April 30. How Games can help in a time of social isolation

During COVID-19, many people stay home, and obviously, play more games. As one of the webinar experts, Agnieszka Mulak said, gamers were the most prepared type of people for self-isolation.

This virtual event discussed what has changed in the gaming industry during the cancellation of major events? Do people play different games? We talked about the social and cultural aspects of computer games, facts, and tips about global games.

The webinar hosts, who are games, developers, researchers, but also active practicing players, provided recommendations on navigating games during the pandemic.
