Pak Watch: Legacy of the Kori Odan (PC)
Aurion: Legacy of Kori Odan
Prior to discovering this game, I knew of only one game produced in Africa: PHL's air flying game, which came out of Cameroon, and had decidedly low production and non-traditional effects. That is definitely not the case with Aurion: Legacy of the Kori Odan. This game looks fantastic. Also from Camaroon, Africa, Aurion is an RPG, with 2D hand drawn style animation.
In general, I haven't seen much media from Africa or about Africa (The Lion King doesn't count. That took place in Africa, but wasn't actually about Africa in any way). So this is refreshing. It looks like they didn't get much for their kickstarter. That's too bad.
Anyway, have a look at these images, It looks like a fighting game mixed with an RPG. And the art is top knotch. And here are a couple of articles about games in Africa, for the curious.
