Raji, a young girl is chosen by the gods to fight against the demonic invasion of the human realm. Her destiny is to rescue her younger brother and face the demon lord Mahabalasura.

Key Features:

  • A universe inspired by Ancient India– Raji is inspired by Hindu and Balinese mythology, allowing us to create diverse level locations, demons, bosses and characters. The team wants to tell a story which is set in India, that has never been seen before in the gaming industry. We visited Rajasthan, India and Bali, Indonesia where we grasped the inspiration for the game’s universe.
  • Handpainted Artstyle– Each and every corner of Raji: An Ancient Epic is hand painted, this utilizes the use several pieces of software, dedication and countless hours. The environment is inspired by the medieval architecture of Rajasthan, which was the pinnacle of architectural achievement during the medieval era of India.
  • Favor of the Gods– A feature which allows the player to pick their god and customize various abilities which empower your weapons. Each god grants you an element. Choose between fire, lightning, ice, earth and rage. This feature allows you to craft your own style of game play.

If its Kickstarter campaign is successful, Raji will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. A playable demo is available on Steam for those who want to try it out.
