But there was never a third Cherai game. So what did Chayowo Games do after Regal Scepter? According to Big Fish, there were four more games credited to Chayowo (of which I have three).https://www.bigfishgames.com/download-games/developers/773/index.html
3. Zodiac Prophesies: The Serpent Bearer (bought December 2012)
4. Untold History: Descendent of the Sun (bought June 2013)
5. Legends of the East: The Cobra's Eye (bought February 2014)
6. Mystery Crusaders: Resurgence of the Templars (did not buy)
Unfortunately Zodiac Prophecies could have been made by any company. There was nothing distinctly "of India" about it. As suggested by its title, it depended more on zodiac symbols and that overused "air, earth, fire, water" foursome than anything else. Human figures were doll-like and backgrounds were cartoonish.
Untold History: Descendent of the Sun does seem to take place in the mountains of India, and has some nice locations. But you play as a single character, and I am sorry to say you are "The Chosen One." The game also confuses mythologies. You restore statues of Sati, Parvati, and Nandi, yet at the same time you're supposed to be some sort of descendent of Helios, a deity from Greek mythology. Also from Greek mythology is Poseidon, whose statue appears in the bonus game. And of course a modern version of astrology is thrown into the mix. Why couldn't they just stick with the mythology of India?
Legends of the East: The Cobra's Eye is supposed to take place in 1895 British India. Colors are mostly cyan and brown. You play as a woman trying to rescue her boyfriend and keep the powerful "Cobra's Eye" jewel out of evil hands. A missing person investigation set in "1895 British India" might have been interesting if it were more realistic (like a Sherlock Holmes mystery). Unfortunately a game that has evil "Draugs" taking people over whenever it's convenient for them doesn't really appeal to me. Aside from a bit of decor here and there, there wasn't much distinctly of India in this one. Like the previous "Untold History" game, the Map is an integral part of the game, showing you locations where there is something to do and providing the ability to teleport. Cobra's Eye would not start in XP, but played on the same computer when booted to Vista. I don't know if it was an XP issue or a driver issue.
Mystery Crusaders: Resurgence of the Templars
Unfortunately I didn't think this one was worth buying. Before the demo was over I felt like I'd played the game several times before. You are some woman, supposed to meet someone but he's shot first. You get no help from the innkeeper who says you're imagining things and should go to bed. I didn't last through the demo. The Credits don't even mention Chayowo Games -- instead listing Ruby Seven Studios, which seems to be an online game company selling Casino games. Go to http://chayowogames.com/
and it forwards you to https://www.rubyseven.com
So maybe Ruby Seven is renamed Chayowo or maybe they bought Chayowo or who knows what happened? Unfortunately it appears the Chayowo Games that made the Cherai games is no more.
I feel like Chayowo Games got bad advice from somewhere, telling them they had to make games like nearly every other company makes. They gave up what made their company unique and now there's nothing left of them.
