Sauúti is a five-planet system that orbits a binary star. It is rooted deeply in a variety of African mythologies, languages, and cultures. The world is filled with wonder, mystery, and magic. It includes science-fiction elements like artificial intelligence and space flight, and both humanoid and non-humanoid creatures. It also weaves in an intricate magic system based on sound, oral traditions, and music.
All made possible with the support of Syllble and Brittle Paper – providing the spaces and platforms to develop African and African diaspora creative projects.
