The gaming scene in India is experiencing a remarkable surge. With a staggering number of downloads for gaming apps, India has solidified its position as the global leader in mobile gaming. Having a 180 million user base in fantasy sports also positions India as the largest fantasy sports market.

In a market this massive, standing out is no easy feat. Only by delivering top-notch games that not just meet but exceed the ever-changing tastes and demands of gamers can a game-developing studio thrive in this competitive landscape. Fabzen Technologies Private Limited, an ISO-certified game development powerhouse, has been reshaping India’s gaming scene.

Mr Mritunjay Kumar Yadav founded Fabzen with the vision to deliver groundbreaking games and establish the company as a leader in the industry. In 2023, Mritunjay passed over the CEO title to Ashwini Kumar, who now leads the company in its journey.

Focused on customer satisfaction, Fabzen creates and markets captivating online games. The organisation strives to spread joy, excitement, and happiness worldwide through creative, innovative, and proactive gaming experiences. Having established itself as a key player in the Indian gaming industry, Fabzen Technologies now aims for global expansion, offering accessible games to audiences across the globe.

They envision creating a world free from discrimination, where individuals can thrive and collaborate towards a brighter future. With playful, creative and out-of-the-box thinking, Fabzen Technologies wishes to contribute to the growth of the gaming industry, offering innovative games that enrich lives and bring joy to people of all backgrounds.

Mritunjay Kumar Yadav, Founder & MD, Fabzen Technologies Private Limited

Hailing from a small town in Bihar, Mritunjay, although had limited exposure to the world, he always dreamt of reaching out and building something big of his own. While studying engineering in Pune, he stumbled upon the gaming market in India and its potential. In 2017, Mritunjay founded Fabzen Technologies and single-handedly developed their debut game, Ludo Empire, and launched it in 2019.

As time passed, Mritunjay met some like-minded people who shared his vision and also believed in the potential of the Indian gaming industry. Together, they’ve propelled the company and its games to their current success.

Like it is with every new idea or invention, building Fabzen brought its set of challenges for Mritunjay. Some of the major challenges included public scepticism towards online gaming and handling any down periods during the journey. Mritunjay recalls, “What helped me deal with these challenges and overcome them was believing in my vision and remaining determined and hopeful of my success. My team and I worked on maintaining an inspirational and motivational work atmosphere so we could all grow and know that with the down periods come the up ones too.”

He adds, “Dealing with scepticism was particularly difficult. For cultivating customers’ trust in us we needed to find a delicate balance between responsibility and transparency.” They were determined to build products that instilled confidence, prioritising safety and security measures. The team ensured product stability, transparency, and user safety to build a platform users could trust without hesitation.

The Essence of Leadership

Reflecting upon his journey, Mritunjay shares, “There was this one project with a lot of challenges and a tight deadline that really tested our adaptability, resilience and coping mechanisms as a team. It turned out to be a major learning experience for all of us.

During that time, we had to stick together as a team. Open communication and supporting each other every step of the way helped a lot. It made me realise that leadership isn’t just about one person—it’s about all of us learning and growing together. And in the end, we not only met our goals but also pushed ourselves to aim even higher.”

As an afterthought, he adds, “Leading that project taught me the importance of having a clear vision and clear communication. Most importantly, it taught me that true leadership is about growing together as a team while working towards a common goal.”

The Pillars of Fabzen’s Culture

As they journey towards building a successful company, the team at Fabzen Technologies places a strong emphasis on integrating success with honesty, principles, and ethics.

Upon asking about their approach to talent acquisition and retention, Mritunjay shares,

While hiring, we look for a diverse mix of talents and skills, as different perspectives will eventually drive innovation.

What Lies Ahead for Fabzen Technologies

With evolving trends, technological advancements, and shifting user interests, 2024 is going to be the year of exponential growth for the online gaming industry. While classic games and current online platforms seem to maintain their relevance, chances are certain challenges may emerge.

However, Mritunjay believes that introducing new ideas and maintaining ongoing growth, as well as platforms that match the preferences of the target audience, would retain relevancy. He explains, “Staying updated with the changes is a necessity to avoid falling behind. I view the evolution of the gaming industry as an affirmation that the industry will remain an important aspect of the modern world, maintaining its dynamic and continual expansion.”

says Mritunjay.

Leadership Mantra

Reflecting upon his own journey as an entrepreneur, Mritunjay shares, “The advice that I would like to give to the young and talented entrepreneurs out there who are looking to embark on their journey in the gaming industry is that— embrace curiosity and have the zeal to learn new things. Keep yourself updated with the latest industry trends, but also be willing to challenge, change, and innovate. Be open to suggestions and work towards networking with your peers, as this will give way to a broader perspective. Lastly, the most important thing to keep in mind is to always prioritise your passion and believe in hard work and perseverance. Success often comes to those who are willing to put in the effort and persist through obstacles.”
