God of War: Chains of Olympus Dedicated to Prof. V. K. Samaranayake

Today I finished the PSP (Play Station Portable) game God of War: Chains of Olympus after about 8+ hours of total playing, I guess. One of the best games that I've ever played.

When I finish the game and it started to displaying game credits, I was really happy to see a Sri Lankan name on top of everything. It was Ru Weerasuriya, the game director of this amazing game. And at the end of credits, I saw something more interesting that is "God of War: Chains of Olympus" is dedicated to late. Prof. V. K. Samaranayake, Father of Information Technology in Sri Lanka. I did bit googling on this and found out that Ru Weerasuriya was a student of Prof. V. K. Samaranayake.

It is good to see Sri Lankans doing good in computer gaming industry. Mind you God of War: Chains of Olympus won several awards last year. If I recall correctly, It won the award for the best game for portable gaming consoles.


  1. Wow. This is very interesting and inspiring. And in fact it made me google the name Ru Weerasooriya. Among many references to him in famous sites like 1UP, kotaku, IGN, GameSpot I found this youtube video.

  2. i orderd the game off from eay and it came today morning. Played it for about 6 and 1/2 hours and it was over just a few minutes ago. I was astonished when i saw the credits.sri lankan name on top of the list.this is so great man. God of war chains of olympus is the greatest psp title ever. And im so proud that a sri lankan directed it.
