During today’s Indie World showcase by Nintendo, it was revealed that Raji: An Ancient Epic by Nodding Heads Games releases later today. It is an action adventure game that is set in Ancient India. What makes it unique is that it tells the story of a young Indian girl named Raji who takes on various demons as they invade the human realm. She has been chosen by the Gods to fight off the demons. Her main mission, though, is to rescue her little brother and finally face the demon Mahabalasura. While she is at it, she has to save the entire human race from extinction too. That’s a lot of pressure. Will she emerge victorious in the end? Play and find out!
From the gameplay bits that were shown in the video, it is evident that it has an influence of Prince of Persia with its wall-running elements. It looks like an epic tale waiting to unfold as the fearless Raji gets access to various divine weapons and powers. As it was mentioned in the video, the game takes inspiration from Indian culture as well as mythology. It brings forth the diversity that India has to offer and honestly, it’s a breath of fresh air. Players will get to experience something different in Raji: An Ancient Epic since Hindu Mythology is a territory not many developers have ventured into. It will be absolutely wonderful to see how this little but powerful girl faces off with various demons.
The art style is based on Indian paintings and the architecture is styled on Rajasthan’s structures, the combination that this game offers is nothing like anything we have seen before. If you want to try this game out, it releases today as a timed console exclusive on Nintendo Switch. You can get it from the eshop and it will also release for PC, PS4 and Xbox One soon.
