UK trade arm TIGA has announced this morning that charity SpecialEffect has joined its ranks.

The charity was set up to help those unable to play games traditionally through disability be able to do so by using adapted technology. It was from its work it was invited to the group.

“SpecialEffect is delighted to be joining TIGA at such a pivotal moment in our development. TIGA is a key organisation within the games industry, and our membership will allow us to further strengthen our ties with developers, publishers and the gaming community in general,” said SpecialEffect director Mick Donegan.

TIGA chairman Jason Kingsley added it was “delighted to be working” with SpecialEffect to help achieve as many people as possible playing games.

“SpecialEffect’s inclusive work is of utmost importance, ensuring that games can be enjoyed by everyone and used to help develop and nurture youngsters,” continued TIGA CEO Richard Wilson.

“We are really pleased that SpecialEffect has joined TIGA and we look forward to working with them.”
