African game developers can now apply for Google’s Indie Games Accelerator

by | May 9, 2019

According to Google, the Indie Games Accelerator programme is a “special edition of Launchpad Accelerator and is focused on helping top indie game developers from select emerging markets achieve their full potential on Google Play.”

The Indie Games Accelerator programme was previously available for gaming talent from India, Pakistan and Southeast Asia. But Google says they are bringing it back in 2019 and expanding to “select markets in Asia, Middle East & Africa and Latin America to support indie game startups.”

For Middle East and Africa, developers and startups from  Egypt, Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon, Nigeria, South Africa, Tunisia and Turkey are eligible to apply.

Successful participants will be invited to two all-expense-paid gaming bootcamps in Singapore, where they will receive personalised mentorship, invites to events, and other exclusive benefits to help them grow on Android and Google Play.

Application deadline is on the 19th of May 2019, to get more information and apply, click on this Events With Google page.
