Video walkthrough of Maori pa interactive game

I stumbled across this really neat walk-through of a small Maori pa, or fortified village.  The video shows a couple of typical pa buildings and palisades, and also has a great sequence on a Maori myth about the formation of the land that is now New Zealand.

This video was developed by software developer Tarique Naseem to showcase his concept for a fully interactive game in which the player walks around a Maori pa.

The player will have to complete tasks to gain enough mana to access the higher levels of the pa.  All the tasks are based on the workings of the pa itself, with the emphasis on gaining knowledge of Maori history.

Tarique is currently looking for funding to continue this project!
