Star of Africa is a game which was being produced back in 1994 by Mindeye.
It is a game which is apparently based on a famous Finnish board game “Afrikan Tähti” from 1951. It was later translated to German and many other languages. Another version of the game exists elsewhere on the C64.
We don’t know too much yet about how it was found, but the game has been painstakingly translated from German and sorted out by GTW’s Jazzcat, 6R6/Nostalgia, B.A/Onslaught and Count Hadik/Depredators. Overall this has been a production done over a very long time.
The game looks impressive and comes with some cool music. Very soon we hope to learn more about it and share more of a story about the game.
But for now, this is yet another game saved from obscurity which you can now check out. We assume it would have been a commercial release had it been finished.
Check it out!
