The Ground Screams To Whisper
The Grounds Screams To Whisper is an Afro-Gothic immersive game experience that allows audiences to experience the triumph of being a female freedom fighter and re-live their often-erased stories of shaping Kenya’s independence struggle & post-colonial history.
In this game, the player picks a character and uncovers various clues to complete their mission to free the women's souls stuck in the world of the in-between. This experience takes us through the world of the living and the in-between, through completing rites, rituals, songs, and colonial edicts to cross over to the world of the ancestors. Can you find a way to freedom before the mists set in?
