With over three billion gamers worldwide, the power of play has never been greater. But how can that attention, that engagement and the sheer amount of time spent playing games be used to make the world a better place?
Monetisation is a topic that comes up repeatedly in PocketGamer - from our news pages to the podcast, but it rarely strays outside the commercial reality of business. This week's podcast moves into a far more generous and beneficial conversation.
Tiltify is a company at the forefront of the 'gaming for good' sector. The company offers a fundraising platform which allows gamers, streamers, influencers and developers to raise money for charity.
In this week's podcast
Tom Downie, Tiltify's UK charity manager joins the PG.biz podcast team to talk about the company's work, the new opportunities for game creators to build greater engagement with their players, open up new game design ideas and build in donations from the outset.
From the relative generosity of the various social channels to the ways in which game creators can integrate charitable giving into DLC (including a sentient sword which only works on bees!), Tom highlights some of the ways in which the company is helping the games industry give generously.
