Video description

Sankofa, meaning literally, “go back and get it”, tells the story from past to present of the Akan people, from their rich culture and day to day life, to the fate they ultimately lived. The player travels from the mythological beginning of the universe, weaving through both history and legend, guided through the world by Anansi, the spider spirit and keeper of stories. Through adventure gameplay with rpg elements, the player completes challenges and lives their own story as one of the Akan people, taking on the power of the spirits in their quest to outwit Anansi, and ultimately death himself. Despite this victory however, the future still holds the undeniable history of slavery for the Akan people we have come to know and relate to.

Sankofa aims to bring a cultural understanding of history not regularly covered in standard educational curriculum. Schools may cover the topic of slavery, but there is not often an opportunity to understand and relate to the personalities and day to day lives of the people affected by it.
