Raji: An Ancient Epic is an action-adventure video game that hit the Nintendo Switch about a month ago. Set in Ancient India, it stars the titular Raji, a young girl who stands against a demonic invasion.
Finding representation in video games is a chore for Indians around the globe, so Raji‘s commitment to the aesthetic and feel of true Indian culture shines through. So, in the run up to its wider release October 15, Nirav shares his thoughts on the game’s depiction and of Hindu mythology.
