The first Indian-developed console game is upon us

icon_news1Milestone Interactive’s monthly release lists always give us something interesting to talk about, from new unannounced SKUs, to release dates, and price revisions. But this one was really a surprise. You would think that the release of the first wholly Indian-developed console game would have some amount of buzz around it, especially in the month of its release.

PlayStation India boss Atindriya Bose had mentioned that Sony had tied up with a bunch of Indian studios to develop games for the PS2. In a later interview, he said that of those, Hyderabad-based Aurono Technologies’ Hanuman game was the farthest along and would be the first Indian PS2 game to hit store shelves.

And while we still await any news on the Indian-developed Kho kho PS2 game with bated breath, Aurona’s game, it seems, is finally ready for release. It’s titled Hanuman: Boy Warrior and is pegged as an Action-Adventure game. Targetting the casual PS2 owner, the game is priced at an attractive Rs 499. There is still no release date announced, but it should be available around the second half of this month.

Hanuman: Boy Wonder is not only targetted at the Indian market, but also at Indians abroad, and the game may well see a release in other SCEE territories, particularly the UK. We’ll have more information on the game soon, and check back for our review as well.

Until then, discuss away.

Note: Other notable inclusions in this month’s Milestone catalogue are SOCOM: Confrontation (with Bluetooth headset) for Rs 2,799 and Xbox 360-exclusive racing sim Race Pro for Rs 2,499.


The game is set to release on March 25, and there is a launch event planned in Mumbai on that day.
