RE-PLAY retro-inspired gaming campaign

On the 12th April War Child UK, the charity for vulnerable children affected by conflict, are launching RE-PLAY, a fundraising campaign which is all about encouraging gamers to reconnect with the nostalgia of playing as a child with some of their favourite retro games, helping raise money and awareness for children affected by conflict, and protecting their right to play. Because life should always be about more than just survival.

As part of the launch, War Child UK have a number of activities available. These include a Steam flash ‘RE-PLAY’ sale, which gives gamers the chance to buy old and newer versions of games including the XCOM and Civilisation series from 2K, OliOli 2 from Roll7, Psychonauts from Double Fine, and many more.

We rather like this retro Fallout t-shirt, which is available to buy as part of the RE-PLAY campaign.

Comedian Steve McNeil is also hosting a Facebook Livestream on UNILAD Gaming, featuring celebrity guests and YouTube stars like TomSka, Ashens, and esports team FNATICS (with more to be announced) playing some of their favourite childhood games.

This Monument Valley t-shirt is also available to buy.

There will also be some retro-themed t-shirts available to buy, which have been specially designed by the developers of games like Halo 5, Fallout 4, World of Tanks, Monument Valley and Monster Legends. These t-shirts will be available to buy at £20 each until 3rd May, from the GameOn tee online store, with proceeds going to War Child UK. Nab some cool gear and support a worthy cause at the same time.

I've been addicted to gaming since my parents bought an Atari console way back in the 70's. I progressed to the iconic Speccy, Amiga, and all the Playstation platforms. Having seen games evolve from single pixel bat and ball, to HD constructed environments, gaming has changed much from my early years. Having defeated the rock hard R-Type on the Speccy, the biggest challenge I've faced so far is putting up with the hordes of American teens spouting abuse in the current generation of consoles, noob indeed!
