celebrating African creatives...
August 24 – 30 , 2020
According to Games Industry Africa,
Africa is the only region in the world with an increasing youth population and by 2050, the number of youths will increase by nearly 50%. Africa would have the largest number of young people who will be key to ensuring the gaming industry thrives.
The game development industry in Africa has been buzzing for a couple of years now with African theme-based titles released by major development studios across the continent. With a large number of local indie developers working on various games independently without enough avenues to make these games published and commercially ready, there is a need to foster collaboration, creativity and productivity across the game development industry in Africa.
A GAME JAM FOR THE FUTURE
The major aim of this Pan African game jam is to foster collaboration, creativity and productivity among African game developers to create amazing games for both the local and international markets. This would be a platform to showcase the creative skills across Africa thereby creating opportunities for more youths involved in the gaming industry at large.
