Shaz puts Codemasters Humble Bundle to the test

Full-on concentration here from our good friend Shaz who’s enjoying F1 2019, one of the games in the Humble Codemasters Bundle that’s available until 25 June.

Many thanks to both Humble and Codemasters for this magnificent bundle, which contains nearly $250 of games including DiRT Rally 2.0, Overlord 2, and DiRT 4. The money raised will enable us to maintain our online assessment and support services throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, helping gamers like Drew and Chloe to get the very best from their gaming.

Our specialist team first helped him to play games nearly a decade ago, and since then he’s become a great friend and a valued Ambassador for the charity. He’s taken time out of his work as a 3D developer to represent us at expos and events, and even skydived for us to raise funds.

“SpecialEffect have helped me with my gaming setup, mainly to play FPS games,” he said. “In my experience their team never seem to stop until they find the perfect setup!”

He’s also been monitoring the evolution of gaming accessibility over the years. "I’ve seen the games industry change incredibly,” he said. “During this time Codemasters have always been actively supporting SpecialEffect, and every Codemasters game I've bought in the last ten years has more accessibility options than any other games I own.”

For several years now we've been honoured that Humble Bundle and their participating publishers have featured us as a chosen charity. The income we've received from the bundles has been vital in enabling us to bring life-changing fun and inclusion to people across the world.

Below: A study in concentration. Shaz has cerebral palsy, and we’ve helped him maximise his gaming abilities through a variety of adapted setups over the years. Here he’s using a modified Hori Real Arcade Pro 3 with an analogue stick and various joystick SHIFT modes.
