Characters like Suppandi, Shambu & Tantri the Mantri, that appeared first in the pages of the magazine, have a nationwide recognition.

Nazara will be developing, publishing and marketing games, based on Tinkle and Amar Chitra Katha characters, across all app stores – Google Play, iTunes, Windows and retail outlets. “The comic brand was started by Anant Pai in an attempt to teach Indian children about their cultural heritage. We wish to honour his vision by giving today’s generation the taste of Amar Chitra Katha and Tinkle in a contemporary, and the most popular, medium of today which is mobile gaming,” said Manish Agarwal, CEO of Nazara Games.
