Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta

Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta is being developed by a Saudi game developing company called Semaphore. It follows treasure hunter Faris Jawad through his adventures in the Middle East on the trail of a famous Muslim explorer Ibn Battuta. On his adventure he must deal with “unholy alliance of a militia army leader, a weapons dealer and a wealthy antiquities smuggler who are after the same goal” Their site states the game is coming soon to PSN, XBLA, WiiWare, the iPhone, the iPad, Android devices, Mac, PC and Facebook.

Right off the bat, the similarities between this game and Uncharted are uncanny. Even though it’s nice to see an Arab game developer releasing a game, I wish it wasn’t done like this. The game needs polish, the environments look nice, but the character animations, voice overs and the weapons need serious work.
