Paradise: An Ancient Epic, released on PS4, Switch etc. is an action adventure game set in ancient India. The title is produced by the debuting independent studio Nodding Heads Games, whose team consists of developers from Pune (India) and London. The title was shown for the first time at the end of 2017. The creators started collecting money at Kickstarter but they didn't succeed.
The main character of Raji: An Ancient Epic is a young girl named Raji. She was chosen by the gods to protect the world from a demonic invasion. During her adventure, Raji not only has to face Mahabalasura, the king of demons but also find and save Golu, her beloved younger brother.
The gameplay in Raji: An Ancient Epic is largely reminiscent of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris. The game is an action adventure in which the three-dimensional world is presented in an isometric view. The gameplay is based on battles against various types of opponents, as well as solving simple logical puzzles and avoiding traps.
The creators have prepared a fluid combat system, in which we use many weapons and special powers which Raji received from the gods. Our opponents are various kinds of demons. Interestingly, they come in many variants that depend on their rank. In one place we can fight with an enemy armed only with a simple mace, and in another place, the same opponent will have full armor and additional attacks.
All locations in Raji: An Ancient Epic were created by a team of graphic designers inspired by the traditional architecture of Rajasthan and the Indonesian island of Bali. The opponents are modeled after the traditional Hindu representations of demonic beings. The soundtrack was also influenced by that culture.
