Game Publisher 'OneBigGame' Has One Very Big Heart

The game industry has really taken a beating over the last two years from political activists, children’s rights groups and the press for producing games that are violent in nature and filled with "questionable" material for minors. But the flipside of the coin is that the video game industry and gamers are doing their part to change the condition of the world for the better. Martin de Ronde, Co-Founder of Guerrilla Games, is doing just that and has announced the formation of OneBigGame, a non-profit video game publisher that will focus on raising charity funds for children all over the world.

The foundation’s motto is, "Play, so others can," and represents de Ronde’s commitment in fulfilling this vision. The official website states, "… By playing OneBigGame games, young game consumers around the globe will effectively be helping their disadvantaged age counterparts across other parts of the world and improving the likelihood that these other children will one day be able to enjoy life and do what all children should be doing: play."

de Ronde, OneBigGame’s Director, thinks the game industry can have a greater impact on the good it can do. "Games and fun are an important part of many children’s lives, unfortunately not for all. The games industry has the power and the means to help change that."

He commented to Gamasutra that the new initiative has been very well received. "So far, industry response has been tremendous. Over the past months, we have been conducting informal talks with a wide variety of games industry people, and we are confident the development community is ready for a large scale industry wide charity initiative."

Jamil Moledina, Executive Director of the GDC, said, "Through OneBigGame, we, as a major entertainment industry, have a unique way to delight the audience and also improve the human condition."
