At a time when egaming is gaining immense popularity in India, Chennai-based gaming startup Nemesis Gaming, will be launching South Asia’s biggest gaming café in Nungambakkam, Chennai on Friday. Arknemesis Gaming will be a state-of-the-art Gaming Lounge and Café, which will offer high intensity and competitive PC and Console gaming coupled with a Café and a Billiards Lounge to attract a much wider audience.

The 6500-square feet gaming café will house 68 high-end gaming PCs, four PS4 Pros, three snooker tables and 21 4K TVs. The café can house up to 200 people.

Arknemesis Gaming will offer an all-round and unique Entertainment Experience with high-end PCs, Consoles and Virtual Reality peripherals along with free Wi-Fi for paying customers. Once opened, the café also has on offer, a wide range of fully licensed games across genres including RPGs, RTS, FPS, MMOs, MOBAs, etc.

Founded in May 2016 by entrepreneur Harish Suri and his parents, Suri G and Vidya Suri, Arkenemesis is a bootstrapped gaming startup that aims to open such gaming cafes to give gamers a unique gaming experience. The company says that the idea is to not only promote gaming in India but also cater to all types of gamers.

“There is immense potential for gaming cafes and gaming in general in India. But we felt that cafes usually focus too much on e-sports games and alienate the casual crowd and thus we decided to create a place that caters to gamers, non-gamers, cosplayers and anime lovers,” says Harish Suri, founder, Arknemesis Gaming

All the gaming PC’s at Arknemesis Café will be powered by top of the line components by the industry’s best component manufacturers. Brands like ASUS, Corsair and NVIDIA make up the PC Gaming systems. Sony for Playstation consoles.

“Arknemesis is the first game café to offer its users a true 4k experience and with its unique concept will attract all kinds of gamers. To ensure a continuous uninterrupted game play at all times, the café PCs run on the best ASUS hardware and gaming peripherals. The graphics cards used in all the systems are designed to run 30% cooler than normal because of our patented DirectCU II technology while the motherboards are equipped with the ROG SupremeFX Audio solution for a rich gaming experience. ASUS has been actively supporting game cafes over the last few years with its ‘ROG Certified Café’ program.” – Vinay Shetty, ASUS Regional Director – India and South Asia, Component Business.

Vamsi Krishna, Head - Consumer Marketing, South Asia, NVIDIA says that there are 12 to 15 million gamers in India and only about 300 decent gaming cafes across the country.

“This provides investors with a significant opportunity to address this community, and NVIDIA is working with café owners to enable them to understand the best practices in the business. Arknemesis, an NVIDIA Platinum-certified café with the latest tech in gaming like 4K and VR will become a solid benchmark for other café investors to follow,” he adds.

Other metros and major cities in India too will soon see more such cafes as Arknemesis expands itself beyond Chennai over the next few years.
