In partnership with University of Salford.

Humans have been playing games for over 5500 years, even more so since the advent of video games in the 70s.

We explore the enduring appeal of games and gaming as a means of escapism. We discuss the social aspect of gaming and individual experience.

Finding your tribe through games and gaming and how those connections enhance your life.

We are joined by Twitch Streamer Rachel Birtwistle, Steamforged Games Designer Jamie Perkins, and Everyone Can a charity changing lives through the power of gaming.
