FAU-G, aka Fearless and United Guards, have finally been launched and are now available for download on Google Play. Developed by NCore Games, the action mobile game comes as a home-based alternative to PUBG Mobile, which was banned by the government last September along with other Chinese apps. FAU-G was originally slated to launch in November, but after a long delay, the title was finally released on January 26 in honor of Republic Day. During this time, FAU-G saw a surprising number of registrations in its early days.
FAU-G is now Launched on Google Play, And in an interview with NDTV, Gondal talks about the game in more detail, its target audience, money-making strategies and future plans to enter the world of sports. You can watch the full interview below or read the revised summaries for clarity.
NDTV: Congratulations on starting the game! FAU-G crossed four million registrations in its first day on the Google Play Store. It has the highest number of pre-registrations in India. Can you tell us more about what to expect from FAU-G when players first download the game?
Vishal Gondal: FAU-G was the first time developers I was trying to create original Indian stories – the so-called Indian IP. So I believe the response we got was extraordinary. This is the way it works. For example, if you watch a Netflix or Amazon Prime video there are foreign shows like Narcos. But, when it comes to Indian movies and Indian shows, they dominate. If you look at any platform, finally there is Indian content and Indian IPs. Gaming is the only place where Indians do not have access to the best quality Indian content.
Most of the games came from Chinese or Korean or other parts of the world, so I wanted to make sure that people liked them, what they were associated with and what they were connecting with. With any Indian from Kashmir to Kanyakumari I think, [one point of interest] We can connect with full dedication to our soldiers, our faujis and the sacrifices they made for the country.
I believe young people, in particular, don’t really know about it because they are all immersed in the world of their computer or mobile games. So, the idea is to not only give people the experience of playing with FAU-G, but actually let them live the life of a soldier and experience being on the frontlines.
FAU-G has been compared to PUBG. Can you shed some light on the gameplay similarities between the two? How is it different or better than PUBG? Also, PUBG is making a re-entry in India. Are you ready to turn the competition upside down?
When it comes to entertainment, there is foreign content, and then there is content that grows at home and is Indian. For example, we have Spider-Man and we have Krish. Everyone loves Spider-Man, but you know it’s not a story you know. He’s in New York, which is not a story for all of us. Similarly, if PUBG is a great product you know the timeline, the storylines, the characters are not really related to the average Indian. In fact, they are more eastern characters, if you look at PUBG and the stuff they did.
Second, I doubt whether the PUBG will ever elect Indian soldiers and especially Indian soldiers fighting on the borders with our soldiers, some of these individuals have PUBG’s own loyalty. So, in the case of FAU-G, we as Indians are trying to give Indians what they want, which is a gaming experience, a gaming experience where they can fight enemies – like Call of Duty. For example, Call of Duty, World War I, talks about the American War in Afghanistan, so Western audiences associate it with Call of Duty because it was the war they lived in, or where their parents or their grandparents fought. But an Indian has little to do with World War II or Afghanistan, so I believe that with FAU-G, the obvious difference is our theme, our storyline. See the dialogs we created [for the game]. We use Hindi and Tamil so it is as local as we can.
Finally, with FAU-G we also wanted to give a meaning to their gameplay. This means that when they buy anything in the game, 20 per cent of our net income is donated to the Bharat Kay Veer Trust created for the jawans and here is a way for gamers to contribute positively to the country.
You had earlier announced that 20 per cent of the proceeds from the game would go to the Bharat K Veer Trust. But what exactly is the money-making strategy here? Are there ads or in-app purchases for the game?
For games like FAU-G, which are essentially action games, our biggest revenue stream comes from in-app purchases and not from advertising. So, the app has a whole host of purchased modules. You can buy skins and weapons and we will continue to add more items. Keep in mind that PUBG has been in development for five years and we have less than a year for development. So, the way games work is that we keep coming up with versions that help make the game better.
We also have another interesting way of making money, which is trading. Right now, there is a very interesting concept, which we call Easter eggs, where people can find and buy fau-g t-shirts and other items that also contribute to our money making.
We think beyond just gaming and thinking about creating the whole world of FAU-G, where we trade and the whole host come together.
Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar promoted the game through his Twitter and Instagram accounts. How does he participate in the process of the game and its ideology? Do players expect to see character skins based on Akshay Kumar in the game?
The Akshay Sar organization is very passionate about our soldiers. At my other company GOQii, we are in touch with him. So, when I think of nCore games, our idea is to make a game based on Indian soldiers. Game conceptualizations started sometime in 2019, but when the whole Galvan Valley incident happened, we started working on that level and he gave us the title. Therefore, the FAU-G title is fully credited and attributed to Akshay Kumar.
He is the one who thinks about it, he is deeply involved in our creative process, he sees the structure of every game. He commented on every character, every weapon. In fact, the theme song and the anthem were also produced by Akshay [Kumar] Himself. Once again, he was really committed and passionate about our soldiers and his point was that our young men at one end were playing all these action games and on the other hand they did not know what our soldiers were doing at the border. So, it’s about telling stories, so we started with Story Mode, where we tell you the stories of our soldiers. As things progress, we will see other modes including Bottle Royal mode and PVP mode. All I can tell you is that Akshay Kumar has been a really big supporter and helped us take his creative superpower FAU-G to where it has been so far.
The FAU-G was inspired by the Galvan Valley incident, but seems to have its own storyline focusing on the India-China conflict. Do you think this will further provoke anti-China sentiment in the current situation?
Our game does not add or remove anything about anti-China sentiments. I really think about what actually happens on the field. We are just telling a story and most of our young people who play games know this story. As far as ground reality is concerned, we all know what the geopolitical situation is. All I can say is that the only hope is that the situation will improve, and that all these fights are limited to mobile games and not in the real world.
We have a question from Gagandeep Singh, the big streamer in India. His question is, will this game target sports ఎస్s or will it be a casual game?
Sure, we’ll get into sports. The way games are evolving is that you can’t start a game directly and get into sports. You first start a game, create a community, introduce PVP, introduce Bottle Royale and once you have a good community, you get involved in sports. So, sports comes later and does not come earlier. This is similar to other games. For cricket tournaments to take place, you must first play a number of gully cricket matches and state matches before the game explodes. Similarly, we believe that FAU-G will eventually reach Sports, but I would say we are at least eight to 12 months away from there.
We have another question from Shagufta Iqbal, who is the gamer and her question is do you need a high-end device to run FAU-G or can even low-end devices run it?
We now support any platform from Android 8 onwards. Android 8 is at a very low level today, it was launched almost four years ago. I would say we went to a very good limit to support low-level devices. However, if even less support is needed [platforms], We will look into it. I believe Android 8 is a good cutoff, but at the same time if you have a high performance phone from our settings you can increase the performance mode by taking the game to a more ultra-performance mode. -Rendered resolution and graphics. We return quality control to gamers in the game.
