Ghana headquartered Leti Arts is mostly known for its stunning artwork as well as its very talented software development team. Founded by Eyram Tawia and Wesley Kirinya in 2009, the company’s mission is to create the next African superheroes via comics and games and has since crafted award winning games like iWarriors and Africa’s Legends to its portfolio.
According to DevCongress, Later last year, Leti Arts won in the “Most Established App” category in the Vodafone AppStar Competition in Ghana when it presented Africa’s Legends. This qualified the bonafide game company to the international competition held in India earlier this week together with Vicinity App, the winner for Upcoming Developer category from Ghana.
AppStar is the Annual Developer Contest conducted by Vodafone, for developers across several countries of African & Asian continent, to promote local talent & bring them to the international stage.
In the international competition in India this year, Leti Arts competed with several other app stars from Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa and India.
Leti Arts came tops internationally as the winners were announced. Second place was CarGuru from South Africa, which simplifies “your motoring experience, to provide one easy-to-use resource for all your motoring needs.”
With the help of the Norwegian nonprofit the Meltwater Foundation, Leti Arts released its first for Africans by Africans game titled iWarrior in 2009. Perhaps, one day they will make a game where Superman will seek Shaka Zulu’s help to fight against Kryptonite.
