About Games for Good
Our industry is often represented in a negative light, but our medium has the potential to be the most powerful in reaching the masses. As players become more socially conscious, we not only have to adapt, but have the opportunity to lead the way. We can help develop and support voices that stand for something.
Founded by Deborah Mensah-Bonsu, at dmb crew we are passionate about changing the narrative of our industry and unlocking its true potential through our flagship initiative Games for Good.
We specialise in using games for social impact and support clients in leveraging parts of their business for social good; through their company, products, or their community of players.
While so many industries are struggling during these strange times, we are fortunate to be part of one that is thriving. Let's empower our industry, its studios, and the more than 2 billion gamers on the planet, to become vehicles for change.
We would love to help you create, improve and steward your social impact strategy to connect more deeply with your staff, partners, players, and empower your communities.
