Even the environment has been designed from scratch including the terrain, foliage (trees, bushes and grass) using the knowledge acquired prior the design stage of the game. The environment was then designed according to assumptions how the ancient Sri lanka would have been.
The story is purely fictional including the characters in it. The music of the game was composed purely by Sri Lankans and also the dialogues and other sound effects.
Kanchayuda is a well thought out digital content which fits the category very well. With a very experienced team consisting of technology enthusiasts, digital media gurus and game developers. The team has worked hard to build some strong traction with downloads and social media presence. Being Sri Lanka’s first 3D action role playing game, it is built using up to date technology. The front end user experience deserves credit although there are some room for improvement. The storyline connects well with the audience. Overall, it’s a good application that promotes technology development within the entertainment industry that can deliver a highly competitive product in the local market with a potential expansion into the international markets. It captures the audience and does what it says on the tin.
