The Unknown Village is a short exploration experience inspired by the West African culture and the Afro-futurism genre. It takes place in a spiritual village where technologies and ancient traditions come together.
This project was developed in 2019 over a period of three months by four game design students.
This project gave me the occasion to research on the different West African
cultures, architectures, vegetation. And learn more about the Afro-futurism genre.
