While I do still play them, often enough, it’s only by the loosest definition of the word, that I feel comfortable thinking of myself as a gamer, these days. I do, however, still like to keep up on what’s going on with them. This article on the current up and coming cadre of African game developers was one of the more interesting and promising things I read last week, and shout out to Polygon for shining the spotlight on them. Their games aren’t exactly up to Western standards, from a technical standpoint, but I think we’ll be surprised at how quickly they’ll advance on that front. When you couple that with their unique perspectives, both culturally and individually, you can’t help but be excited for the games coming out of Africa in a few years.
