Video Games For Good is a multi-artist collaboration that focusses on the positive effects of video games be they strengthened family bonds, stress relief and escapism, new friendships or simple nostalgia. The project also aims to tackle negative stereotypes that video games are only enjoyed by certain types of people or that the hobby only has detrimental effects.
I invited artists to submit artwork that answers the question:
“How have video games positively impacted your life or the lives of others?”
The results were a joy to see, and all these precious memories, funny stories and beautiful illustrations were collated into one handy book!
A Kickstarter was set up to fund print costs, and on the 26th September 2016, ended with £1,050 (double the original £500 target) thanks to the pledges of 105 backers. And now it is available to buy here!
