Launched today, Ukie's 'Playing On' report shows the UK games sector has risen to the challenges raised by the current pandemic, rapidly adapting to new ways of working and maintaining very high levels of productivity throughout difficult circumstances, without over-reliance on governmental and public funds for support.
Under lockdown, more people than ever are accessing games to stay connected, maintain their wellbeing, and keep entertained. To reflect the importance of games in this period Ukie will be interviewing key policy makers and industry leaders on what games they're playing during isolation, and recommendations for responsible play time.
Ukie’s colouring book is now ready for you to download for free.
With special thanks to all our amazing contributors, this colouring book is jam-packed full of artwork, for everyone to enjoy. Inspired by the theme ‘play at home’, you can explore art from students through to games industry professionals.
The Coronavirus outbreak has caused unprecedented changes to markets, consumer behaviour and the way businesses operate, including those in the games industry.
Ukie is working closely with the Government to ensure that the needs of our sector are clearly understood, to provide critical support and assistance and to help shape a roadmap to a post-COVID recovery.
