A clear sign the gaming world at large has its eyes set on Africa is evident when both Unity and Unreal begin competing for local market share. The University of Lagos in Nigeria’s most populated city will play host to a two day workshop from Epic Games in December.
The event which will be helmed by industry veteran and founder of German developer and publisher Daedalic Games – Andreas Suika (now a Technical Unreal Engine Evangelist), will offer game development hacking tips for beginners and experts.
There will also be a special class on cross-platform conversion of projects for those who are interested in porting Unity Engine projects to the Unreal Engine. A solid indication, Epic Games might actually be at the start of an executable strategy to help develop and support the sub-saharan games industry.
Attendance to the workshop which will run from December 5th to 6th is free, however participants are required to register at http://www.naijagameevo.com under events.
