Why is this in the "Arabian" category? It's set in India.

Simply submit a correction to correct such errors; no need to start a thread. (Via the Edit button at the top right of a game's page.)

Well, don't, because I just did.

Sorry, I didn't realize it could be edited. I looked after I posted and submitted a correction already. Still puzzled as to who would think India is Arabian.

The Arabian categorization isn't completely inaccurate. According to the game's description, its thematic background centers around Akbar the Great (a Muslim emperor; not surprising with a name like his ) unification of the Mughal state, which is now comprised of modern India and several surrounding countries, including Pakistan. thumbsup

I'm not sure what you mean. Not all Muslims are Arab and Pakistan is not Arab.

Hmm, you're right! I guess it was my misconception of what makes up the Muslim Middle East, which Arabia is part of. But like you said, not all Arabs are Muslims. I guess the game should just be put in the "India" category/family.
Either way, I'm looking forward to learning more about the game and its theme. thumbsup
