“Playmob has long championed gaming as a force for good, helping developers and publishers to set up charitable campaigns within their games quickly and easily and enable gamers to feel part of something even bigger by transparently showing them what they are impacting, while they play their favourite games. Peace Games has a simple but crucial message - to benefit those impacted by war and violence, whether in areas of conflict or at home, across the world. Peace Games, and Peace Games Live, is the next logical step in this initiative for us.”
