I'm still looking for a publisher to handle my game... Unmapped : Dirk's Treasure. Hopefully I'll hear something soon because the sequel, Amongst Hooligans, is almost finished.

I have an idea for your third game. Call it Unmapped 3: Dirk's Deceiving! You could have deserts and boats and everything!

I want to play it, but don't want to support such a blatant rip off. I'll rent it through Gamefly.

Kill it with fire.

This game looks s**t.

Mass effect, meet alpha protocol.
Gears of war, meet Quantum Theory.
God of war, meet Dantes inferno.
uncharted, meet unearthed.

Funny thing is they didn't disguise the name like all the other game clones lol.

Ok admittedly the gamee doesn't look that good. But its the first Saudi Arabian developed game for PS3 so its good to see them taking an interest in the gaming industry, heres hoping after this game that we get more arabian developers making original games for console/PC

Sorry, I had to disagree due to your wording "original" :)

Aha, sure this game might not be original, but at least they're doing they're own story and stuff. Thats a start. But hopefully this game will encourage other devs to start making they're own games that are original.

why are people senselessly hating on this game? everyone rips-off other peoples work. the point is, they add their own view, style, story, to it. hell developers rip-off their own work by doing spin-offs etc.. this is a real person, a real explorer, and Saudi Arabia is rich in history. they like native Americans, Asians are good at telling stories through art, writing, etc.. im almost confident they will tell a compelling story. and if im wrong, oh well, at least i didnt judge it, before i played it.

Im kinda excited for this game, I know the story of Ibn Battuta is very interresting so I want to see how it will turn out on a game.. dont listen to the haters, they will always hate, they even hate on Unchated wich is better than any game on the market in any way :D

I'm hating on this game because it is screaming "I'M S**T" at point blank range into my face. Go watch some gameplay and see if you are still so optimistic.
HeavenlySnipes  +   1408d ago
A lot of people are hating
because of the blatent rip off, but I agree with you, the game looked TERRIBLE in play.
