Remember, not every "fantasy" world has to have knights and castles. Aurion, legacy of the Kori-Odan is a new game from a developer based in Cameroon that explores "a wonderful African Fantasy world".

That's the kind of setting I'll admit I haven't played much of; the last I can remember off the top of my head was Quest For Glory III, and, ahem, that was a very long time ago.

Aurion is an action-RPG, and it's currently up on Steam Greenlight.
