Maliyo Games is offering an incredible opportunity for aspiring game artists through its upcoming Game Art Training Programme, scheduled to commence on May 30.

The Nigerian video game developer revealed that participants in the upcoming three-month training programme will receive comprehensive instruction in character design, promotional art design, environment design, scene design, animation, storyboarding, and 3D modelling. In addition to mastering these critical game art skills, participants will also hone their ability to collaborate artistically, communicate effectively, and work well as part of a team. These highly valued skills are essential in the competitive and fast-paced world of game development, making the Game Art Training Programme an ideal opportunity for aspiring game artists looking to enhance their capabilities.

Maliyo Games reaffirms its commitment to creating opportunities for individuals eager to break into the burgeoning African video game industry as upon successfully completing the Game Art Training Programme, participants will be eligible to apply for career opportunities at Maliyo Games, positioning them for success in the dynamic video game industry.

Hugo Obi, the company’s founder, cites the success of its game developer programme, GameUp Africa, as a testament to this dedication. Obi notes that the initiative has given Maliyo Games an advantage in building its in-house engineering team, having hired 15 skilled engineers from the GameUp Africa pipeline in just two years. This progress is revolutionising the company’s game development processes, and Maliyo Games continues to prioritise empowering aspiring game developers.

“For a few years now, Maliyo Games’ game developer programme (GameUp Africa) has given us the edge in building our in-house engineering team. In the past 2 years alone, we’ve been able to hire 15 engineers from the GameUp Africa pipeline, and this is truly transforming the way we create.”

“Even then, building games takes a lot more than just good mechanics and design systems; quality art is critical to any game’s success. That’s why I am excited to announce that Maliyo Games is launching a Game Arts Training Programme! If you are an artist interested in building a career in the African games industry or know anyone who is, help us spread the word!
