Africacomicade’s Gamathon Returns in November 2021

The Africacomicade Gamathon is Africa's largest convention of digital creatives in the games, animation, comics, and XR industry, creating a platform for them to showcase their work, network, and find opportunities for collaboration and funding.

It is a two-week hybrid event, allowing participation from across the world virtually and rounding off with a physical expo event in Lagos, Nigeria. It consists of workshops, industry talks, panel sessions, game pitch competitions, exhibitions, and a game jam.

This year it will take place between 15th and 27th November 2021, with the physical event happening on the final day ( 27th of November).

Africacomicade’s main mission is focused on connecting African digital creatives together to design and develop projects that would impact Africa’s ever-growing creative industry. 

Africacomicade envisages a creative African community that can build, collaborate, and sell globally. During Africacomicade’s inaugural Gamathon in 2020, they reached about 200+ creatives and attracted 45+ partnerships across the globe.
