A Game for Helen – Special Effect

Image of ten year old girl Helen, smiling warmly. Text reads: A Game for Helen - Help us create a very special computer games suite for the young people of Helen and Douglas House.Last Friday Special Effect launched themselves formally in Oxfordshire. Here past, present and future projects were demonstrated and explained to the gathered crowd. Likely future UK Prime Minister, David Cameron was there as a speaker. He mentioned that after being shown around a nuclear submarine packed full of technology the day before, it was great to see technology that’s designed for enriching people’s lives, rather than for blowing them up. He also made mention of his 6 year old son who has Cerebral Palsy, and pledged to open any doors he could for the charity.

Have a good look around their newly spruced web-site to learn more of their projects. I’m especially excited to be involved with the “Game for Helen” project. And again, visit their Facebook page to see photos of the recent Accessible Gaming Roadshows.
