GAMES + CULTURE = icon_heart

Kawaida's Journey is an ambitious mobile game, in which you experience the spirit of east african environment and culture. And it's an intercultural project! In building the game we work hand in hand with tanzanian artists and non-governmental organizations. So let us overcome cultural boundaries via the thing we all share passion for - games.

THE GAME

A small fishing village surrounded by palm trees in the south of Zanzibar. Kawaida, a young vervet monkey, wakes up after a strange dream in which he has encountered his family for the first time. Suddenly, everything has changed: "Where are they? And where do I come from?" Kawaida's curiosity is piqued! He jumps out of his den and right into his biggest adventure...

    IT'S IN THE MIX!

    We are an intercultural team of Tanzanian and German artists who create an unique mobile game set in the East African environment. Our aim is to draw attention to Swahili culture and encourage cross-cultural communication and social development. To do so we combine Swahili references with great gameplay and storytelling.
