Zainuddin Fahad of Ogre Head Studio first started working in the games industry in India several years ago, at the age of 19. He started as an artist making games in GameMaker in his spare time. He enjoyed the work and the things he was learning, but eventually found it all growing stale.
"The outsourcing industry for games is thriving and booming in India but I had realized that we don't have an identity. We are slogging here working as hard as anybody in the games industry, contributing to AAA games. but nobody knows or even cares about us," Fahad says. "It's not that we don't have talent over here, but the problem, I believe, is with the vision and leadership, which is not led by aesthetics and designs but rather other things which do not even matter."
