Can you spot the connection to Digital Munya?
This one is my collaboration with game development team Luminous Sheep, at Abertay University, this game introduces players of all ages to the archaeology, visual culture, and history of caliphal Cordoba, capital of Islamic Iberia (Arabic al-Andalus).
Available for download (Windows)
Curious to explore a Córdoban
munya (villa) in an immersive Unity game environment, complete with period artefacts and Arabic primary source texts?
After a year of development I’m happy to say the Digital Munya 2 app is now available for download.
Please do let me know if you play it – I welcome feedback that will help us improve future versions.
A big thank you to our funders the
Barakat Trust, UK ESRC, Creative Informatics, Edinburgh College of Art, and University of Edinburgh History of Art for generous support for my work to make Islamic art and history accessible to all through video games and digital immersive experiences.
Digital Munya 2 was developed by the
Digital Lab for Islamic Visual Culture & Collections (DLIVCC) at the University of Edinburgh:
