The game development industry in Kenya is at its infancy, however, there have been various developers making headway in the mobile games arena. Some of the games from our very own Kenyan developers include Bungoma Hangman, Nairobi X,Kuku Sama & Tara Toka mbio which is available on Google Playstore. The game industry in Kenya has got a boost as formal recognition of game developers is taking root, Kalasha International Film & TV Festival & Market has recently announced through its facebook page that it will have a game development award as a way to formally recognise the Kenyan developers and award the effort of game developers.
Is this a new frontier for upcoming game developers in Kenya? With formal recognition and awards there is hope for the game industry that is characterized by independent game developers. There is need to revitalise the industry through collaboration of developers in sharing resources and skills so as to create games that have international standards. We look forward to the Kalasha awards and the game developers who will be submitting their game projects.
