Philippine indie game studio Ranida Games has announced the pre-registration launch of SINAG on Google Play. This offering wants to combine the allure of Philippine mythology with deep and engaging gameplay mechanics, delivering a fresh take on the beloved fighting game genre. SINAG intends to appeal to casual gamers and dedicated fans of fighting games like Tekken, Streetfighter, or Shadow Fight 2 with depth and complexity.
Experience SINAG the Philippine Take On Fighting Games like Tekken
The developers want to pay homage to the beauty and diversity of the Philippines. Still, SINAG is not Ranida’s first fighting game to weave elements from Philippine culture into its core gameplay. In 2019, they successfully released BAYANI on Steam.
A Unique Blend of Philippine Mythology and Tekken Gameplay
As part of The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) inaugural Computer Games Grants Program, SINAG incorporates content derived from the CCP Encyclopedia of Philippine Art. This integration reflects the studio’s commitment to preserving the country’s rich cultural legacy, including its folktales, myths, and legends, adding more depth to the Tekken-style fighting game concept.
Meet the Diverse Character Roster of SINAG
Upon its official launch, SINAG will feature eight playable characters, eight background stages, and a four-button system with directional input. Dispensing with swipe mechanics and cooldown-dependent moves, SINAG plans to offer a combo-heavy gameplay experience, catering to fans who seek skilful combat.
The developer ensures compatibility with touch and controllers, allowing players to choose their preferred style of play.
The character roster includes iconic figures such as Juan, symbolising the “Filipino everyman”; Anna Luna, inspired by the mythical creature White Lady; Daragi, based on the Filipino folklore creature Tikbalang; Amon, influenced by the Filipino folklore creature Kapre; Bathala, representing the ancient mythological supreme being; Bugan, a male warrior inspired by the Igorot ethnic group; Tala, a female warrior with roots in the Igorot ethnic group; and lastly, Mara’t Clara, drawing inspiration from the Philippine mythical creature Manananggal.
