As the world moves to a global economy, in which each nation is interdependent on the others, countries and cultures are looking for a way to express -- and preserve -- their individuality.
Videogames are the new medium for that, as India releases its first home-grown game. It's based on the 2005 film Ghanjini and is just debuting on PCs worldwide.
The title is also being released in 3D, making it even more of an event for gamers.
"There are no Indian games so we wanted to bring Indian games to the audiences here and we built India's first 3D game," Sashi Reddy told kotaku.com. Reddy is the head of FX Labs, which created the game.
The movie Ghanjini is about a businessman who experiences short-term memory loss and uses notes, tattoos, and photographs to find his girlfriend's killers.
