Awakened Dogs

First Tamil Open World Video Game

Awakened Dogs is a project based on Madurai, Tamilnadu, India. It's a open world action video game based on Tamil culture and community.

What is it about ?

Defining Tamil culture and including gangster based storyline in the video game. Tamil culture is a unique factor around the world and as a person who was grown in a Tamil local community and flew aboard, I can see how people might relate to the culture once the game is releases.

Why I started this

journey ?

It was a long process. I started playing around PC when I was a 10-year-old kid and eventually played GTA Vice City which was a turning point in my life. That's where I was inspired to make a game based on my city Madurai. Started to use Flash, 3D rad and other tools in the early 2010s. 

- 2010 -> 2012 • Learned flash with my mate Sathya

-2012 -> 2015 • Learned Maya and SketchUp. Used that skill to build a similar city in the 3D rad game engine

-2016 -> 2018 • Experienced with Unity 3d and failed multiple times

- 2018 -> 2020 •Tryed to change the topic and make a multiplayer game instead of an open world (Failed)

- 2021 -> Ongoing • Understood the process and have been working on developing the assets for the game
