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.
This week we're joined by journalist, editor of AskAboutGames, and author of upcoming book Taming Gaming: Guide Your Child to Video Game Health, Andy Roberston.
This month Ukie has partnered with the Entertainment Retailers Association (ERA) on a new campaign for games, Must Play May.
To the wider world, the games industry has never been more successful. More people than ever are playing games and they now tackle broad range of topics and genres, across a number of platforms, spending £5.7 billion on games and games culture in 2018. They offer fun and many other positive benefits to the globally connected communities of millions who play them safely and sensibly every day.
