AskAboutGames.com, a website designed to educate parents and families about video games, is online once more.
The site has been relaunched by trade body UKIE to coincide with PEGI’s debut as a legally enforceable ratings system, which is due to occur on Monday, July 30th.
It will feature information on parent controls, age ratings and how families can ensure their children are playing video games safely.
The site will be edited by Andy Robertson of Family Gamer TV and Wired’s Geek Dad. It will support UKIE’s wider Control.Collaborate.Create campaign to raise awareness of PEGI.
"We’re really pleased to have relaunched the askaboutgames website as a place where everyone, especially parents and carers of children can find out more about how to get the best out of game playing," said UKIE CEO Dr Jo Twist.
"Games are a great way for families to get together and playing them can have so many benefits. But we know that parents have questions about what types of games their children should be playing, understanding how to have the conversation with their children about certain content, and how they should be enjoying games – askaboutgames.com gives them the answers."
