​“As a parent it’s made so much difference”

Here's a video of Nikki, mum of Chase, talking about the power of inclusion in video games. Chase’s severe cerebral palsy means he can’t use a standard games controller, but now he's having a fantastic time playing with his friends and family thanks to a custom control setup created by our team.

“We’ve always been a huge gaming family so it’s something I wanted my children to have the opportunity to do,” said Nikki.

“Particularly for disabled people, I think games are really important because someone who’s able-bodied can go and play golf, they can drive a car, they can do almost anything in real life. Chase isn’t going to have those same opportunities, so (him) being able to play a game creates a level playing field.”

Thank you Nikki. The real impact of our work goes way beyond simply having fun, and we're honoured to be able to play a small part in making that magic happen.
