The team travelled to Nepal with VICE to draw inspiration and create authentic Kyrati characters and environments native to the region. Far from the tourist trail, theyencounter people whose stories can help an outsider better experience the fabric of lifethere, both culturally and politically.
In the third video the development team meet Maoist fighters who struggled during the Nepalese Civil War. Inspired by their ideals, their grief and their stories they then head to the Pashupatinath temple, one of Hinduism oldest temples where they are faced with the mystical and the surreal.
Inside this sacred place, they talk to a sādhu, a religious ascetic whose life is dedicated to worship. Building from these experiences the team can now bring Kyrat to life.
