YRF and Games2win launch ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy’ game

MUMBAI: Yash Raj Films’ licensing division Yash Raj Films Licensing, in association with mobile games company Games2win, has launched a game called ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy’ for its upcoming detective film.

Games2win’s second game is based on YRF’s and Dibakar Banerjee Productions’ ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy’, directed by Dibakar Banerjee starring Sushant Singh Rajput.

Yash Raj Films VP of licensing and merchandising Rohit Sobti said, “’Detective Byomkesh Bakshy’ is an intelligent and entertaining film and we are happy to say that the game has turned out excellently. We hope fans of ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy’ experience and enjoy the thrill of their favourite character while playing this game.”

Currently available on the Google Play store, the game is India’s first movie-based hidden objects game. The hidden objects game category is very popular worldwide among users of all age groups.

Games2win has merged the game engine and the movie character to create the game, which is mainly based on the central character.

Games2win co-founder and CEO Alok Kejriwal said, “We are delighted to have made a fantastic game inspired by the legendary IP of Byomkesh Bakshy. The game play of being a detective and solving almost real-life criminal cases is the magical proposition of this game. It’s amazing that the hidden objects mechanic of the game and the detective theme of the movie are perfectly synced.”

Users can play the role of an apprentice who moves gradually to become a detective via role-play with the target of finding 200+ objects in the game. They can also solve criminal cases while assisting Byomkesh Bakshy as game play modes change from case to case. On completing all the levels, users will be awarded a ‘Detective Certificate’, which can be shared on social media platforms.

The company has created special artwork to recreate the look and feel of Byomkesh’s Calcutta of the 1940s.
