The wait is over: first Bollywood game EVER is coming to PC

8:00 PM on 12.29.2008 // Aerox

I've never seen a Bollywood movie. I'm not really a movie person in general, and what little I know about Bollywood movies is that there is a boatload of unnecessary singing and dancing extravaganzas. Not really my cup of tea.

However, it's extremely popular in India, but never before has there been a video game based on any of the movies -- until now. The recent film Gahjini is set to become the first Bollywood movie ever made into a PC game. According to the IMDB synopsis, it's about a millionaire with short term memory loss (pretty much exactly like Memento, down to the Polaroids and tattoos) who murders a bunch of people, and one of the characters is a "model cum activist". (I know that's not what it sounds like, but I couldn't stop laughing when I read that.)

An Indian game company called FXLabs is creating the game, which will be an action game based on the movie and feature voice acting (and hopefully dancing) from the movie's stars. Let's hope Gahjini makes it to Steam soon; the rest of the world not being able to play this game would be a travesty of the highest order.
