Made popular by South Africa’s Triggerfish, Nigeria’s Maliyo and Kuluya Games, Leti Games,Kenya’s Ma3Racer, University of Games, and Uganda’s Matatu , gaming is picking up in the region.
Evans Ndegwa CEO Muva Studios told TechMoran that Muva Studios is managed by gaming development professionals with a common purpose of providing the best gaming experience to the players. This is through providing games that are intricately designed, released reliably, developed with high emphasis to quality and constantly updated to keep all the players well entertained.
“We were first gamers…then developers and designers and we believe we can deliver best quality and experience in this area,” Ndegwa told TechMoran. “We use in-app adverts and purchases. Few games are paid for. We are developing for Nokia Asha and working on android versions. In future we want to use gaming as a marketing tool for corporates, and open our platform for them to work with us.”
Ndegwa says gaming is different from developing enterprise softwares as it is global and much freer to steer as a team. He adds that white labelling takes long time to close business and the potential in games is equally high that’s why the firm is into games more than enterprise software development.
Founded late last year with over nine games
, Muva Studios is the latest entrant in the African gaming scene and says it has a group of game developers who share a common goal of creating and sharing simple, addictive and high quality games. The firm develops for Android, Asha iOS and Social and Desktop Games.
