I was kinda shocked at first because I totally remember reading about this blatant Uncharted rip-off like a year ago, if not longer. I guess it's sorta... heart-warming to see that it's actually amounted to something even still, even if that something is looking to be a poorly made ripoff that looks and animates like a HD PS2 game. I can't imagine there are many Saudi-Arabian games being developed these days, though, so I'm definitely intrigued about this thing all the same.

Probably not enough to pay like £6 on PSN for it, however. Especially since that's only for the first episode for what then must be an episodic series. A quick-look could be pretty fun at least.

Here's a story trailer anywhoo so as to wet your appetite for now...

Kinda funny how they've got David Lodge voicing both the narrator and the evil villain guy, doing the bare minimum to mix up his voice.

Literally looks like a PS2 HD collection.

It's an Uncharted rip off, which was a rip off of Tomb Raider which ripped off Prince of Persia and Flashback.

Didn't this game pop up in some GB video awhile ago? I distinctly remember seeing them play this but I don't know what the video actually was.

Edit: That trailer was unintentionally hilarious. The shot of the RC car to that dramatic music is priceless.

Is this that game made by Misbehaved Canine? I still kind of want to play this game.

I need a Quick Look!

I really hope this gets to PS+ one day, because this looks like it could be a really "special" game.

I know what you're trying to say, but no, this game is an actual rip-off. The similarities between any Tomb Raider game and Uncharted don't come close to the clear 'inspirations' Unearthed has taken from Uncharted. It's what Quantum Theory was to Gears of War.

Or better yet, it's the Transmorphers to Transformers..

Omg, and it's on ps3 even... shameless. Might have to buy it.

...Has anyone actually played this on here then? To the surprise of nobody the reviews have been pretty dire. Funnily enough the developer even commented on the IGN review. He was surprisingly reasonable, though, so good on them for that.

Also, this game could still really do with a QL.

Even so, it is a valid and difficult effort for a nameless software company from a part of the world with little technological contribution.

Some of the graphics in the trailer looked cool, like the supermarket area, and others looked jarring compared with western games, like the explosions or the characters. But all and all it doesn't look that bad. I'm curious of how the developer fleshed out the Uncharted formula.

Is this out on PC yet? I could go for Uncharted lite on the PC.

Saudi Arabian Nathan Drake is a pretty cool guy. Greenlighted!

I always loved that setting, but the game looks like poop. Could make an awesome ER.

I feel like this game was made exclusively for Let's Plays, I hope Matt, Pat & Whoolie are ready.

"This season"... really? This season?! Does it think it's a T.V show or something?

To be fair, developers of episodic games (Telltale Games in particular) have been using that terminology for years.

Holy shit, NO THANKS.

They had swinging ceiling axes, literally swinging axe blades as a trap, it's 2013.
