What the FUCK is going on with this game?

I think I'd rather import the game with the title of just Afrika rather than "National Geographic: Africa" ...I don't know why, but that just sounds so awful to me, like a horrible budget game.

Now the game sounds like a cash-in game instead of an original idea.

Yep, I recconmend now avoiding it so lessons are taught. Then again the masses will probably buy it....idiots.

Actually, the game was already a side work with Nat. Geo. You could research for info from their site in the game, as photos, videos, information, etc. And you are a photographer for the National Geographic in the game as well.
I dont expect the game to even reach 500k in the US ever, though. Its not a popular genre, but I will be getting it, totally love the concept of it.

PD: At least its no longer Hakuna Matata.

Probably not.

Afrika wasn't going to sell well anyway most likely.

i don't know, i like that title better, atleast they spell it right! and besides, it almost immediately gives you an idea of what the game may be about since National Geographic is known for amazing photography, and thats basically what you do in Afrika.
