Positive impact touches the gaming industry in Africa.
Let us tell you how.
Africa’s Legends, the flagship game of Leti Arts, launched in 2013. “We celebrate our continent’s vast histories, folklores and cultures.” Explains Leti Arts Founder, Eryam Tawia from Ghana. To share our continent’s histories and folklores, Eyram’s staff spends weeks researching and developing characters.
In 2015, his mentors with the African Entrepreneurship Award saw his personal potential. Eyram used his $25,000 “Most Heart” award funding to hire researchers and developers.
Today, those developers have created 12 characters from all over Africa– some good, some evil, and some neutral. “We have 10 countries represented in the form of characters, from Mali, Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Zimbabwe, CAR, South Sudan, Niger, DRC, and Somalia,” explains Eryam.
When Eyram applied to the African Entrepreneurship Award in 2015, downloads of Africa’s Legends sat at about 40,000. Since winning the Award, that number has grown to 70,000.
