A History in Afrofuturism…
AfroCyberPunk was created by Jonathan Dotse in 2010 as a blog focused on exploring the creative potential of African science fiction and speculative narratives. In 2017, AfroCyberPunk Interactive was established in Accra, Ghana, as a digital hypermedia publishing house with the aim of producing innovative and accessible new forms of interactive experiences. Our roots in afrofuturism continue to inspire the recurrent themes, motifs, and aesthetics of our publications.
A New Kind of Magic…

Anyone who has ever found themselves lost in an imaginary world will know that there’s a special kind of magic to be found within the pages of a beautifully written book. Unfortunately, many people around the world have not had the chance to experience this magic: the joys of reading have historically been a privilege for the relative few who have had access to print books and libraries.
The rise of Internet connectivity and the advent of smart phones in the 21st century are rapidly removing historically intractable barriers to information accessibility, across all regions and socioeconomic strata. Mobile devices now provide an incredibly versatile and accessible distribution platform through which creators can develop and share a wide range of immersive and interactive narrative experiences. The burgeoning new mediums of virtual and augmented reality have unleashed new dimensions of creative expression that offer the potential to radically transform the way stories are created and shared.
AfroCyberPunk Interactive is dedicated to advancing the next generation of digital publications that harness the capabilities of new and emerging media technologies; to boldly explore this vast frontier in which many new kinds of experiences are waiting to be discovered, and new kinds of stories are waiting to be told.
