Two Nigerians Built a Game Based on the Popular African Myths

There has never really been a space for African mythology in fantasy realms, and that’s why projects like these – ones that tap into Africa’s rich culture – are always welcome.

Creative artist, Akdogan Ali, and programmer, Umusu Samson Iruo, decided to embark on a journey in creating a video game that will showcase Africa to the world: Throne of gods.

Throne of gods is an epic fighting game based on African mythology, where players get to use different African gods and goddesses to battle.

Right now, they only have a beta version released for test purposes with two playable characters – but you can get started trying it out right here.
