Published by AbracaDabra Software Solutions Pvt. Ltd, Tanhaji - The Maratha Warrior is the first 3D RPG war game celebrating an Indian hero. With 12 levels of playtime, the game offers a highly action-packed experience to gamers with the immersive audio of Dolby Atmos. When the gamers will play Tanhaji in Dolby Atmos, it will truly transport them to the era of The Great Shivaji Maharaj of the 17th century [a celebrated warrior in India].
During the gameplay, the gamer will don the avatar of Tanhaji and will be assigned a mission from the great Shivaji Maharaj to win back the Fort of Kondhana for the sake of Swarajya [the motherland]. The game has been designed in a way that it handles excessive virtual violence with utmost finesse. It offers a balanced gameplay without compromising the entertainment quotient. Gamers will get the experience of being in the center of the action like a hero in a movie that they are watching and controlling. The game also instils a great sense of patriotism, sacrifice, and responsibility among the gamers.
There are many aspects to this game. It is an action game that makes the battle sequences the primary feature but while designing the narrative of the game, we wanted to give equal importance to the emotional appeal. Tanhaji’s patriotism is the driving force for the entire narrative which is also showcased in a scene constructed to bring out the emotions of Chhatrapati Shivaji.
The game has a high emotional quotient that comes out beautifully through the visuals, but no good visuals are complete without great audio. In Tanhaji, audio plays an equal and perhaps a more important role to bring out the nuances intricately when it comes to emotions and actions. The team has worked hard on the lyrics, and songs to ensure a great musical outcome and got awarded for the Best Gaming Score of the year 2023 by Animation Express. This would not have been possible without the use of Dolby Atmos technology.
With Dolby Atmos, you’ll experience a deeper level of connection and engagement with the game. You’ll feel the multidimensional soundscape all around you with more clarity and sharper details that will put you in the middle of the action. The gamers will feel like they are transported to the 17th century and are traveling through the jungles or the fort. While horse riding through the cascades and rivers, and during the fight sequences, the gamers will live every moment lifelike with the sound of Dolby Atmos. Dolby Atmos also offers pinpoint accuracy that defines location and direction for a more realistic and thrilling experience. Hear more, feel more, and experience Tanhaji with the rich audio of Dolby Atmos. It’s a sound-on experience you won’t want to miss.
Tanhaji is the first RPG game on mobile offering a world-class audio experience in Dolby Atmos. The idea behind the integration of Dolby Atmos was to provide gamers with a movie-like experience on every device that they play the game on. Building the game in Dolby Atmos was a smooth experience for us with utmost support from team Dolby. The game has been sound engineered with very minute details to ensure perfection at all levels. We have used tools offered by Dolby Atmos to provide distance, dimension, and orientation to the sound source. These tools have offered us great ease and flexibility to implement complex sound algorithms for realistic effects which is sure to leave a lasting impact on the gamer’s visual and auditory senses. Many OEMS has already realized the importance of audio and offering Dolby Atmos equipped Smartphones and headsets.
In addition to that, many OEMs have also started to realise the importance of audio and are now offering smartphones and headsets equipped with Dolby Atmos. Gamers today rely heavily on sounds as part of the gameplay experience. The ability to pick sounds is very important. Whether they are subtle sounds or major booms or bangs within the game. For gamers, it could be a matter of life or death in the virtual world. The sounds that are produced within the game do pull the game through and this is where Dolby Atmos-enabled smartphones shine because they can reproduce crystal clear sounds allowing players to react and experience the game in a way that has never been done before.
We, the team at AbracaDabra are very grateful to have got the opportunity to provide a world-class gaming experience through Tanhaji to the GenZ gamers of today. Working with the team at Dolby and enabling an immersive gaming experience has been a delight. The Dolby team supported us at every stage with all the necessary aspects of Dolby Atmos integration and thereby improving the overall gaming experience with exceptional sound design and sound engineering techniques.
