Salam Al Amir reports:

The developer of an online game called Mariam, which Sharjah and Dubai Police warned against using, denied accusations that his game uses information provided by players as a privacy breach.

On his Twitter account, Salman Al Harbi, a Saudi Arabian national, said that Mariam was just a game. “I developed the game along with a number of Saudi men last July and it is just for fun,” he tweeted. “It does not save answers nor information provided by players.”

The game, which sparked debates in several Gulf countries, is about a little girl who gets lost in a deserted area and asks players to help guide her back home.
