Raji: An Ancient Epic Channels Classic God of War in New Footage



Raji: An Ancient Epic

A new trailer for Raji: An Ancient Epic has dropped, and it brings to mind one of the most beloved franchises in gaming.

The footage shows off a selection of platforming and combat challenges. While the former seem largely scripted, the latter are intriguing.

Facing off against oversized, imaginatively designed foes, protagonist Raji moves with a speed and flexibility reminiscent of Kratos from the earliest God of War games. The similarities are emphasised by the distant fixed camera perspective.

However, Raji: An Ancient Epic takes place in a mythologised version of Ancient India, following a young girl as she fights against a demon invasion in a quest to save her younger brother.

OnlySP spoke to one of the game’s lead designers, Avichal Singh, back in 2017 to discover more about the project’s background, inspirations, and goals.

Layers of Fear 2 Launching Late Next Month



Layers of Fear 2

Layers of Fear 2 has been talked about for a while now and is finally coming late next month.

Announced today by publisher Gun Media, the sequel to the psychological romp through artistic ego Layers of Fear is set to launch May 28 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Gameplay-wise, the sequel looks to cover similar ground as its predecessor. As a first-person psychological horror with “an emphasis on exploration and story,” players meander through heavily-scripted set-pieces while solving puzzles and being scared a whole lot.

Layers of Fear 2, though, will be swapping the paintbrush for the dizzying heights of Hollywood. According to the game’s Steam synopsis, players “control a Hollywood actor who heeds the call of an enigmatic director to take on the lead role in a film shot aboard an ocean liner.”

Stifled by their own acting ambitions, the protagonist finds themselves alone and marooned on an increasingly nightmarish boat. The game’s unnamed protagonist must navigate their own past and the challenges the director sets them to unlock the secret to not just the film they are starring in, but their own motivations.

The original Layers of Fear was a captivating take on modern, story-driven horror, so the sequel’s inventive premise and greater scope are welcomed. While the sequel is embarking to a radically different setting, the title looks likely to recapture the original’s claustrophobic, atmospheric level design.
