Developers Parapo: Games Out of Africa – Introducing MALIYO GAMES


CcHUB for the May Edition of DevParapo is transforming into a Game Arcade to introduce the enchanting Maliyo Games.

MALIYO Games is a Nigerian company, which shares the experiences of everyday Africans with a global audience through games. MALIYO creates casual browser games with African Themes, Narratives, Environments, Characters and Sound.

Operating out of Co-creation Hub, MALIYO is pioneering casual gaming, designed to be localised, fun, engaging and entertaining. With titles such as Okada Ride, Aboki, Kidnapped, and Mosquitoes Smasher, MALIYO and CcHUB invite the entire tech community to a product experience session on 30th of May 2012.

The global game industry generated around $60 billion in total revenue for 2011, and is growing at a rate of 10 percent annually with predictions to hit $80 billion by 2012 spurred largely by growth in mobile and online games. With African audiences increasingly seeking locally relevant content and with the increase in web and mobile penetration on the continent, local developers should be latching on and creating these applications.

Hugo Obi and the entire MALIYO team will be around to share insights on how the entire community can leverage their work for value creation. Their presentation will followed by discussions on the opportunities in gaming in Nigeria and beyond.

Date: 31th May 2012
