About this project
Other Payment Method
Boma Naraka Sura is a game adapted from an infamous legend recorded in ancient Southeast Asian scriptures about a being called Bomasura. In many versions of traditional storytelling, Boma is depicted as a vicious villain.
The developer team, however, has a different idea. Boma’s antagonistic traits are actually deeply rooted in a hidden dark past. Boma is an unfortunate victim of the circumstances, and the developer thinks his struggles deserve a higher appreciation. However, in order to avoid complications, the untold story of Boma will be revealed from a different perspective. And they contacted me! Yes, they want me to be involved in this project.
This game focuses on me, a girl called Sveta, who, due to an unexpected turn of events, becomes an important part of Boma’s tale. Boma and I both have unfinished matters in the past. The story will unfold each time my memory fragments are collected.
Boma Naraka Sura was inspired by the 2D animation and RPG elements of the globally-acknowledged Castlevania series. The developer adds interesting mechanics and features to enrich the gaming experience. Similar to other action platforms, I will go through levels, defeating monsters as well as bosses. I will also be able to upgrade my weapon and skill levels as the journey to collect my memory fragments. I will explore deep within levels, find secret treasures and passages, and discover unique special abilities along the way!
I wield a holy spear in combat. I can learn many powerful combat skills as you help me complete challenges issued by magnificent mythical beasts or successfully collects their amulet fragments. Throughout the game, you will be able to upgrade my weapon or even craft new ones by infusing the power of mythical materials to add special attributes.
Venture through many different realms—each consisting of challenging levels with countless of hidden treasures, secret rooms, and fearsome monsters. Help me defeat the ruling boss of each realm and move forward to the next one. Every single one of the adversaries is different and unique, possessing interesting characteristics reflecting the nature of their distinctive, breathtaking realms.
The developer told me that they have made sure to enrich the game with fun features to make the adventure a remarkably exciting one. Here are some of them:
• Unlock new recipes to craft and upgrade my weapons, combos, and skill sets in order to defeat enemies more effectively.
• Collect mythical materials by defeating bosses and mini bosses, then craft and upgrade legendary weapons and armors.
If that wasn’t enough, check out the one of a kind feature of this game have. You can recruit mythical beasts as partners to help me on my adventure. The Fierce Dawon, the Noble Nandi, the Grand Airavata, and many other extraordinary creatures will fight for you.
• Unlock special abilities by completing challenges from mythical beast or by collecting their amulet fragments.
• Recruit all mythical beasts and acquire their unique armors and abilities.
• Experience the depth of Southeast Asian culture by discovering iconic and rare mythological characters, and uncovering their individual background stories.
Along the quest to reclaim my lost memories, Boma’s power will grow even stronger. Boma consumes the souls of eradicated monsters to fuel his strength, and as it grows, so will mine. I will be able to use stronger equipment, wield spears of groundbreaking power and armors of impenetrable defense.
As you and I fight our way through Lokas, we will encounter many useful items. These items can not only be used to forge better weapons and armors for me, they can also be cooked into delicious food that replenish my strength when the battles and trials become too much.
Aside from Boma, I will meet other fantastical mythical beasts—such as Dawon and Airavata—who will accompany me on my journey to reclaim my lost memories. Souls ingested from monsters can also be used to enhance the power of each individual mythical beast. I will also gain unique abilities from each mythical beast; double jump and dash are just naming a few—there are many other helpful technical abilities to discover. These abilities will give you, dear players, the opportunity to explore deeper into levels to find secret passages and treasures.
Boss Battle Theme
This is a story about a war between great heroes thousands of years ago. It was not simply a fight between good and evil; it was also a war between desires, consequences, and duties.
This is a story about me, Sveta, a girl who wakes up in a strange world called Naraka Loka. Naraka Loka resides at the bottom of six realms. People know it as hell, the place where wicked souls dwell. I don't remember anything about my life or why I am stranded in the pits of hell.
In order to understand what truly is going on, I must embark on a journey to recollect fragments of my memory that are scattered across six realms. When I encounter Boma, he grants me the strength I need to slay the dark creatures intending to imprison me forever in Naraka Loka.
This journey will unfold my story and reveal how it intertwines with the powerful guardians of each loka.

Risks and challenges
The concept of Boma Naraka Sura won the 1st place in a competition held by Indonesian Ministry in 2012. The initial development of Boma Naraka Sura was unsuccessful due to the unfortunate fact that one of our partners backed out from the project. However, the developer team believes that the concept is a strong one, and has kept it in their hearts. Boma Naraka Sura has been recreated over the last six months, bringing with it ingenious new contents and countless of extraordinarily exciting features.
