GRID is reimagining the way we create and use video games!

With our no-code platform Breshna, we are empowering individuals and businesses to create their own educational, training & marketing games without writing a single line of code!

Given the interactive, iterative, and inspiring nature of digital games, they appeal to the human psychology in a way most other communication tools don’t and their impact on our brains far transcends the boundaries of the virtual world. Games are popular across borders and age groups & therefore present a unique platform to reach the masses in a fun & engaging manner.

We are industry leaders in the serious games field. We have created games on reproductive health (MoHiM, Nari Paila & SurrEndo) on compassion for animals (KritterKneads), climate change (EarthFenders), Math learning (Calculasia) and Coronavirus (Coronacombat) and are currently working on games on antiracism, financial literacy, opioid crisis, child protection and entrepreneurship.

Along our journey, we have discovered "10 cheats" for leveraging mobile games to inspire positive behavior change among the bottom billion.
1. Games are a universal language, use it!
2. Digital games should be context-vigilant - use characters, user interface and backgrounds to enhance relatability of your game
3. Low-end smartphones are an untapped window of opportunity - games can be deployed in low-tech contexts (offline, low storage space etc.)
4. Literacy should not be an inclusivity criteria for players - use voice overs to engage your audience
5. Use your game as a crystal ball - leverage game design to show the future consequences of different decisions (safe space to make mistakes)
6. You don't have to rob a bank to make a game - we have developed games for as low as $5k
7. Use your game for data collection and building an evidence base - use your game to capture in-app learning progression
9. Serious game development is about trade-offs - tradeoffs between download vs retention, story vs gameplay, graphics vs size..
10. Games should be Fun! - Serious Games, as much as it sounds like an oxymoron, is a game at the end of the day and games should be fun.
