Our first online multiplayer game isn't what you'd expect

Ludo, which is Latin for "I play", is the most played board game in Nigeria. It's also played in most parts of the world, so if you search the popular app stores for Ludo, you're likely to find almost a dozen versions of the game. But the rules differ from country to country, and there's nowhere to download a Ludo game that plays with the Nigerian rules! That's where we come in. We’re creating a Nigerian-themed Ludo game for iPads, iPhones, Android devices and Windows 10 devices.
The game isn't too large, we have covered the cost of all the art work, modelling, music and programming. We need at least $1,000 for two things right now:  to keep the game's servers running and to run a small marketing campaign in Nigeria. This game was made with Nigerians in mind, and it won't be any good if the game is out but no one has heard about it, so the few people who have the game can't find anyone to play against online.
Work in progress. Final game likely to look different

In 2015, launched an Indiegogo campaign. We were able to raise about 70% of the goal. We experienced delays in production from our initial goal of Q4 2015, but we’re on track to complete the game in Q2 2016. We’ll keep you posted on our progress as we draw closer to completion.
