We have launched a series of exciting resources for young people and parents as part of our new video games and literacy campaign with the Association of UK Interactive Entertainment and Penguin Random House Children’s. The Georgia State research project involved 47 college-age participants, with 28 categorised as regular video game players and 19 as non-players. Frequent players of video games show superior sensorimotor decision-making skills and enhanced activity in key regions of the brain when compared to non-players. Our friends in the industry have a wealth of advice, support and resources available for young people, parents and teachers who want to find out more about video games. Shahneila Saeed, Head of Education at Ukie and Director of the Digital Schoolhouse discusses the role video games can have in supporting children’s literacy and creativity. We teamed up with TamingGaming.com to create a recommended list of video games for families that can help support young people’s literacy.

This Horizon Forbidden West deal saves you £22
Studying one of the computer games courses at Abertay University is the first step towards a rewarding career in one of the most exciting creative industries. Abertay graduates have gone on to work for leading computer games companies – including Sony, Microsoft, Electronic Arts, Rockstar North and 4J Studios. Fortunately, nobody ever bothered to relay this message to developer Andrew Shouldice. His latest effort, Tunic, is a video game that knows you want to peek behind every cascading wall of water, swaying blade of grass, and crumbling statue in search of treasure. And it rewards that curiosity repeatedly, via an intricate puzzle box of a world filled with constant mystery, surprise, and revelation. Video games are a significant cultural and creative force, often involving a number of art forms, including narrative, design and audio composition.
It feels great to once again play as Aloy and explore an apocalyptic future filled with incredible machines and ancient ruins. Forbidden West really takes everything that worked in its acclaimed predecessor and builds upon it in spectacular style. Please Fix The Road is pretty much what it is like to be a main character in one of those shorts that are oftentimes better than the Pixar film you’ve booked to see. Your task, simple though it may seem, is to direct cars, boats, trains and so on to their destination on a little gridded square of land. Maybe the best thing to say about this magnificent game is that even after tens of hours spent in The Lands Between, hundreds perhaps, you won’t have stopped thinking about it.
