It is your duty to purge the ancient corruption and begin the new awakening.This game is made to inspire Africa. In our own way, we are all a version of Mzito, with the potential of awakening Africa through our talents, skills and ideas. We all want a bright future for Africa and Mzito embodies exactly that.The Mzito Universe centres around cultural and semi-fictional characters that are chosen by Ancient African spirits. These Spirits symbolize the pillars of African culture and guide these characters through their journeys. These characters are called the “Mzito”. The universe takes inspiration from African culture, traditions, art, beliefs, history and mythology and depicts normal human societal challenges through an epic adventure to Save and Unite Africa.

History

This game is made to inspire Africa. In our own way, we are all a

version of Mzito, with the potential of awakening Africa through our

talents, skills and ideas. We all want a bright future for our continent

and Mzito was made to not only embody this but to portray the beauty of African art, culture and its majestic scenery.

" Mzito began as a small concept early 2016 but throughout the year it grew into something much bigger than us and even got chosen as one of the winners of the French Tech Ticket. We are now being incubated in Plaine Image for a 12-month program and we now believe Mzito will not only continue to grow... it will make African Gaming History " -- George Odongo Ahere.
