  • Gaming has become a profession and not only a place for pleasure. Today, technological advancement has led to the creation of many mind-blowing games. Following the trend, KARMA could be the next big thing in the Asian gaming community.

    Nepalese indie game dev Karma project is ambitious and might bring Nepal to the map of world gaming. So, what is the game about, who is developing it, and will it be released any time soon? Let’s find out.

    Five Years On the making and still on! Why is project ‘KARMA’ huge for Nepal?

    As per one famous saying: ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day, but they were laying bricks every hour.’ That’s why KARMA, a dream project of a Nepalese artist and game developer, is still going through 3d virtual realization.

  • We will reveal more about the developer later on. Meanwhile, let’s get to know his vision for this beautiful game, the initiation of which began five years ago.

    Created with Unreal Engine 5, KARMA will set its setting in Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu. The game will offer the players an open-world experience within the local places of Nepal.

    Similarly, the Nepalese Indie Game Dev Karma Project will consist of multiple AI enemy characters, jets, and respective bases of different characters. Its first gameplay demos were revealed in 2022.

    Furthermore, during the demo revelation, we discovered that the world of Karma is set around the realistic 3D environment of medieval Nepal. Players could assume the role of an eerie four-legged monster or a flying human. Interesting, isn’t it?

  • The exposure to international games such as Mortal Kombat, Final Fantasy, Star Wars, etc, make these products available to mega masses. We hope the same happens with Karma.

    Nepalese indie game dev Karma project has been initiated and led by a Nepalese freelance developer, artist, and creative director, Ashim Shakya.

    Shakya is a graduate of Kathmandu University. Before beginning his professional journey, he obtained a Fine and Studio Arts degree from the prestigious college.

    The Nepalese national began his professional life in October 2011 as a Concept Artist for Viewfinders Studios. He was employed in the company until December 2012.

    Furthemore, the solo game developer was the ART Director of J. Walter Thompson Worldwide from January 2016 to March 2017. But, he has been a freelance artist since 2010, and as of today, he is entirely a self-employed artist.

    Nepalese Indie Game Dev Karma Project – What Do We Know So Far?

    The ambitious project is under the curtain; information is available only in fragments. Shakya has released multiple short videos on his YouTube channel, where he has shown the demos of the game. Meanwhile, a few international media have covered his work.

    The demo showed medieval Nepal and introduced an excellent Khukuri Mechanic. People refer to the khukuri as the God of War‘s Leviathan Axe.

    Similarly, another demo video showed a chopper convoy, breathtaking views, landscapes, cities, villages, and multiple features of the weapon, the Khukuri, such as the boomerang.

    Moreover, Ashim revealed the theme of the game in October 2023. The synopsis reads,

  • “A time portal has been opened. ‘ZADE,’ an autonomous force from a parallel timeline, initiates its attack on the Sacred Valley of ‘Vajra Kunda.’ Their mission is to absorb the Tantric energy of the Valley through its shrines. ‘Karma,’ an outlaw with questions of his own existence, abolished by the society for his mysterious past, sets up for a journey to protect the valley while discovering his own secrets.”

    Hey there! Did you find out about the Unreal Engine 5.4 Update?

    What is the Release Date of the Game?

    It has been over five years since the initiation of the game, from concept sketches. The 3D virtual realization was going on during the last quarter of 2023.

    Nepalese indie game dev Karma project’s leader has not mentioned the game’s exact release date. He might still be working on the game. He mentioned that the updates would be posted on his YouTube channel.
