After about a decade of gaming experience in large and smaller companies, Italo-Ghanaian game designer Allan Cudicio founded his Riot Games backed studio, Twin Drums. Based between Berlin and Accra, he is currently working on the PC game The Wagadu Chronicles, the first Afrofantasy MMORPG. Allan’s big passions are Dungeons & Dragons, fried plantain, dogs, cycling, and justice.

The historical and current reasons that keep the world unequal unfortunately impact our media landscape as well in a very powerful way. There are reasons why we very rarely see games inspired by African cultures; Allan will speak about the development of the upcoming Afrofantasy MMORPG The Wagadu Chronicles, the first of its kind, highlighting unique challenges and opportunities encountered along the way.
