According to a Moneycontrol report released yesterday, Mumbai-based game developing company GameEon has already started working on developing an open-world game inspired by the likes of classics like GTA Vice City.
Having over 30 games in the Google Play Store with a combined download count of over 100 million, this will be the first venture of GameEon to the world of PC video gaming.
GTA Vice City is a renowned game across the world, but it managed to gain an exceptional player base in India due to its unique gameplay mechanics and enjoyable storyline. Developed by Rockstar Games and published in 2002, GTA Vice City follows the exploits of a mobster Tommy Vercetti, the game’s primary protagonist, after he is released from prison.
GameEon has decided to name their upcoming title ‘Mumbai Gullies’. According to the report, the game will allow players to explore virtual city-like environments within the game while pursuing a storyline or completing “missions”.
Mumbai Gullies will primarily be a single-player game focused on the storyline, similar to most GTA titles. However, Nikhil Malankar, founder of GameEon, has left open the possibility of a multiplayer version in the future depending on players’ feedback.
Interestingly enough, Malankar claimed that the game has already been in development for the past five years.
“We wanted a game that would represent our city just like GTA Vice City,” he said to Moneycontrol.
While it’s still unclear when will the game finally release, Malankar said that the game will likely take another 2 years to produce. He further mentioned that it’ll only be available to play on PC at the time of its release.
