STOCKHOLM — April 3, 2014 — Paradox Interactive today announced a new partnership with the AbleGamers Foundation, a charity dedicated to improving the lives of those with disabilities through the power of video games. Paradox will support AbleGamers for “Everyone Can Game,” a program which will raise money for the AbleGamers Charity and build awareness among gamers and developers about keeping games accessible to everybody.
At PAX East, Paradox and AbleGamers will encourage charitable donations from gamers with the Pachinko for Charity event at the AbleGamers booth, where attendees can win a wide variety of game codes from the industry’s biggest publishers, including Paradox Interactive. Paradox will match the first $7,500 in donations, dollar for dollar. To help donate to the cause, please visit AbleGamers in the BandLands area, directly in front of the escalators to the PAX East show floor.
“We’ve said before that we create games that fit the ‘Gamer Lifestyle,’ and we want to make sure that’s true for every gamer,” said Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox Interactive. “Supporting AbleGamers in their quest to promote awareness for accessibility in games will help us all to enable gamers to be gamers, regardless of their background.”
