Codemasters Humble Bundle Weekly Sale Launched
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
Codemasters have launched full force into epic sale mode with the launch of the latest Humble Bundle Weekly Sale. Massive discounts are available, as well as the option to donate to charity and pick up seven PC games that would normally set you back around $100 / £70 on Steam if bought individually.
Charity proceeds would go to SpecialEffect and the bundle is running on a pay-what-you-want format, of course you can pay more than $6 to unlock all titles, or pay under to get the first four and one DLC.
SpecialEffect is the gaming charity dedicated to using technology to enhance the quality of life of people of all ages who live with disabilities. This invaluable work often involves specialised equipment and software design to ensure that anyone, whatever their disability, can enjoy videogames and leisure technology.
The work SpecialEffect undertakes doesn’t just help raise the quality of life for people with disabilities; it can also aid in rehabilitation and help raise self-esteem for those who can’t use a computer effectively any other way. Gamers can find more about this fantastic charity at their website www.specialeffect.org.uk and see how their work directly improves lives (video below).
“We’ve been blown away by the support of Codemasters, and the funds raised by this awesome bundle are going to help many disabled people to experience the fun and enjoyment of video games,” said Mark Saville, Communication Officer, SpecialEffect.
“The money will buy equipment for our ‘whatever it takes’ loan library, providing adapted technology that has maximum impact to the people we work with. We don’t believe in simply loaning kit and walking away; people’s needs are all different and they change, so we go back to visit again and again, adjusting the technology to fit changing abilities. It’s an approach that ensures the best accessibility and it’s especially vital for gamers with progressive conditions.”
For $1 or more players can purchase the following games:
- Overlord Raising Hell (Expansion Pack)
- Operation Flashpoint: Red River
- Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising
- Rise of the Argonauts
Spend over $6 and gamers will also receive the following:
- DiRT Showdown
- DiRT 3
- Overlord II
Codemasters has a long standing relationship with SpecialEffect, and most recently partnered with the charity in an internal GameJam where Codemasters development teams were given the opportunity to create games with improved controls for those with disabilities or could improve a gamer’s health and wellbeing through play. These concepts included games that used peripherals that enabled players to control the game with their eyes, and even directly from their minds. Gamers can read about the GameJam and some of the games which were developed on the Codemasters Blog.
