Raji An Ancient Epic Reveals India of Yore


Raji – An Ancient Epic features a setting that is little, if ever, seen in games today. Taking place in Ancient India, the game sets player’s feet on an epic adventure through the distant past. The titular character, Raji “evolves through the atrocities of war and the loss of loved ones”.

Raji – An Ancient Epic features hand-painted environments, character art style that is flavored by Southeast Asian culture. In addition, it brings “gritty and fluid” combat through the use of a variety of weapons and gods. Players work to solve puzzles while traveling through and exploring ancient forts. Along the way, players just might pick up new knowledge of Hindu and Balinese mythology.
