May of 2017 feels like a century ago, but it turns out it’s only been a brief eight months. In that time, the CheckPoint web series has gone from a crowdfunded dream to the nearest thing to reality. Yesterday, CheckPoint’s Dr. Jennifer Hazel announced that the series is launching on January 29th.
CheckPoint is an Australian non-profit that does the hard work of advocating for mental health in the video game industry, just like Take This (Australian Take This supporters will also know them as the wonderful people who powered the Take This AFK Room at PAX Aus in 2017). Last year, CheckPoint announced a web series exploring mental health in the video game industry, with direct input from creators who deal with mental health issues themselves.
Check out the trailer above, and be sure to subscribe to CheckPoint if you’d like to watch the series. We’re looking forward to seeing what our friends at CheckPoint have in store for all of us later this month.
