Muslims craft their own video games

Today I came across this article from the Christian Science monitor which tells about how Muslim designers are trying to create alternative naratives about Islam through video games. Check out: Muslims craft their own video games

Thanks for the link, Heidi. Looking forward to seeing more interesting things here.

The development of Muslim/Middle Eastern video games is also being parallel by the development of Middle Easter comic books as well. Some of these are merely translations of Western titles into Arabic, but others are now developing Middle Eastern characters and setting narratives there.
