Cricket Revolution released on Steam!

Oct 30th, 2009–Mindstorm Studios announced today that Cricket Revolution is now available for customers to purchase on Steam. The long awaited online multiplayer PC game marks a historic release as the first full scale video game title to release from Pakistan on a global scale.

Cricket Revolution brings highly innovative gameplay and unique multiplayer features to the genre of cricket games, enabling players to match their wits and cricketing skills against each other from around the globe. The game has a rich feature set with offline modes, an intelligent AI, online live leaderboards for competitive play, and a comprehensive statistics tracking system allowing players to track their entire cricketing career online.

“CR will hopefully change the way we view cricket games,” said Babar Ahmed, CEO Mindstorm Studios.“With its emphasis on online multi-play and its comprehensive game play mechanics, CR will give a completely new competitive dimension to this genre. We’re getting great feedback from our gamers, and we’re excited!”

“Cricket, the world’s second most popular sport, has been very underserved so far,” said Faraz Ahmed, Vice-CEO Mindstorm Studios.“The few games that do make it into the market are fairly expensive and either lack proper game mechanics or simply end up as cricket simulators with little or no 3D offering. With CR we hope to change all that.”

After this digital release on Steam, the game will hit the retail shelves shortly in UK, Australia, and South Africa via Mindstorm’s retail distribution partners.
