Gaming is  
Our Passion__


WASD Interactive is an independent game studio based in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh. It was founded by Yashaswi Ponnur and Vinil Rao Mahendrakar, two childhood friends who are passionate about games.

Startup idea:
When it comes to us, being born in the ’90s in India, my friend (Vinil) and I (Yashaswi) grew up playing cartridge video games,  and then computer games.
Video games have always been part of my life and that passion inspired me to pursue my graduation into game development. I worked with 3 different companies and felt that we can develop amazing games for all age groups across the world. We resigned from our jobs and started this company.

We at WASD Interactive strive to bring a new and fresh spirit into mobile game development. By providing new perspectives to exceptional talent we can enable change, getting our hands dirty and facilitating each individual's best work and self.
