LightsOut Entertainment is an independent game studio based in Lagos, Nigeria that develops PC games based on the African culture. As we all know, most games out there focus on European and American culture. That's why we want to introduce something unique to the world. With your help, we want to tell African tales through the most artistic medium that exists, by developing a video game.
Our first game titled Orishas: Birth of a Legend is a 3D platformer action adventure game which focuses on a young man named Ajagun. The story begins when the Orisha(name given to the Yoruba gods) named Eshu descends from the heavens to give a warning to the people of Ogbomosho. They refuse to heed his warnings and due to the ignorance of the people, Eshu descends in anger and massacres the entire village claiming he was under orders. Ajagun was the only survivor of this massacre and as a result of the events that occurred he set out on a journey to take revenge on the Orisha's that were involved in the massacre of his village. During his journey, he will make allies, encounter different challenges and battle the gods that he once worshiped.
