POSTER OF VIKRAM VETAL T.V SERIES(NOT AN GAME BOX ART)
HARRY POTTER WATCH OUT! VIKRAM VETAL IS COMING
Somehow I stumbled onto this game Vikram Vetal. In the game, you appear to control a magician in a 2D platforming adventure. There also appears to be a ghostly sidekick that follows you around and some interesting puzzles and lighting effects. The game looks interesting enough, but my interest was piqued even more by the complete lack of information about this game or the game developer. After some searching, I did manage to find the game’s developer Vril Interactive and their official website, but the site is completely flash based and looks like it is out of 1995. The only information that I got from the site is that the game’s subtitle is Quest for the Serpent Stone not to be confused with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s stone. I was able to find out that the game is described as a coming to the Xbox, Playstation, and PC consoles.
Actually it's an old indian story which features vikram and vetal when i was small i read comics and later on it was made into an tv series.
here is some more info about the characters.
The legendary King Vikram, identified as Vikramāditya (c. 1st century BC), promises a vamachari (a tantric sorcerer) that he will capture a vetala (or Baital), a celestial spirit who hangs from a tree and inhabits and animates dead bodies.
King Vikram faces many difficulties in bringing the vetala to the tantric. Each time Vikram tries to capture the vetala, it tells a story that ends with a riddle. If Vikram cannot answer the question correctly, the vampire consents to remain in captivity. If the king answers the question correctly, the vampire would escape and return to his tree. In some variations, the king is required to speak if he knows the answer, else his head will burst. In other versions, the king is unable to hold his tongue if he knows the answer, due to his ego. Regardless of the reason, he knows the answer to every question; therefore the cycle of catching and releasing the vampire continues twenty-four times.
On the twenty-fifth attempt, the vetala tells the story of a father and a son in the after-math of a devastating war. They find the queen and the princess alive in the chaos, and decide to take them home. In due time, the son marries the queen and the father marries the princess. Eventually, the son and the queen have a son, and the father and the princess have a daughter. The vetala asks what the relation between the two newborn children is. The question stumps Vikram. Satisfied, the vetala allows himself to be taken to the tantric.
The vetala reveals the tantric's plan to sacrifice Vikram, beheading him as he bowed in front of the goddess. The tantric could then gain control over the vetala. The vetala suggests that the king asks the tantric how to perform his obeisance, then take advantage of that moment to behead the sorcerer himself. Vikramāditya does exactly as told by vetala and he is blessed by Lord Indra. The vetala offers the king a boon, whereupon Vikram requests that the tantric's life be restored and that the vetala would come to the king's aid when needed.
Finally an game on Indian Characters.
