An incredible letter recently made its way to my desk. A woman in Alaska wrote to share a remarkable story, one that reaffirms the brain building (and in some ways even life-saving!) power of play and reminds us that the games we create can do powerful things.
Her letter gave me chills!This isn’t the first we’ve heard about our games, particularly Rush Hour, being used to treat patients with brain injuries. Over the years we have heard from many therapists who use our games to help patients rebuild cognitive and fine motor skills, and Rush Hour was recently featured in an NBC Nightly News segment on treating returning veterans with brain injuries. We are eager to explore how we can continue to create games that support the incredible work these doctors are doing!
