Get involved!

We are delighted to share that Pocket Gamer Connects Digital #8 will be partnering with our good friends at SpecialEffect for One Special Day on Friday, October 1st.

Since 2007, SpecialEffect has been transforming the lives of people with severe physical disabilities across the globe through innovative use of technology. At the very core of their mission is their work to maximise enjoyment, inclusion and quality of life by enabling disabled people to control video games to the best of their abilities.

What is One Special Day?

One Special Day is SpecialEffect’s flagship annual fundraising campaign, established in 2015. For this one day each year, companies and studios from all sectors of the games industry come together to raise vital income for SpecialEffect and show the world how games can change lives for the better.
