Friday 4 October is your chance to support
disabled gamers by buying top titles from companies
including Rovio, Supercell and Seriously.
Friday 4 October will be the best day to buy games, ever.
Spend on selected mobile, console and PC games from our partners and support SpecialEffect’s work transforming the lives of gamers with disabilities.
But One Special Day is much more than that. Many of our partners will be running events, promotions and livestreams to raise vital funds. There’s an awesome Humble Bundle, a skydive by PlayStation London Studio, a gold-plated Xbox One auction by Rare, livestreams by Criterion Games, RPGG Media and others, pin badges from Insert Coin, a Marioke evening by SEGA Hardlight, a bake-off by TAG Games and much more… or you can simply donate!
We’re so grateful to you and all the games industry companies that have united to level the playing field for gamers with disabilities. We don’t charge for any of our help, so your partnership – and your purchases – will support our therapists in helping gamers with disabilities find out what they want to play and exactly what they need to play it. You’ll be funding the personalised controller setups that we create and lend, and you’ll be enabling us to pass on what we learn to the games industry all over the world, making their products easier to use for as many people as possible.
You’re changing lives
“Once Ceyda got the equipment… her words were “I’m now a gamer!” She’s been having the time of her life. It’s something she can play with her friends and not be excluded. She’s now in the mainstream, playing games with mainstream children. She’s now like her friends. Or her and her dad will sit and play football, just having fun. It’s lovely to watch, absolutely lovely to watch.” – Ceyda’s mother
