Kris Srikkanth, former India cricket captain.
A unique cricketing website that would appeal to the tastes and wants of cricket lovers and gamers around the world.
The website was required to be extremely interesting and captivating packed with exciting online and mobile cricket games, interesting downloadable and streaming videos.
Nextwave conceptualized, designed and developed the entire site right from visualization to execution. The site contains some fascinating Flash based online cricket games, which include 6 mini games and one big one-day game called Krish Cricket Challenge. The mobile versions of these games developed using JAVA are compatible with a wide variety of handsets namely Nokia, Sony, Ericsson, Motorola, Samsung and LG.
The site also contains, for budding cricketers, streaming videos of exclusive cricketing lessons by Kris Srikkanth, which were also developed and produced by Nextwave. In addition to the above the site includes some interesting downloadable items such as ringtones, wallpapers, videos and e-cards.
Multiplayer games are excellent social marketing tools for brands. These games call for excellent design besides sophisticated programming capability and delivery. Taking up the challenge Nextwave has developed multiplayer games for Cricket, Mini Golf, Cards games and Snooker. These games offer players the facility of a lobby to meet other players and create game rooms. Private game rooms where playing is by invitation only, and public game rooms open to all and also for those wishing to view players in action without participating. These games also have chat facility for players to interact and avatar creation and management options.
Nextwave Multimedia developed a Live Match Simulator engine for www.krishcricket.com. The Live Match Simulator, available both on the web and mobile phones, graphically displays the game as it is being played on the field in real time. It virtually displays every delivery bowled, shots played and every ball fielded in great detail, giving the viewer an opportunity to catch the action as it happens live. It also displays the scorecard, statistics and the match summary of the game. The simulator displays a highly accurate and one of the best live simulations of the real time game.
Nextwave also developed a Management Information System (MIS) for the website that keeps track of the user activities on the site. This system serves as an effective administrative tool in identifying and rewarding the top scorers. It also facilitates the client in making informed decisions while constructing appropriate marketing strategies.
Nextwave provided the client with a Content Management System (CMS) that allows them to independently administer the content of the website. This administrative tool lets the client add, modify or delete the data stored on the site.
The website was officially launched on the Internet by former Indian cricketer, Vinod Kambli. The launch received wide press and the media coverage across the country.
Within a short span of time since its launch, the site has received wide appreciation and to cater to the site's ever-growing user base, Nextwave has already begun working on the higher versions of the existing games while adding newer ones.
