With the ban of PUBG along with a total of 118 more Chinese apps, many niche indie game developers are now developing new PUBG knockoffs. Some having different settings(location or the story of the game). While others being blatant knockoffs.
One such new game which is coming up is FAU-G, developed by ‘nCore Games’ a Bengaluru-based game developer is dubbed t be an acronym of Fearless and United: Guards. Now if the naming sense seems familiar to you, that is because it is.
nCore Games Co-Founder Vishal Gondal has in a statement to Indian Express revealed that the timing of the release of the game is just a coincidence with the banning of the popular game PUBG and was apparently in development as early as May 2020.
The game will recreate some of the major Military events, with the first one being the faceoff at Ladakh’s Galwan Valley. Now as a cynic it feels as if that is a method of shameless marketing playing with the emotions of the Indians who are invested in the incidence. But also it might as well be just bringing the said situation to light and rouse the sense of Nationalism. It is tough to say.
But according to the team 20 per cent of the net revenue generated from this game will be donated to the ‘Bharat Ke Veer Trust’ which supports the families of Indian armed force martyrs.
The gameplay will be a Third-Person Shooter experience. The setting will be the various Indian Military events over the years starting with the Galwan Valley in Ladakh standoff.
nCore Games will be releasing Fau-G(Fearless and United: Guards) on Apple App Store and Google Play Store in October.
nCore Games will also be releasing 2 more games, one based on Cricket and the other one relating to music.
