Call for Applications: Fully Sponsored Gaming Training with Intel

This past weekend at the inauguralIntel Gaming Challenge, Nairobi gamers got to spend an entire day playing both international games and local games Ma3 Racer by Planet Rackus and African Legends by Leti Games.

We want to see the Kenyan gaming community move beyond simply consuming content developed elsewhere and into developing high quality games with both local and international appeal. We want to see more success stories, and we're willing to support the creation of these success stories.
