How Arabic Games Are Fighting The War On Error (Hooked Gamers)

Games are no exception, but now we see a backlash from the Arabic game development community. Their work seems to hold an important lesson for us all.

Interesting article, that raises some good points.

Unearthed does look like a rip off, but still it'd be good to see more games ( with more original concepts next time) from the east.

Oh, and kudos to Ubisoft for their mature take on arabic cultures.
