One Special Game is always one of the highlights of the whole #OneSpecialDay event, but this year, it’s been pushed to another level. We can’t thank Stephen Hey, Hollie Pattison and the team at Bastion enough for all their hard work in making the event so successful and spreading awareness of the charity so innovatively. Huge thanks as well to all the judges who generously gave their talents and time, to EA, Mediatonic and Revolution for allowing us to feature their titles, to our generous One Special Game partners and sponsors, and of course to everyone who entered.”
