The Seamedu Game Meet is right around the corner and we thought we would give you a little extra incentive to be there! If you have read our blog on the schedule of the Seamedu Game Meet 2015, then you know there is going to be quite a bit happening on the 7th of February. We have put together four sessions with some of the big names connected to some of the best-known gaming companies in India along with the game development competition. And the very first session of the day will be held by Rohit Gupta, the CEO of Rolocule Games! He needs no introduction. But we just can’t help but be proud of a man who has done what very few have managed to in India till date!
Rohit is on a mission to give the world entertainment in a manner that people simply cannot live without. His first love is making games and second love is finding solutions. He has the knack of being able to address the most complex of problems with the simplest of solutions. After a stint at Infosys he left India to get a degree in electronic arts from Columbia University in New York. He then joined EA-where he worked on the SIMS-3 franchisee. Not satisfied making games for others, he came back & that’s how Rolocule was born in the year of 2010 which he co-founded with is college friend Anuj Tandon. Being a design fanatic and a programmer, his hunger for excellence is insatiable and the motivating factor behind many leading products that Rolocule now creates. He believes that “nothing is Impossible” and is extremely fortunate to have found a team that shares the same motto.
Rolocule is a reflection of the man who created the company. As a company, Rolocule believes that art and technology when put together have the power to create magic. Together, they are creating an alternate universe that provides unlimited entertainment.

This technology uses the capability of the Apple TV as a complete entertainment system.
Since the inception of the company in 2010, it was won quite a few awards.

We have a feeling that many more are on the way!
