Ranida Games

BAYANI is a 1-on-1 indie fighting video game that draws heavily from historical figures and landmarks from the Philippines as inspiration. However, the game’s characters, levels, and storyline don’t depict historical events but is more trivial in nature. The game world is set on an alternate timeline but has many parallels, references, and callbacks to historical figures and events.

The word BAYANI is the Filipino word for Heroes. However, it carries a deeper context wherein only those who are willing to suffer and sacrifice themselves for the good of the country are worthy to be called as such. Therefore, the game is a fusion of tradition, culture, and digital art. It aims to help the younger generation of Filipinos to appreciate their country’s history and heritage by associating it to a more modern and interactive medium.
