Which languages will be supported by Muslim 3D?
The initial Launch will support English only. During Phase 1 we are planning to add support for Arabic, French, Turkish and German. Malay, Indonesian, Russian, Urdu and other languages will be added shortly after that. This selection is based on the download statistics of our demo version.
I want to support the project by purchasing a Limited Edition, but I'd rather stay anonymous.
We will honor your wish if you opt out of having your name shown in the Hall of Dua. Alternatively you can choose a different name or a shortened version, for example "M. Ali".
However - please give it a second thought. Sometimes openly supporting a good cause is a great motivation for others to follow your example, and therefore (with the right intentions) much better for you than doing it privately. We definitely encourage you to share your support with others because this will help us reach more people and deliver great content.
What religious sources do you use to create content for Muslim 3D?
In short: The Holy Quran, Prophetic tradition (authentic ahadith), the Sira (biography) of the Prophet (pbuh) by the early authors (such as Ibn Ishaq / Ibn Hisham). We are well aware that spreading knowledge about Islam is a huge responsibility, which is why accredited Islamic scholars will be supervising the content on a regular basis. See www.bigitec.com for more information.
Do I still need to do a real Hajj if I performed a virtual Hajj?
Performing a virtual Hajj using Muslim 3D is purely educational or for training purposes. While we strive to improve the virtual experience, it can never be a substitute for performing the real pilgrimage - which is mandatory for every Muslim who is physically and financially capable.
Why are you releasing Muslim 3D in 3 phases?
Creating a video game like Muslim 3D requires a team of highly skilled professionals and state-of-the-art equipment, which means a huge amount of money will be spent - long before Muslim 3D is even launched.
By releasing Muslim 3D in 3 phases we hope to start generating revenues early to relieve some of the enourmous financial pressure on our company.
For you this means you get to enjoy Muslim 3D earlier - and we can listen to your feedback and suggestions while working on new features!
When and how can I play Muslim 3D?
Muslim 3D can be purchased and downloaded via Steam, a distribution platform for PC Games & Software.
Right now Muslim 3D can only be played on your Windows PC or Notebook. Other platforms like Mobile and Virtual Reality will follow soon insha'Allah.
We will add more FAQs here! Feel free to contact us if you have other questions.
