Last year a Kickstarter campaign launched for a new webseries that aims to help those with mental health issues using the power of videogames. Called CheckPoint, the webseries is now ready to kick-off starting January 29. Over two seasons, the series will focus on information about mental health issues, with games industry interviews with those who have lived through them.
With the kicker being an exploration about the uses of video games for positive well-being. Check out the trailer below.
The series includes high profile games industry veterans, including Ken Levine, Creator of the Bioshock series (Ghost Story Games); Josh Scherr, Co-Writer of Uncharted 4 and Uncharted Lost Legacy (Naughty Dog); Teddy Diefenbach, Creator of Hyper Light Drifter (Square Enix Montreal); Kelsey Gamble, Community Manager (Bethesda); Zer0Doxy, Content Creator, YouTube; Rae Johnston, Editor (Gizmodo) and TV Presenter (NITV) and Jess Hodgson, Community Manager; Ryan Roth, Games Audio Designer and Musician, and Matt Gilgenbach, Creator of Neverending Nightmares.
CheckPoint is a non-profit organisation that connects mental health resources with video games.
