7 Games You Probably Didn’t Know Were Created By Nigerians
Nigeria’s tech ecosystem is the most talked about in Africa. Why not?
You will be of the opinion that it is because Nigeria prides itself as the Giant of Africa, has a large economy and; a population that is growing faster than the economy.
But, Nigeria’s tech ecosystem is enviable, not because we have more people involved but, because there are tech meisters who are doing a lot of enviable stuff.
Sometimes, you will ask if there’s even a tech ecosystem in Nigeria – more reason you should check out the list below.
The first one that might catch your interest is Gamba. Sounds Nigerian right? It is an adventure game, where you the player (Gamba) journeys to the North in search of bounty and discovers a nearby village ravaged by the evil pirate horde. You have to play it to know what you will decide after you see evil staring in your face. Gamba was created by Black Ring which was founded by Ali Akdogan.
