Gamaya Inc., has launched a new video game, “Gamaya Legends,” which is based on one of the most popular Indian folktales – the Ramayana — aimed at Indian American kids. The video game is a 3D action adventure game that offers a unique blend of the real and virtual worlds, bringing folktales and stories of the past to a virtual life categorized as ‘Toys to Life,’ similar to Skylanders or Disney Infiniti, according to a press release.
The game revolves around a sinister evil that is destroying the legend, and the characters from the Ramayana have been brought into this world to avoid harm. In the real world, these characters appear as toys, but players have the power to bring them back to life, and save their world from destruction. As the users play the game and save the legend, they will discover scrolls that reveal the original Ramayana story.
In addition to the game and the toys, there is an animated cartoon series that focuses on the back stories of all the characters, created with 3D graphics that further immerse the players into the fascinating world of the Ramayana.
“Gamaya Legends” is aimed at children between the ages of 7 and 12. The complete set of characters include Rama, Mahiravana, Hanuman, Sugriva, Sita, Jatayu, Lakshmana, Indrajit, Anjana and Ravana.
