Speaker Fak'ugesi Arcade
I am a BAFTA-nominated creative director for games and interactive based in Nairobi, Kenya with a focus on meaningful and impact-driven initiatives. He is Head of Product at Internet of Elephants; a games studio in Kenya which leverages the power of games to benefit wildlife and nature. Using real scientific data at the core of our products, we build partnerships with established brands such as National Geographic and Adidas to reach new audiences. Our latest title ‘Wildeverse’ is a mobile AR game that puts players in the shoes of wildlife scientists, and beams them to some of the wildest places on Earth. Prior to IoE, I consulted on many games initiatives across Africa, and was also a creative director at the UK's Academy award-winning Aardman Animations in their games division.
