Middle Eastern video games and comic books

Heidi Campbell’s new blog, When Religion Meets New Media, has a link to this article Muslims craft their own video games | csmonitor.com. Looks like an interesting game. I wonder if it’ll be available here in NZ?

Related to this is the development of Middle Eastern comic books. At this point they follow American formats reasonably closely, but open up the possibility of developing their own style more close related to local themes. See Silver Bullet Comics: Special AK: AK Comics and Heroes of the Middle East and AK COMICS Inc.

Marvel comics have a venture in the Middle East too, though Teshkeel Comics.
