About Us

Twin Drums was founded with the goal of challenging many of the issues of the gaming industry such as lack of representation and endemic overwork. We believe not only that our industry needs to see more changes, but also our society; making inclusive games is a small contribution to a better world.

Twin Drums strives to be a safe anti-racist, feminist, non-ableist, queer positive and anti-colonialist space.

We want to create an inclusive and flexible workspace and as a default offer remote work with a part-time (4-day week) structure. 

For more information about the project and our company check out our Kickstarter and our website.

We encourage applications particularly from women/non-binary, people with disabilities, people of colour, and other groups that are underrepresented throughout the game industry. We see you and you are more than welcome here at Twin Drums!

About The Wagadu Chronicles

Have you ever wondered what real roleplaying looks in an MMO? A place where to leave the real world behind and to fully immerse yourself into a fantasy setting in which everybody, from sorcerer to sailor, cares about their character and acts according to it.

Imagine playing a wonderful African inspired RPG where all the interesting NPCs are... actual other players! And their quests are true emergent stories that you can be part of! Imagine skill trees, village management, craft systems and countless other features, all built so that you can create rich characters full of memories and quirks.

This is The Wagadu Chronicles - the Role-Play-first Afrofantasy MMORPG: we are bringing back the "role-play" into the MMORPG genre!
