Son of the Nile
Puzzle Game inspired by Teddy Warria’s “I am from” poems that lifts us to the vantage point of Sankofa.
The Sankofa is a mythical bird with her feet planted forward and her head turned backward.
The name comes from the Akan tribe in Ghana, translated from Twi as “it is not taboo to fetch what is at risk of being left behind” and implying a quest for knowledge utilizing the wisdom of the past.

You may think that slavery is a thing of the past but it is not.
In the heart of Mali, a remarkable collaborative project unfolded, uniting villagers, developers, and artists from across Africa. They embarked on a game design journey, where their collective wisdom and experiences intertwined to co-create captivating game concepts. Driven by the team's research, within a bustling workshop, fifty skilled developers from seven African countries joined forces with an adept Africa-based technical and artistic team. Together, they delved into the realms of imagination, fueled by the vibrant voices of the community.
As the project progressed one concept stood out — a visionary anti-slavery Afro-futurist game, aiming to shed light on the issue of slavery through a futuristic lens.
