Enter Africa co-production

ENTER AFRICA: Eurafrican Co-production Market

Like the Goethe Institut we believe serious gaming can encourage young people in Sub-Saharan Africa to use game thinking as a tool to address everyday challenges.We want to create a game ecosystem that represents African Culture and reimagines African futures.

Enter Africa was launched in 2018 by the Goethe Institut and we decided to join them in this innovative project. This is a creative African network made up of interdisciplinary teams including game developers, city planners, story tellers, artists, architects and engineers in 15 African mega cities.

Our activity aims at providing education and solutions  through a selective market dedicated to promising African studios and to European studios that are open to cooperation. A market that take the shape of a platform to connect, showcase, network and interact between studios, institutions, publishers and financiers.

Enter Africa, Goethe Institut and SpielFabrique are pleased to announce that 3 studios out of the 6 finalists have been declared winners of the Enter Africa competition for the quality of their African video game concepts:

 

  • Bonobo Studio and the game The Guardian Dynasty – Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo

 

  • Work’D and the game Gbakaman Racing – Abidjan, Ivory Coast

 

 

 

These 3 studios will therefore benefit from an online support and a trip to Europe on the year 2020 to find co-producers in order to develop their games.
We are therefore now looking for co-producers, please feel free to contact us if you’re interested.

 

Those 3 studios came out a long list of 24 studios from Enter Africa 15 countries. A Panel of pre-selection , composed by gaming and cultural industries experts from Africa and Europe, established a short list of the 6 best studios.

The final jury, composed by Isabelle Drouin (Orange – France), Robert Mugisha (DopeApps – Rwanda), Hervé Delabrousse (Gameloft – Africa), Nathan Masyuko (LudiqueWorks – Kenya), Yves le Yaouanq (Ubisoft – France), Andreas Suika (Epic Games, Germany) took place on the 16th of January 2020.
