For those who are interested in video games, This might be a pretty old one, but is one of the only one that involved Sikhs. This is Empire: Total War, a turn-based strategy and real-time tactics PC game developed by The Creative Assembly and published by SEGA. The fifth game in the Total War series, it was released in 2009. It focuses in the early modern period (1700-1800). Even though the game mainly focuses European history, its map covers most of Asia (Middle East&India), North America and Africa. The main factions on the Indian subcontinent are the Mughals and Marathas. However, as time passes new factions present themselves (Afghanistan, Punjab-Sikh Empire, Britain and France). Sikh units can be recruited by both, as mercenaries. Sikh Musketeers are mainly available to the Marathas, maybe because they both fought Mughals. They are the best soldiers of India in terms of morale and abilities. There are two Sikh units in the basic game: Sikh Musketeers and Sikh Warriors. There are many mods that also add: Sikh Heavy Cavalry, Sikh Sharpshooters and many other units. I suggest this to many teenagers and parents, because it gives you the chance to relive history. It costs just 20$ or Euros or even cheaper during sales at Steam-http://store.steampowered.com/app/10500/, or just 2$ at Amazon-https://www.amazon.com/Empire-Total-War-PC/dp/B0018YXM3Y/ref=sr_1_1?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1483807122&sr=1-1&keywords=empire%2Btotal%2Bwar&th=1 Below are some screenshots: The Sikh Musketeers The Generals Elephant Bodyguard The Sikh Warriors All Punjabi Units Sikh Musketeers assaulting Mughal Artillery and Islamic Swordsmen I had bad FPS in this screenshot All Army in Formation Sikh Army ready to retake Lahore (Campaign Map) This is video of a American guy playing a Multiplayer Battle using Sikh troops.
