"So far it's a joy to behold, from the sunlit domes and turrets that disappear into its misty skylines to the nimble, flowing movements of Raji herself - a puny but tenacious figure in red, her braid whipping behind her as she slices away at tusked ogres and squat toad creatures with a glowing trident.
"Raji: An Ancient Epic was one of the most impressive games we saw at India's 2017 Nasscom Game Developer Conference, and now you can sample it for yourself. Developer Nodding Heads Games recently uploaded a free demo to Steam, which gives you a good feel for its combat and a great feel for its sumptuous music and environment"
"Considering that Raji: An Ancient Epic has been in development by a team of just eight people over a period of 10 months, it has absolutely no right to look or play as brilliantly as it does. By far the best-looking and most polished game at the conference, it's an action game that channels God of War but with a distinctly Indian flavor."
“Every piece of the game is imbued with elements of Ancient Indian and Southeast Asian history. The developers actually traveled to Bali to gather inspiration from the demonic-looking Indonesian statues for the game's hand-painted art. They've also incorporated handcrafted Mandala puzzles, which play an important role in environmental storytelling and allow for breathing room between bouts of challenging combat
