The idea for OneBigGame is based on the belief that the videogames industry, one of the largest entertainment industries in the world, with its vast creative resources and through the tremendous impact it has on popular youth culture, is perfectly placed to raise funds for charity as well as raise awareness among youth audiences for the causes it supports.
The new board of directors is supported by the existing advisory board, which includes industry executive Chris Deering, Mark Cerny of Cerny Games; David Perry of GameConsultants.com and GameInvestors.com, and Eidos CTO Julien Merceron.
Said de Ronde, "I am delighted to be joined by a group of esteemed professionals with such diverse industry experience. Establishing our board of directors to work side-by-side our equally senior advisory board marks the completion of our organizational structure and ensures that we can confidently look forward to our launch later this year.”
