We build great African games. We are currently working on HIRU, a Maasai-inspired 3D Video Game for consoles & PC. We immerse the player in the landscapes, beauty & culture of Africa as never seen before. Our vision for HIRU is to inspire cultural conversation, similar to Black Panther, Money Heist & Squid Game.
HIRU is the teenage son of a Maasai king. He is out herding cattle with his brother & stumbles upon poachers hunting an elephant herd. He protects the elephants successfully and goes back home to find the poachers attacking his village as revenge. While fighting, he is knocked out & wakes up to find his village destroyed, his family & clan killed & his sister kidnapped by the poachers. The gameplay is focused on intense combat, strong narrative and discovery within the environment. Players will experience the people, animals and culture of Africa.
We have signed groundbreaking partnerships with Minecraft, Xbox & Microsoft as one of the few African studios to do so. We have also received support from Ubisoft, Epic Games & Steam
