African Superheroes & Video Games

I come bearing gifts my friends 🙂 Check out this link http://www.lipstickalley.com/f374/africas-video-game-super-heroes-560460/.

As we know, the video game industry is heavy with European mythology and white characters, with a few black characters sprinkled about. Well if you, like me, have ever wondered if African people will ever get to be represented and recognized in video games as super heroes look no further.

Ghanaian Eryam Tawia and his friend Wesley Kirinya are creating a much needed space for Africans in video games. These geniuses are using real African heroes and turning them into video games, are you as excited as I am?

Check out the video below to see what’s going on!
