New Lists

These lists have just been added to the database in the last few weeks.


These are games that are helpful for mental health. This includes games that have been helpful for specific mental health challenges, as well as games that help us understand the challenge faced by the people we love. Some of these are designed to be used as a source of games that offer wellbeing in different ways.


These relate to games with different educational benefits. Along with games that are designed to be educational, this includes games that can inspire learning and knowledge because of the worlds and stories they create. The collateral learning uncovered here is a glimpse into the ways games can help children learn about themselves, their community and the world.

Pathways - Real Life Gaming Stories

Game Pathways uncover the real experiences children are having with the games they play. They are created from interviews with real families, teachers and professionals who have found games lead to positive outcomes in their lives.

Accessibile Game Search

We have worked with a range of accessibility experts to add key accessibility data to the database for both video games and board games. This includes areas of Difficulty, Reading, Navigation, Controls, Visuals, Audio and Communication.

Taming Gaming Book Written by parents for parents, the database complements the in-depth discussion about video game addiction, violence, spending and online safety in the Taming Gaming book. We are an editorially independent, free resource without adverts that is supported by partnerships.
