Indian Air Force (IAF) has launched Android 3D game named Guardians of the Skies (GOTS) in India to attract Indian Youth to join and serve the country. The game was developed by a private vendor and next phase of the game is expected to launch in October.
While launching the game in Delhi, Air Marshal S Sukumar said, “It is indeed a significant milestone in our consorted campaign to connect to the best of the boys and the girls among the nation’s youth and motivate them to join the air force so as to become great patriotic men and women ready to serve the country in any situation.”
The game includes a storyline where IAF is engaged with a fictitious nation called ‘Zaruzia’, which is a politically unstable and economically under-developed country and uses war to divert the attention of its citizens. The game showcases the air force in a virtual format and devising strategy and tactics to destroy enemy’s evil intentions.
GOTS, which is freely available on Android, will be soon available on Windows and iOS platforms for mobile too, has been conceptualised to showcase the might of the air force in a virtual format with users being offered gripping air combat scenarios and realistic graphics, Sukumar said.
