Why HartNamtemah Sees Great Potential in Kiro’o Games
The video games market is a hotbed of innovation that offers numerous opportunities in programming, audiovisual communications, and cultural development. The video games market isn’t limited to game consoles but expands into ventures that include cinema, action figures, design, and machines.
Japan has Nintendo and PlayStation, France has Ubisoft, and the US has Blizzard Entertainment. Montreal, Canada is also an important hub for video game development and the film industry. Promoting video games in Africa will allow for the exchange of innovative ideas and could lead to the development of a multicultural hub in Africa that achieves international visibility.
Kiro’o Games demonstrates great potential in helping expand the video game industry in Africa. The Kiro’o Games team is dynamic and passionate about what they do. They see video games as a festive, uplifting, and creative way to further the development of the African continent. Kiro’o Games and HartNamtemah look forward to building an economic motor that achieves success at a regional and international level.
