Following period of Switch exclusivity.
To breathe life into its world, Nodding Head has drawn heavily on Indian folklore and culture; as Christian Donlan explained in his Recommended review, “This is the work of a small studio in India, and it’s a game built on Hindu and Balinese myths and artistic traditions. Vishnu and Durga’s roving conversation shapes the narrative, cut-scenes are handled by shadow puppets or replaced entirely by the discovery of huge, vivid murals within the game world itself.”
What follows is a blend of third-person exploration and combat that, while familiar, is exceedingly well implemented. “It’s transporting,” concluded Christian, “Raji’s a shortish game but a very rich one – the sheer scale of environments and the sense of adventure is properly intoxicating…This game is generous and heartfelt and magical and I think it’s the beginning of something brilliant.”
Raji: an Ancient Epic should cost around £20 when it comes to Xbox One, PS4, and PC on 15th October, and if you’d like to take a peek before release day, there’s a demo available on Steam right now.
