Metatut: The metaverse to travel to ancient Egypt

This is the first Egyptian city in the metaverse developed by the company Tutera, to visit ancient Egypt at the time of King Tutankhamun without leaving your home.

The possibility of traveling to Egypt without leaving home is a reality, thanks to the new project proposed by the Tutera hub, announcing the launch of the initial phase of Metatut: the metaverse of ancient Egypt at the time of King Tutankhamun.

Metatut is a virtual city that represents the art, architecture, and the most relevant places of Tutankhamun’s time in the metaverse. The initiative to carry out this virtual space was carried out in the vicinity of Cube ConsultantThe initiative to carry out this virtual space was carried out in the vicinity of Metatut, a studio that has become the development center of this metaverse, under which a group of designers, software engineers, architects and developers carried out the entire study to make Metatut a reality.

Tutera is a contemporary community center focused on the new generation of innovative creators and designers from various fields of arts and architecture, located anywhere in the world. The main objective is to complement the beauty and spirit of ancient Egypt, and to make it relevant to today’s context.

The Tutera hub team announced the initial phase of Metatut on November 22, 2022. The date was not chosen at random, as it coincides with the 100th anniversary of the discovery of the tomb of the Egyptian pharaoh, and on this occasion it is also the starting point for a new virtual city that will represent the spirit of ancient Egypt.

Heba Soliman, Tutera’s executive manager, said that Metatut is the future city of Tut in the virtual world, and seeks to simulate the civilization of ancient Egypt at the time of King Tutankhamun.

He also explained that the idea of creating the city of Metatut is to be able to live a complete immersive experience that combines Egyptian civilization with a modern space. In this way, one of the main objectives is that people who visit this virtual city can live, trade, do business and interact in real life, but also in the metaverse.

Khaled Radwan, Metatut’s CEO, said that this virtual space has multiple objectives, and one of them is to activate technological applications in the creation of a new virtual lifestyle that crosses the boundaries of time and space to maximize economic returns.

He added that a major goal is to develop the basis of a virtual urban assembly that combines history and the future. Radwan was among the first people to enjoy Metatut using virtual reality glasses and two joysticks to control his avatar in the metaverse.


The first stage of the metaverse was unveiled on November 30, 2022 at the inauguration of the Avenue of the Kings: a representation of the Valley of the Kings leading to the Great Pyramid.

Then, it was expanded on December 12 with the announcement of the second stage and the opening of the Hall of the Sun, and the Palace of King Akhenaten. Following this, the third stage was inaugurated and was published on December 28 with the presentation of the Palace of Queen Nefertiti along with its halls focused on fashion and women’s beauty.
