Hi! We’re Sara and Errol, a pair of gaming enthusiasts and liberation activists based in the UK, and we’re launching our new project, Game Assist, aiming to review and critique games from a liberation perspective.

Gaming has, for most of its history, been a profession with scarce representation marginalised identities. Broadly, we see very few characters that do fit these descriptions - and if they turn up, they’re represented in heavily stereotypical and often offensive ways - this also applies overwhelmingly to the gaming industry’s representation of physical disabilities and mental illness. Game production, especially within larger organisations, is often dominated by heterosexual white men, something we want to actively talk about.

Games also face an incredibly wide range of accessibility issues, and workers within the gaming industry are often overworked, underpaid, and without union rights. We have seen improvements in recent years, especially within the indie and experimental genres, but still have a very long way to go as an industry.

Supporting us helps us launch this project in earnest and break even in our initial setup stage. The money you donate will go towards quality recording equipment and video editing software, as well as the games that you want to see us play! Both of us are super busy people, and in order to keep this going we need your help.

Your support is deeply appreciated, and will contribute to a shift in the culture of games journalism!
