Games for Change, a global advocate for the development of serious game applications, announced the formation of a new consulting and producing services group offering assistance to developers of socially impactful games.
Games for Change's consulting group provides orientation services for individual developers and organizations wishing to enter the serious games space, and conducts workshops to review game concepts and designs.
The group additionally offers a range of executive producing services, serving as a client agent in project supervision and management.

"With Asi on board, Games for Change is now in a position to fulfill the many requests we receive from organizations for help guiding individual game projects toward realizing their full potential," said Alex Quinn, Executive Director of Games for Change. "These expanded services further our mission to serve and lead the field of social impact games."
Games for Change will announce its first clients at the 7th annual Games for Change Festival, to be held from May 24th through 27th at Parsons The New School of Design in New York City.
