While India has been behind the rest of the world when it comes to game development, it doesn’t mean we aren’t catching up. There are more studios opening up in India that assist in making globally successful games such as Red Dead Redemption 2, Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed and countless others. However, there are plenty of games that have been produced and developed in India from the ground up that are coming to consoles and phones soon or are already out right now. Here are four incredible games that were developed in India:
1. Prince of Persia Remake
Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Remake is about to launch all over the world soon and it would be prudent to point out that the game was developed at the Mumbai and Pune studios of Ubisoft. The game is a remake of the original game that was released in 2003 with updated graphics and gameplay mechanics. The game has been in development for a couple of years and it will be released for PC, PS4 and the Xbox One on January 21st 2021.
2. Raji: An Ancient Epic
Developed by ‘Nodding Heads Games’ from Pune, Raji: An Ancient Epic is already out for the Nintendo Switch and will be making its way to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC later this month. The game has been highly influenced by Transistor and Bastion by SuperGiant Games. Oddly enough, the game needed £120,000 but failed to achieve their goal. However, the studio still pulled through and managed to complete the game.
3. Ghajini – The Game
Remember the movie? Well, this game was released at the same time in 2008 by FXLabs and Geetha Arts. While the game is not considered to be that great, it was still a great attempt at developing and releasing a 3D action-adventure game at a time when India wasn’t really known for making games. It had an impressive render of Aamir Khan who plays the character of Sanjay Singhania. It follows the same story as the movie which was a rip-off of Memento.
We all know about FAU-G or Fearless and United: Guards that is set to release for smartphones later this month. The game has been in development for months and is based on the incidents that occurred in the Galwan Valley region. The game was under fire for using a stock image for their poster and having a hilarious play on the name of the game based on the popular Battle Royale game PUBG. It has been described as “a new multiplayer mid-core gaming title” by the developers which means it may not have any form of battle-royale mode.
