Bardo is a survival action puzzle with a Tibetan Buddhism theme. Players have to find safe spots, avoid tricky demons and catch helpful items to advance as far as possible in their "re-birth" journey. Between journeys, they can explore the "refuge tree" to improve their skills with the help of buddhas, lamas, bodhisattvas and protectors.
Ludopia is an independent video game studio founded by Saúl González and Robert Valerio in May 2014. Their first project (Quiro) is a serious game for surgery students that has earned several awards and acknowledgments. Ludopia has since offered gamedev and gamification services for third parties and is now preparing for their first entertainment game releases: Bardo & Feng Shui.Why tibetan buddhism?
The journey of our minds since the moment we die until we are re-born is called Bardo. We selected tibetan buddhism as the theme for Bardo because is an extremely rich culture and has almost never been featured in a video game. The fact that Robert is a practitioner himself also had a little to do with this decision!Recent
Bardo is a mobile videogame (Android/iOS) built on the Unity game engine, with the potential to expand to other platforms.
- Original "mirror puzzle" gameplay mechanic.
- Fast-paced puzzle action requiring you to think on your feet.

- Dazzling visuals based on buddhist imagery.
- Unique theme inspired on the Bardo Thodol, the "Tibetan Book of the Dead".
There are far more images available for Ludopia, but these are the ones we felt would be most useful to you. If you have specific requests, please do contact us!
