Travel through ancient India to combat a demon lord and rescue your younger brother.
India probably isn’t the first country that comes to mind when you think about high quality video games but there have been a number of good titles to come out of the sub-continent like Lovely Planet, Good Robot, Asura and whatnot. Nodding Heads Games’ Raji: An Ancient Epic is probably one of the more interesting games I’ve seen in a while though.
Set in ancient India, Raji follows the titular main character as she fights off demons invading her realm to rescue her brother. Ultimately, she must face Mahabalasura, the demon lord, but will call upon divine powers to aid her. Raji boasts hand-painted visuals and various locations set in the medieval era which advance the plot and have their own unique stories to tell.
Raji: An Ancient Epic is currently live on Kickstarter and requires £120,000 to achieve its funding goal. As of now, 362 backers have pledged £9,463 with 32 days to go so there’s still time to see it come to live. Check out the trailer for Raji below and the demo over on Steam.
