What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This is a novel genre that we are experimenting with, and we would love to get early feedback from our audience as to which direction we should grow in, and what improvements would make this experience more enjoyable for them.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Around four to five months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We are still in the middle of producing our solo PvE content, and additional art/ cinematic work for the same. We would also like to add many more social features like weekly tournaments and trading systems.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core PvP gameplay is completely functional and has been tested over the last few months with a small group of alpha testers. The onboarding campaign is also ready, though we expect improving on this some more through early access. Much of the look and feel is also polished, but the art and visual effects for several units and spells is still being developed.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game will remain free to play. There are no in-app purchases during Early Access. You can only play your way to glory.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are continuously collecting feedback, both qualitative and quantitative, and strongly believe in listening to our players about what the game should be like. Our Discord channel is open for community discussions, and we are even open to ideas for new stories, cards and characters at this stage!”

About This Game

Welcome to the vibrant world of "Kurukshetra: Ascension" a captivating strategy card game inspired by the Mahabharata and Ramayana, developed by Studio Sirah. Immerse yourself in intense battles and lore by donning the avatars of legendary heroes of the past, now reborn in Kalyug, the Age of Darkness.


Use powerful melee, ranged units, and a litany of spells, weapons, and effects to unleash chaos on the battlefield. With an ever-expanding roster of heroes wielding unique abilities and over two hundred playable cards, varied playstyles and creative deck building is encouraged. Make or break the meta as uniquely themed seasons bring brand new cards and balance updates every two months.


Explore a deeply rooted universe in our PVE story campaign with unique factions, creatures, and forces that transcend time and borders. Relive epic events from aeons ago, while tactically utilizing your cards to outwit Demons, Warriors and Cosmic Beasts. Climb the mythical Mount Meru, explore realms and make choices that weave through and influence a rich tapestry of Indian mythology, all with beautifully illustrated cards depicting these iconic characters and powerful abilities.


Test your competitive mettle and climb the leaderboard by pitching yourself in battle against other warriors. Master Melee and Ranged Rows. Seize Free Kills opportunities to maximise your presence on the battlefield. Kurukshetra: Ascension's PvP also draws inspiration from the wars of old, where nightfall provides players with the unique opportunity to strategize under the cover of darkness and change the rhythm of turn-based combat.

Our unique mechanic has both players engage simultaneously after a set number of rounds. So, you and your opponent must not only counter each other's moves but also exploit the advantage of newly introduced cards specifically designed for the "night" phase. The cards add buffs to fortify strategies, bring new units to the board and amplify the fun!


We're an indie Indian studio with big ambitions. We want to bring Indian content to games and to a global audience in rich, unique ways. Kurukshetra: Ascension is the beginning of that journey. While the game is still in Early Access, we have already released multiple updates with new realms as chapters to the primary Ascension campaign. We have also released two seasonal content updates - Tribes Of Kishkindha and Echoes of the Beast, with more content on the way. We would love your feedback on the current version as we work to make it even better!
