“Educational games represent an effective means for gaining knowledge and are set to shape the future” Santanu Basu, Founder, Let’s Game Now.

Let’s Game Now is an online gaming portal started by a group of regular gamers who decided to conduct online tournaments for other gamers like them. The portal hosts free and paid regular online tournaments for Valorant (solo and squad), Call of Duty Mobile (Squad), Dota 2 (solo mid and team), and many other games. Let’s Game Now is one of the fastest-growing gaming portals in India. The online gaming industry in India is growing at a breakneck speed, expecting to generate revenue of ₹11,900 crore by the financial year 2023, growing at a CAGR of 22%. Gaming has lately come of age in India, becoming a mainstream sporting event, especially for the young. Once dismissed as unproductive by many, gaming is now slowly being perceived as a full-blown career option. Once you play innovative games, you will crave a better experience with more thrill and fun.

Let's Game Now embarked on its venture in 2013 alongside Asia's longest-running E-sports football tournament, AFGC, which spans across 18 countries. In 2019, they proudly hosted the Virtual Bundesliga Indian Edition and Roland Garros. It was in the same year, 2019, that Let's Game Now came into existence, driven by the desire to expand their gaming offerings and welcome more passionate gamers to join in their journey. They introduced India’s first AI software integrated with the platform that enables the users to review their own gameplay. The platform enabled the creation of highlight reels to share the best moments with friends and followers and share their match analysis with friends, coaches, or anyone in the world. A player can now review their performance by going through the recording or watching the highlights. Artificial intelligence-based recommendations further improved this offering.
