About Us

Team

 

The project is the result of the successful collaboration of three partner entities:

 

Cologne Game Lab of TH-Koeln, a German university of Applied Sciences

 

Video Games Without Borders, an international nonprofit organization

 

Wixel Studio, a Lebanese game development studio

 

Our team, the majority of which is composed of Middle Eastern and North African residents and refugees, is a mix of scientists, entertainment game veterans, and humanitarians. More than 60 people collaborated in the release of this game.

 

Funding partner

“Antura and the Letters” won the international call EduApp4Syria and was funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs

 

 

Our community is also composed of Universities and NGOs who are helping us disseminate the game among refugee families.
