CSI Skill Tree: Representations of Africa and Africans in Video Games

CSI Skill Tree: Representations of Africa and Africans in Video Games

The CSI Skill Tree series from the Center for Science and the Imagination at Arizona State University examines how video games envision possible futures, build rich and thought-provoking worlds, and engage people as active participants in unfolding stories.

In our latest episode, we discuss representations of Africa and Africans in video games through the lens of 80 Days, an alternate-history adaptation of Jules Verne's Around the World in Eighty Days that was Time magazine's game of the year in 2014.

Our guest is Deji Bryce Olukotun, an award-winning science fiction novelist and attorney.
