Here's a nice feel-good story for today. If you work for the NHS in the UK, you're now able to get a free game thanks to the Games for Carers initiative. The initiative is being run by Ukie (UK Interactive Entertainment), with support from Keymailer after the original idea from journalist Chris Scullion.
Over 85,000 games across various genres will be given away, from tons of different developers and publishers aimed at supporting those who are working to help fight the Coronavirus. It launched yesterday, and the amount of games included is expected to keep growing.
Some of the developers involved include THQ Nordic, tinyBuild Games, SEGA, Creative Assembly, Devolver Digital, Double Fine Productions, Koch Media, Introversion Software, Team 17 and plenty more.
The wider UK games industry has been trying to get a message of support out, with different publishers and developers doing their own thing with this going a step further to unite the effort as Dr Jo Twist, CEO of Ukie said: "The UK games industry has been proud to play its part in conveying these vital public health messages during this national emergency. Now our community has united again to say thank you to the truly extraordinary people who make up the NHS frontline team. Games companies of all sizes and players everywhere recognise their exceptional dedication and hope this initiative goes some way to help them to understand how respected and valued they are".
