One Special Day, held on 15 July, is an opportunity for companies to donate 100% of revenue in one or all areas of their business; a day’s sales of one or more games, or 100% of advertising revenue, in-app purchases or DLC, for example. The funds raised will be used by gamers’ charity SpecialEffect to level the playing field for people with disabilities.
Dan Pinchbeck, Creative Director at the Chinese Room, said “The Chinese Room are long-term admirers of SpecialEffect and their work to help people with disabilities experience the magic of games and on hearing about One Special Day had no hesitation in pledging our support.”
As part of their support the studio will be donating a vinyl copy of the soundtrack to their award-winning game Everyone’s Gone to the Rapture, signed by Jessica Curry, BAFTA-winning composer and co-founder of the studio. The charity will be auctioning the soundtrack as part of One Special Day.
One Special Day is open to all companies working in the games industry. To find out more, visit www.onespecialday.org.uk
