The initiative, called Games for Carers, has been supported by the likes of EA, Sega, Xbox and Konami, and you will see over 85,000 games across a range of genres, ratings and platforms available for free download.
The initial idea for Games for Carers came from Scottish video game journalist Chris Scullion, and she gained strength on Twitter before getting support from the Ukie gaming trade association.
According to the CEO
Ukie, Dr. Jo Twist, has designed the initiative to help NHS workers enjoy some downtime.
He added: “We hope this initiative will contribute somewhat to helping them understand their respect and appreciation. NHS employees who wish to request a game or free game subscription can do so by visiting giveaways.keymailer.co/nhs and entering their NHS email address.”
