“There is immense potential for gaming cafes and gaming in general in India. But we felt that cafes usually focus too much on e-sports games and alienate the casual crowd and thus we decided to create a place that caters to gamers, non-gamers, cosplayers and anime lovers,” says Harish Suri – Founder, Arknemesis Gaming
In short, Arknemesis Gaming will be an exclusive cross-platform gaming lounge where customers can play games the way never before played in India or relax and have a quick bite or watch TV or browse the Net in a safe, secure and friendly environment.
“We aim to grow gaming in India, attract gaming publishers to open offices here and take professional E-sports to the next level. But most importantly, we would like to make sure we cater to all sorts of gamers. While initiating this project I knew I had to get the best equipment which was synonymous with gamers.” Harish adds.
Arknemesis plans to open more outlets in other major cities, offerings its own unique ambience. Opening such cafés will increase interest and awareness about not only about the latest games, but also the latest gaming technology. The startup’s goal is to offer a platform to bring gamers together in India using both cafes and social media platforms.
