Manchester Gamers Unite in aid of SpecialEffect

Manchester Gamers Unite have kindly adopted SpecialEffect as their chosen cause and intend to raise funds and awareness at a September launch party later this month to celebrate two years of bringing the gaming and game development community of the city together along with a special rebrand launch.

SpecialEffect Ambassador Stephen Hey will be attending the event, which will be on 27 September at The Lazy Lizard Ibizan Beach Lounge in the Printworks. There'll be charity wristbands available on the night along with videos of our work. A big thank you to all involved!

You can get tickets here.

Aimed at bringing gamers and game developers together like never seen before through community driven development Manchester Gamers Unite has grown into becoming Manchester’s leading gaming event. This event will see special developer appearances from Ubisoft, Electronic Arts, a VR Kat Walk available for people to try out and many Manchester based game studios showcasing their early development games to the public for feedback whilst in a friendly community driven environment

Free entry, good food and drink, friendly people, networking, games to play, tournaments to take part in, prizes to win and the chance to help celebrate a new future for Manchester’s leading gaming event.
