Dastan Games is a two-person indie studio based out of Bangalore India. They try to make experiences that are novel and fun.
Dastan Games came into being in late 2014 when its founders Abhineet and Siddharth both came to terms with their true calling, making games. After leaving their day jobs they decided to pursue their passion for making interesting games whole-heartedly and started quickly prototyping new ideas for their first game. After a few months of throwing around ideas, they finally settled on what was to become their first game, The Light Inside Us. After releasing The Light Inside Us, they've worked on a number of projects some in collaboration with other studios, most recently Big Boot Games, the creators of the award winning board game MonarchyAfter that
They're currently working on two new games, Steps N Dragons and The Crimson Glider with the extremely talented Game Designers from Big Boot Games.
