Founded by Sithe Ncube, Prosearium is a newly launched initiative designed to get 1000 African women of all backgrounds to create and upload their own games on a platform designed to convey the digital experiences of women across the continent.
Through a series of virtual and in person workshops, support resources as well as hands on development experience, Prosearium has ambitions to increase the visibility of female developers and their games.
Sithe believes that more Africans should have a visible stake in the game development industry and benefit financially, culturally and socially from telling their own stories. She does her part in encouraging more people to make games by facilitating introductory game development and interactive fiction workshops.
The initiative has only just soft launched, but its activities are expected to ramp up significantly in 2020.
