Karna Krishnan


Identifying with the word ‘gamer’ all his life, Karna decided to convert his passion into a career and joined the India Games industry 15 years ago.

Currently heading Zapak’s India focussed IP games business, Karna has played an active part across the game development life cycle, bringing Little Singham, Little Krishna, and other Little titles (currently in development) to millions of Indian Gamers.

Prior to joining Zapak, Karna worked in Gameshastra (bringing industry defining Bollywood games such as Don 2, Krrish 3 and Kochadaiyaan to the Indian consumer), Zealcity (A Cricket Mobile Games Endeavour backed by Krishnamachari Srikkanth), and Sify Gaming (bringing Massive Multiplayer Online Games to the Indian market back in the broadband/game cafe era).

Bringing IP to interactive life in a mobile form factor and delighting and re-engaging IP consumers with mobile games is a speciality that Karna enjoys. When he isn’t busy at play at his day-job, Karna is hard at work, honing his Gamer skills on his Xbox or re-imagining how he would bring Mahabharatha alive as an interactive digital experience to the world.
