The gaming industry is all set to become big, really big in India in the coming few years. The lockdown of 2020 also gave us an idea about how much the gaming industry can prosper as you saw millions of Indians choosing gaming as their source of entertainment over others.
It is projected that gaming would become a $3,750 million worth industry in India by 2024. Provided the fact that India currently stands at 2nd position in terms of the number of apps downloaded in the world, we can imagine where gaming will take us in the near future.
Gaming is one of the rare sectors wherein you require art and science to merge together to provide the best quality game. You need creativity as well as great technical skills to develop a game. A game isn’t created by one man only. You actually need specialized people in every aspect in order to create a good and exciting game.
B.Sc in Gaming at iLEAD under MAKAUT (Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of Technology) is a game designing course that prepares students for the gaming industry. The students learn about game programming, game development, game designing, game testing and all other aspects of creating a game.
The game designing course is an all-rounder course for students that allows the students to learn every aspect but allows them to choose their choice of work. Hence, if you are someone who loves designing more than programming, you can very well shift your focus and build a career in designing a game.
Mukesh Ambani recently said that the game industry will take over the entire entertainment and media industry in the future and become a bigger industry than them combined.
The lockdown in 2020 also made us realize that gaming is a stress buster and the best time pass method for many people. No matter how the situation is economical, people are restricted within their homes or going to work, gaming is surging high in terms of the number of players and the number of hours they are investing behind gaming.
