Yesterday all the world knew about the game Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta. This game has a lot of similarities with Uncharted for PS3. It seems there is also a multiplay for this game.
Wow, WTF they actually called it "Unearthed"
I love that a lot of people call it uncharted clone so lets continue calling it that.
I say cut them some slack. Obviously a no-named developer group heavily influenced from Uncharted. But they are so amateur, so to laugh at their technical limits doesn't mean much. Sure, it may suck like hell, but it could also have some interesting things to it. It may even be one of those "so bad it's good" games. At least it's not "Generic FPS shooter #23193" I think I'd try out this game before another generic FPS game. At least it sounds to have a much more interesting story
They even copied the logo to a certain extent. Copying may get you noticed, but it can also result in you gaining no respect. It's not that I'm making fun of them or whatever I just want it to be a message to the developers or any developer for that matter that being original is the best policy. I'm pretty sure those devs wouldn't want to be known as the guys that made the "uncharted clone." Especially since the game is not looking good so far. So at this rate they'll be known as the guys that made a failed attempt at an uncharted game. As for generic FPSs I blame Call of Duty fans. Any other FPS game that don't play like Call of Duty they complain and the developers listen to them resulting in a bad sequel that neither the Call of Duty fans or the original fans like. I wouldn't pick up this game or a generic FPS at all as I see them both equally as bad. I'm tired of the lack of originality in games.
if you make a clone, at least call it something different. Its like the devs of Quantum Theory calling it Cogs of Battle lol.
@thugbob Of course I wouldn't buy this, but people are being so hard on this game. I guess that comes with the territory for copying the game but people are taking it too personally. Also, If you want to criticize originality look at the big devs that actually wield the power to do something new but don't. IMO originality is a problem that lies with them, not small time devs that have neither the funding or likely experience the leaders in the industry do.
@ Alpha I kinda see your point... I don't know anything about this game, but if it was a student project, I would give them props for making something of worth with little to do it with. But if this is a game that someone is selling then they can sit on it for ripping off a great game and trying to sell it off like a cheap ass Chinese remake.
Well at least the got the health levels right. lol
uhm WTF just happened? did the just WALK THROUGH each other?? o__O
Guys its made in unity...
taht engine is like $300 for the Pro version so dont expect it to be as good as a multi million dollar game Lol
LMAO...I guess I've never played a "so bad it's good" game.
A lot of people aren't calling it a "clone". It's just this Kingsora bitch.
@Alpha "At least it's not "Generic FPS shooter #23193" " Well, you do know how games become generic, don't you?
This looks and has the same cheap sound effects of an early PS1 game.
I can't wait for their next title, "Super Blario Universe"
LMFAO especially when they walked right through eachother xD
Give these guys a break :( They're an indie developer and as others have said this is probably their first game. They don't have the triple A backing of a huge corporation like sony with money up the wazoo. @princeofthabay The only similarities to uncharted is its name, and how the characters are perceived from the single artwork released. It looks like a PS2 game, and yet people are trying to draw comparisons with Uncharted. It's stupid, as there are hundreds of games out there with likeness to uncharted - shooter or plat-former. I don't get the un-needed hate. It's not like its a 'threat' to uncharted as some people are finding in the some of the fanboy comments below.
What are you talking about? Being an indie developer is your chance to do something new and fresh,not do a really bad copy and paste. @breakneckspeed the name,the characters,the artstyle, and the premise.Its a bad reskin,you have to be blind not to see it. There indie dev all over the world that make names for themselves like the devs of limbo, vvvv or supermeatboy. Being indie is no excuse.
Being Indie does not mean you have to do something new.. Just means they can create what they want and if they want to create a game like this dont say "wtf u doing ur indie create someing else" cuz maybe they dont want to.
Every 3rd Party developer have the chance to do something new lol..
DOnt mean you got to :)
and yeh Similarities rely in its setting name and the fact its 3rd Person...
This game is equivalent to those cheap movies I see on netflix that are ripping off Hollywood blockbusters. Transmorphers is the best example lol.
Someone mail the dev team and tell them to scrap this hardcore mockup...it would be doing them a favor.. This is ridiculous.
Unearthed= Uncharted Just change "chart" to "earth" or vice versa! Lol?
i dont get it... *sarcasm*
Are you serious..This will be fun... NOT! Thank god we don't have smell O vision! perhaps to enjoy the pungent foul Curry smells that this game has behind it =O ).The swet and the (cough ripp off) original talent & concept of the Arabic community of gamers and anti-deoderant gamers. Surley would be fun to play this game with a veil over my face and camel nuts in my mouth i meant pistachio nutts =), and of course i can't wait to see what Oil money can do for a game that obviously deserves so much attention from a so so talented region of game designers and who with out oil finances could easily do any game they would want and be original as well. PASS!!!! Should be a great Bluray to shove upa camels arse like that Prince of Persia movie lmao...NO WAY!
They would make way more if they ripped of a franchise that everyone flocks to like COD, plus if they did that they would have a chance of making a comparable game.
Everybody rips off of COD though.They did something more original, ironically enough, by ripping off Uncharted instead.
COD sucks ball though, so people that rip it off are doing us a favor. Uncharted can't be topped.
unearthed is far from uncharted
you do realize that every single letter in UNCHARTED is re-arranged to make UNEARTHED with the exception of the letter C
Better than disneyland adventures
the difference between this and uncharted is uncharted 2 1. uncharted 2 9.6 meta 2. highest rated hd console game of all time. 3. most awards of ALL TIME. 4. the few, the proud, the uncharted . unearthed 1.the imitators, the unworthy, the knockoffs 2.in my opinion looks 'ok' but not near uncharteds level.
GTA4 has the highest review scores that proves you cant go be review scores. ( even though uncharted actually deserved the high scores it got.)
i think uncharted 2 is wayyy better than anything gta4 can throw at it!
1. I have no idea why your trying to prove to everyone that uncharted 2 is a better game when not only is that obvious its also unfair on the much smaller budget and team of the people making this game. 2. Uncharted 2 isnt the highest rated game ever Half-Life 2 BioShock The Orange Box Mass Effect 2 Half-Life Resident Evil 4 All have the same score and there are games higher rated. 3. I also find it extreamly worrying that you have some sort of crazed loyalty to the game.
Are you serious *firemassacre? The difference is clear in the budget of both games. You don't seem to appreciate how low budget this is. Uncharted had the backing of a multi-million dollar corporation - sony. Not to personally attack you, but you're an idiot for even comparing the two. The article is even dumber.
looks ok? lol it looks like a massive fail to me
Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.
If I "imitated" something this hard in English class I would have failed for plagiarism.
I'll get them d*mn mosquitoes! (what he must be shooting at lol) Edit _____ Calling this game a clone? I could see that if they mean like on Family Guy when Stewie makes b**ch Stewie. Physically deformed and not too bright.
Give them a break! These guys are probably an indie dev making their first game. =(
Hats down for this is the only sensitive comment i ever read on this site.
So what if their indie. If you have a limited budget, make a game that fits your budget. You make it sound as if indie and first timer are synonymous with crap and not knowing how to work a budget.
this fits their budget. Problem?
This is the closest gamers (without a PS3) will get to experiencing the brilliance that is Uncharted lol
not even tomb raider to say the least xP
Graphically seems closer to Gears. /s
How very clever did you come up with that all on your own? Your mummy must be very proud
Do you know what a /s tag mean asswipe? Need YOUR mommy to explain it too you? She can after I'm done with her ok?
I'm pretty sure his mommy isn't a 5 year old. So I don't see how a Pedobear fan would be interested!
How is this an Uncharted clone? It looks nothing like Uncharted.
Nothing? Nothing at all? You mean to tell me that there is not ONE thing that reminds you of UNchartED? Not even the title of the game "UNearthED"? I dislike when people just lie like when people say Lebron James sucks at basketball.
Third-person action-adventure game set in tombs. It's more Tomb Raider than anything. Sure, the title has the "un-" prefix, it features a male protagonist (like 99% of games), and it has shooting, but other than that, no, it really doesn't look a whole lot like Uncharted. If it takes this little for you to denounce something as a clone, then would that make Uncharted a clone of Tomb Raider?
Uncharted has things in common with Tomb Raider, absolutely. But it doesn't just flat out copy everything about Tomb Raider, right down to the font. Don't defend this, it looks like shit and the fact that it's apparently being released on the PSN and XBLA, should tell you it deserves to be critiqued the same as other downloadable titles on that service.
The animations are disgusting. I can understand small budget ext., but come on.
not even a clone. just because it has the same theme as Uncharted it doesn mean it is a clone.. dumbass -_____-
if it is low budget they might try something creative. for example why couldn't they make a less ambitious game like WOrld of Goo or Braid. They were low budget but amazing.
Goldeneye on the N64 popped right in my head seeing this. Even the breathing when you're low on health sounds just like it.
i bet the online is funner than uncharted, people covering and camping the whole time
As opposed to running out into the middle of the field using ballistic knife? Tactical gameplay is not for everyone I guess.
what is this abomination ?LMAO.
It reminds me of Tomb Raider and Uncharted actually, so I guess like "Uncharted Tomb?"
This IS NOT a clone!... Saying its a clone inferrs it looks exactly like 'Uncharted'... and in no way is that the case! :/ I will not put myself through the tortue of watching the horrific animations, cliping and floating that was going on in this 'Game' ever again!!
This is what "Uncharted' would look like on the 360 lol.. Sorry.. couldn't resist! :/
LMAO!! Give these guys a break? They're an indie dev? LOL!! I've seen better games and animations from mod teams with zero budget.
I am not defending these guys, but we should be going a bit easy on them, or how we forgotten how far Naughty Dog has come, cause I haven't and even they resorted to blatant rip-offs in order to stay afloat: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Now, naughty dog is one of my favorite developers, so i am not bashing them, but who's to say these people wont end up making a series later on that matches or surpasses what Uncharted has achieved?
Looks like a PS2 game imo.
wow u r stupid this gameplay from unearthed on facebook not ps3 http://apps.facebook.com/un... console game is under development
