Raji : An Ancient Epic! The Best Indian Game?
About Raji : An Ancient Epic
Raji: An Ancient Epic is the first game developed by Nodding Heads Games based in Pune, Maharashtra, India. The game was developed by a team of 13 people. A 6-person team at Nodding Heads Games began development on Raji: An Ancient Epic in January 2017. The developers cited Bastion and Journey as being major influences on the game, and God of War, Ico, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and Dark Souls as other influences. Nodding Heads Games attempted to secure funding for the game through Kickstarter with a funding goal of £120,000 in 2017. The campaign raised over £66,000 but fell short of its funding goal. A 20-minute demo of the game was made available as a free download on 8 November 2017 alongside the Kickstarter, and was also playable at the Indian Games Expo 2017 and the 2017 Nasscom Game Developer Conference.
Raji was included in the Square Enix Collective in October 2017. The game was developed for Microsoft Windows. Nodding Heads Games co-founder and lead designer Avichal Singh stated in November 2017 that they also planned to release the game on consoles. He stated that they had begun “the dev kit conversation” with Microsoft but had not yet approached Sony or Nintendo. He added, “It’s a matter of constraints we follow to make sure the game is running on these platforms because they have technical constraints. As long as they can keep to that we will be good. Unreal Engine 4 makes life a bit easier. You have direct porting options as well.”
Nodding Heads Games announced a partnership with game publisher Super.com in March 2019. The game was demoed at the annual India Game Developer Conference in Hyderabad, Telangana in October 2019. A new demo of the game was made available through Steam on 23 March 2020. An Xbox One demo of the game was released in July 2020 as part of the Xbox Summer Game Fest.
Raji : An Ancient Epic Costs ₹ 539 on Steam.
