Raji – An Ancient Epic – it’s an action adventure set in ancient India. Raji: An Ancient Epic takes you through an intense and emotional story of Raji, who is determined to find her brother and bring peace to the human realm. The story of Raji: An Ancient Epic is a witness of how Raji evolves through the atrocities of war and the loss of loved ones. She takes upon herself to find an end to this reckless war, which can only happen if she manages to break down the might and the stratagem devised by the great lord of demons, Mahabalasura.
“The inspiration for our art-style is from Hindu and Balinese mythology which blends gracefully to the characters design, granting a varied palette of color and style to choose from. Every environment in the game is treated as an ancient Indian painting helping to portray the story of Raji, in exquisite detail.” – Shruti Ghosh, Founder and Game Artist
