In this exciting new superhero game, players can team up with Chakra and his friends to stop villains who want to take over the streets of Mumbai! Train your character, unlock new powers, and bring villains to justice or side with them in their quest for world domination! Your journey will let you explore Mumbai and its many famous landmarks including The Gateway of India and the Bandra Worli Sea Link. Through the city you’ll find innocent people who need your help and meet famous heroes with important quests.
“Roblox is India’s entertainment platform of the future,” commented Sharad Devarajan, CEO of Graphic India and Co-creator of Chakra The Invincible. “With over 650 million people under the age of 25, India’s youth market is ready to engage and transform the world. The opportunity to leverage Roblox’s leading immersive platform to create new experiences will usher in a bold new age for Indian creativity, fandom, and storytelling. Our Chakra The Invincible game is just the beginning, and we are excited to help build the Roblox eco-system in the country.”

I think people around the world will be excited by Chakra’s tales and will accept him as a hero for themselves.”
