As Maliyo Games partners Google for GameUp Bootcamp
Maliyo Games, a Nigerian game developer, in partnership with Google is set to host GameUp Bootcamp in Ghana, Kenya, and Nigeria to prepare young people for career success in the global gaming market.
In addition to learning to create mobile games for the Google Play store with support and mentoring provided by Maliyo Games, participants will also acquire skills on how to refine, package and develop casual android games using a modern self-paced and project-based learning system.
Hugo Obi, the founder of Maliyo Games, while speaking on the programme expressed excitement working with Google to extend its in-house training programme to hundreds of young people in Ghana, Kenya and Nigeria.
He added that Africa has a huge business opportunity for creatives which aligns with Maliyo’s goal of embedding the continent’s vibrant culture into video games.
“The African continent, with over 500 million mobile phone users, represents a massive business opportunity for people who have the creative and technical skills. That is the need we are addressing with this bootcamp. Our goal is to embed Africa’s vibrant culture into video games through storylines, character development, immersive environments, captivating sounds and strong visuals,” Obi said.
While application closes by 2nd August, selected participants will have instructors who will periodically assess and evaluate students performance in addition to having accessibility to valuable peer support from the African gaming community as well as a generous data allowance to enable students to access course materials and download the relevant software.
