3 video games that make a difference

Cameroon's first African role-play game: Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan, takes inspiration from across the continent to create its fantasy setting.

Game developer Madiba Olivier wanted to break 'the exotic world' image of Africa. It is showcased at Africade, the first art exhibition dedicated solely to African video games.
Never Alone is a collaboration between 8 Alaskan tribal communities and game developer E-line media. The platformer set in the harsh, challenging landscape of Alaska won the Best Debut Game at BAFTA Game Awards.

Eco is an online game where players must collaborate to build a civilization in a world where everything they do affects the environment. Work together through the player-run government and economy without polluting the world and destroying it.

"Buried" by Injunuity

Buried, a great animated short about the shameless destruction of sacred native sites by corporate interests in the Bay Area.

Baby cemetery destroyed to make room for movie theater and parking garage.
