Just when you thought that Uncharted couldn’t get any better, along comes Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta. This game is set to not only take on similar experiences as Uncharted, but it’s incredibly identical to Uncharted, but with some slight downgrades, unnoticeable to the naked eye.
Unearthed Trail of Ibn Battuta is a third person action adventure video game set in modern day Middle East that is presented in a TV-Style episodic format and it will be available in both Arabic and English. The game will be available on major platforms including PC, Mac OSX, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android Devices and Playstation 3.
Story: Arab fortune hunter Faris Jawad and his archeologist sister Dania receive a call to visit Morocco they embark on an exotic adventure throughout the Middle East on the trail of the famous Muslim explorer Ibn Battuta (1304-1369 A.D.). The trail won’t be clear however as Faris will have to overcome an unholy alliance of a militia army leader, a weapons dealer and a wealthy antiquities smuggler who are after the same goal.

Here is what Emad Fahad Aldoghaither, the president of Semanoor International had to say:
“We are thrilled to be introducing Saudi Arabia’s first multiplatform video game to the world, we are determined to deliver a next-generation experience that will do justice to the amazing story of Ibn Battuta” Said Emad Fahad Aldoghaither, the president of Semanoor International.
The game is utilizing the Unity platform as its core technology solution and is going to be among the first Unity-based titles to be launched on the PlayStation 3 platform.
“We are story-tellers at heart and we feel that we have a lot of great stories that are based on actual Middle Eastern history in this region and we strive to tell them using the very best in modern technologies, a key component to enable that is the Unity Game Engine and the flexibility it offers to allows us to iterate quickly and be constantly productive” said Ahmad Jadallah, the Director of Development at Semaphore and the game’s Writer and Director.
“We are incredibly excited to see that commercial PlayStation 3 content is being created through the Unity platform from new sources that we don’t normally connect to high-end game development” said Steffen Toksvig, VP on Engineering of Unity Technologies.
He obviously knows that this game will have a chance to sell for one reason — Uncharted.
