PARADISE GAME, the preeminent video game company in West Africa, will introduce five independent videogame studios from Africa at the devcom 2018. There will be MASSEKA GAME STUDIO that represents Central African Republic, STUDIO LOMAY from Madagascar, MOG MEDIA DESIGN studio from Niger, WEZA INTERACTIVE studio from Kenya, and FRONTFIRE studio from Algeria.
Sidick Bakayoko, Founder and CEO of Paradise Game, said: “Our dream is to have video games as one of the main driver of the African economy, and as a way to employ millions of people throughout the continent. In order to get there, we need a strong ecosystem with game developers from Africa who export their games in the world and gain publicity internationally”.
The video game industry generates close to 100 billion dollars worldwide and 27% of these revenues come from mobile games. Africa represents a tiny part of the global market but with 500 Millions Africans who own a mobile phone, there is a huge potential.
The Video Game industry offers business opportunities to game developers and creates jobs. A video game is a tool that can also be used to promote the African culture. Paradise Game has taken up this mission to create a Made in Africa label that offers visibility and exposure to African talents who will from now on attend all the major video game events in the world.
