The One Special Day difference for Ryan

In less than two weeks, over 50 games developers and publishers will be uniting to bring the magic of gaming to people like Ryan, who we visited again this week.

We’ve been helping Ryan, who has muscular dystrophy, for a year now. We initially set him up with a chin-controlled joystick and a couple of switches that allowed him to play racing games and FIFA, but recently he’s been wanting to get his gaming teeth into GTA.

So Joe and Frankie worked out a complex but game-changing control setup that now lets him play using a combination of a foot switch, a button by his left hand, chin and tongue controls on an adapted controller, and voice controls via a PC.

It’s transformed his gaming, and it wouldn’t be possible without the wonderful support of so many individuals, communities and companies.

Many of those companies will be coming together to be loud and proud about gaming for good on 28 September. It’s our annual One Special Day fundraising day where developers and publishers will be donating a day’s revenue from some or all of their games, or holding other amazing fundraising events. The companies include a stellar line up of mobile games developers including Supercell, Rovio, Space Ape Games, Seriously, Nordeus, Miniclip, Outfit 7, Glue Mobile, New Star Games, First Touch Games, Glue Mobile, Fingersoft, NaturalMotion, Outfit 7, Tundra and Mag Interactive who are all donating revenue from the day!

There’s still time to be part of this incredible day. Find out more and help us transform more lives like Ryan's!
