This might not seem like a big deal, until you realize that it is the first 3D First Person Shooter (FPS) and multiplayer video game made in Kenya.  It is also admirable that the person who designed the game, Andrew Kaggia, is a self-taught coder. His company Black Division Games is an interactive entertainment and publishing company.

The game still is a little clunky and has some kinks to work out, but it has already created quite a buzz in international circles, and showcases the potential that Kenyan gaming has.

Nairobi X’s plot revolves around an imminent attack on Nairobi by an unknown alien colony. Player’s assume the role of Otero, an elite GSU Recce Squad member, who through an unfortunate twist of events emerges as the sole survivor in a special operation tasked to defend his country.
