Unlike the mysterious PS3 demo Afrika
, the continent of Africa doesn't exactly come up much in discussions of modern game development. This could change, though, if any of the African game projects detailed on the White African blog
manage to catch on with a worldwide audience.
Sure, the provided list of African games is pretty short, and is rendered even shorter when you take out American-made but Africa-themed games like Cabela's African Safari
. Still, the fact that these games exist at all is news to us. We're particularly intrigued by Africa
an ambitious, stalled MMO project set to take place in a 13th century version of the continent. Here's hoping we'll actually get to play it one of these days.
