Sony Online Entertainment and Virgin Comics are planning to launch multiplayer online video game, based on comic book series Ramayan 3392 A.D.
Ramayan 3392 A.D. (formerly called Ramayana Reborn) is a comic book series based upon the Indian epic called Ramayana. It is written by Shamik Dasgupta and the art is by Abhishek Singh, and it was created based on a story by Deepak Chopra and Shekhar Kapur. (WikiPedia)
The concept of online gaming is catching up in India. Specially, multiplayer online game based on Indian epic Ramayan can create quite a wave if designed and marketed properly.
This reminded me a new mythological series started on Zee TV called 'Ravan'. Have you guys ever seen any episode of that series? I was initially excited about this as I thought it would give us more information about Ravan's personal life and his greatness. I started watching it and after couple of weeks, when they started showing Ravan's grand father's bull shit, I got fedup with that.
The whole dialog delivery and dialogs itself are so cheaply written. Come on, you are showing a mythological series, you should have some decency on the screen. Specially the episode where Ravan meets Mandodari was picturized as if we are watching a masala movie. Its just full of crap. You can not beat the original Ramayan and Mahabharat serials. Those two were legendary series.
