Raji: an Ancient Epic Released

Raji: an Ancient Epic is now available for Windows, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Switch, offering an action/adventure "steeped in ancient Indian folklore, artwork, and music." The PC edition is available on the Epic Games Store (naturally enough, given the title) as well as Steam. Publisher Super.com and developer Nodding Heads Games attempt to curry favor with a new Cinematic Trailer and some spicy details:
Set in the vibrant world of ancient Indian and Southeast Asian culture and folklore, Raji: An Ancient Epic is a beautifully crafted action-adventure drawn and rendered in the traditional Pahari art style. As Raji, you are thrust into a deadly war that not only separates you from your brother, but threatens the entire world. This young girl has been chosen by the gods to stand against a horrific demonic invasion with the help of a diverse line-up of weapons and powers. Throughout the game, you must master new skills, weapons, and adopt strategies for each unique situation to overcome the odds and defend the human race.

Features of Raji: An Ancient Epic include:

  • Rich Storytelling: Experience a story of siblings. Brother and sister, Raji and Golu, separated by the attacking demonic hordes, now find themselves in the middle of a great war. Raji has taken it upon herself to find her brother and put an end to this reckless conflict.
  • Stunning Artwork: Inspired by ancient Indian mythology and medieval architecture, the game brings a refreshing new style to the genre. Every corner of the game’s environment is drawn in the Pahari art style and combines hand-painted textures, rendered in 3D.
  • Exciting and Challenging Combat: Choose from a variety of powerful weapons, including the traditional Trishul and Sharanga bow, all gifted to Raji by the gods.
  • Explore a Memorable Universe: For the very first time, experience a game set in ancient India and infused with Hindu and Balinese mythology.
