Retracing the steps of Ibn Battuta

Gulf News- Dubai: The budding digital media production industry in the Middle East is taking another important step towards creating its own internet, film and gaming content.

What's being billed as one of the first multi-platform adventure-action video games to be created exclusively within the Middle East is under full production and nearing completion, says a Saudi Arabian games developer exhibiting at Dubai Game Expo 2011.

The expo opened yesterday and runs until tomorrow with the latter two days showcasing 144 gaming companies at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The new homegrown video game, Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta, is the brainchild of Semaphore, the gaming and multimedia division of Semanoor International, an established Saudi Arabian e-learning firm for the last 20 years.

Wow not only did they take the gameplay from Uncharted but also the title.

Btw I wonder if the special edition will be packed with a bomb. Haha
