Sroth Code Games
Sroth Code Games (or “Sroth Code”) is a tech-development company that creates games and interactive entertainment products for consumption on mobile platforms and PCs.
Sroth Code aims to become Nepal’s ﬁrst fully-ﬂedged game development company that creates original titles for mobile platforms, PCs, and it’s own ﬂagship game, “Chronicles of the Himalayas”. The company envisions growing into a platform that can oﬀer outsourced (oﬀshored) capabilities to mainstream game developers in more advanced markets.
Rather than solving a speciﬁc problem, Sroth Code aims to help create and consolidate the niche gaming market in Nepal. The company will also help push the boundaries on what Nepalsese tech companies developing SaaS solutions, can achieve in the local, regional and eventually, the global stage.

A sectoral pioneer, Sroth Code Gamers has created a work culture for designers and game developers within Nepal, fostering the development of a collaborative coding ecosystem.
Sroth Code Games is led by Uttam Adhikari, who together with Uday Gurung, co-founded the company. The two first met in 2015, when they were both involved in relief operations for the victims of the 2015 earthquakes. When Uday learned that Uttam was running a camp for coders, called Sroth Code Camp, Uday decided to enroll for classes. There, Uttam, who had already worked as a web developer for more than seven years, learned that Uday (who also has a background in coding) shared his passion for gaming.
