As of 2015, the gaming industry is worth 111 billion dollars. While console games are still preferred by most avid gamers today, the number of PC and mobile gamers are equally high. With close to a million games on both Android and iOS, games are the most popular category of apps on the mobile platform. Multiplayer and web-enabled games on PC has only seen more adoption year on year.

Chaos means complete disorder and confusion. It is the property of a complex system whose behavior is so unpredictable as to appear random, owing to great sensitivity to small changes in conditions.

Life, by nature, is chaotic. And the human brain is beautifully designed to turn chaos into order.

Do you have what it takes to turn Chaos into order?
