Right before the last Indian general elections in 2014, iAdroit launched its Android game Verdict 2014. The game is roughly based on the Indian ballot system of voting its Prime Minister. The game became so popular that an iPhone and a Facebook version was released shortly. The game is about fighting it out for your favorite Prime Ministerial candidate in the virtual world to get him maximum seats. The most interesting part was the fact that the global result of the virtual game almost predicted the winning candidate in the actual election. This largely led to its popularity and was featured on major media channels like Headlines Today, India Today, Zee News, Channel 10, Kolkata TV, Aaj Tak, Sahara TV, 24Ghanta, etc.
24 Ghanta, one of the reputed news channels in West Bengal, paid a sudden visit to iAdroit’s Kolkata office on 12th of March, to follow the progress of our Android Game on the upcoming Indian General Elections.
Online play stores had seen a few games on the election and were getting a lukewarm response. iAdroit stole this opportunity and within a month launched Verdict 2014. An engaging and interactive game, it was modeled in a way that kept adding the global scores of virtual polls all over the world until the eve of election result in May. 24 Ghanta covered the news and termed as the best Game on the Indian General Election in 2014.
Having received huge popularity with its Android version, iAdroit decided to make the game available for non-android users by launching it on a popular social media networking site, Facebook.
