World premiere: our 2017 video

For past GameBlast events for SpecialEffect, we’ve created a video to promote the work of the charity and how we’re supporting them. We’re pleased to announce that our 2017 release is now available online – have a watch below!

This one is particularly special for us for two reasons, the first being that this is the first time we’ve actually appeared in one of our videos. Forward to 00:52 and you can see our team members in all their beautiful, sparkly-bearded glory.

The other thing that makes this video so special for us is that the lovely Chris from OverThinker Y has very kindly allowed us to use his music. We reached out to him after he published the track This Moment’s A Big One, Probably on his blog and loved what we heard; go listen to some of his other work on SoundCloud if you haven’t followed him already. A big thank you to Chris – we really appreciate your help and it’s great to have him on board!

If you enjoy the video above and would like to support SpecialEffect, please help us spread the word about our 72-hour marathon stream for the charity from Friday, 28 April 2017. All money raised via our JustGiving page goes directly to the charity, which puts fun and inclusion back into the lives of people with physical disabilities using equipment such as modified gaming controllers and eye-control systems.

Thank you for watching our premiere and for all of your support.
