Games for Good was formed in early 2013 with some very simple aims. We want to be part of something worthwhile, providing products and services we can be proud of, and having fun along the way. In our book, fun is not a synonym for 'frivolous' or 'time-wasting'. A gameful approach can be taken to even the most serious of human issues. We want to explore the potential for games in areas such as learning, personal achievement, community cohesion, collaboration and philanthropy.
Driven by our own personal need to learn and innovate, we aim to provide an environment in which ideas can thrive and be realised, whether they be ours or those of our collaborators. We would rather share than be proprietary. Ideas which are kept in cages may not actually wither and die, but they never become as magnificent as they could.
Inspired by a love of games and play, and by the work of Jane McGonigal and others, we want to build something which will bring value to our clients and collaborators and will earn us an honest profit without causing harm to others.
Creativity and Innovation are at the forefront of what we do. With a solid background in games design, learning design, facilitation and gamification, and a range of methodologies, such as Lego Serious Play our team will work with you to achieve an exciting and engaging solution to your learning needs.
A proven track record in the creation and delivery of games based learning means that we have the skills and experience to help you turn your ideas into reality. Our skill base includes computer based design and implementation, data modelling and visualisation, coaching and board game design.
We can design, develop and deliver your project for you, or, if you prefer, help you to deliver your own outcomes. We can provide consultancy services, resources design and train the trainer events. Take just at much or as little of our help as required to get your project underway
