When Raji: An Ancient Epic showed up at Nintendo's indie showcase last month, it was the well-earned culmination of a long and stressful journey for an action adventure game about a young girl chosen by the gods to be a savior. Part of what makes Raji unique, however, is where it was developed: India. There have been other games made in India, of course, but it's rare for them to get the kind of high-profile visibility that comes with Nintendo's backing.
