METATUT is a virtual city in the metaverse created to celebrate the 100th anniversary of King Tut’s tomb.

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the discovery of King Tut’s tomb, Tutera - a creative community hub for designers who have taken ancient Egypt as their main aesthetic - has created a whole Pharaonic city in the metaverse dubbed METATUT.

This meta-city was designed to give people from all over the world a glimpse of the beauty of ancient Egypt’s civilization, and all it has to offer beyond its iconic pyramids, built by a group of students at the Academy of Scientific Research & Technology under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities. The main concept behind its design is this: if the greats of ancient Egypt came back to life and completed their architectural and cultural projects in contemporary times, what would that look like? 

Egyptian producer Hisham Kharma – known for his work on sci-fi series ‘Al Nehaya’ and docu-film ‘Come to Egypt’, which premiered during the Pharaohs’ Golden Parade – is taking part in the launch event by releasing two tracks in this corner of the metaverse. Each of these tracks will be featured in one of METATUT’s buildings, namely the Inner Pyramid and the Enchanted Melody Hall.

You can tour METATUT with VR, on your desktop or on your phone starting Friday, December 1st through the TUTERA website.
