working with the leading publishers on other consoles and porting their games with rich experience to this great new platform.
I have always believed that downloadable games are the future of gaming industry and the gaming industry is going to follow the music industry in moving towards the single download of addictive immersive games to be played anytime anywhere!!
