Support for Game Developers

Create inclusive, diverse games and XR+ inspired by architecture, art, and histories of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA)

Are you committed to making games with fair, respectful representations of Islamic history and civilisation? That debunk common misconceptions and offer accurate, authentic alternatives to persistent stereotypes?

I am too. Let’s work together.
