In this 2019 GDC session, Nyamakop's Ben Myres and Cukia Kimani delve into the unique challenges and opportunities of making games in an African country and explore the notion of "breaking into" the independent games space.
The pair offered rare perspective on what it's like to enter the game industry from South Africa, and the risks and rewards that come from starting your own indie studio instead of trying to build experience at a bigger company.
It was a great talk, so if you missed it live last year don't miss your opportunity to now watch it for free via the official GDC YouTube channel!
