Our Partner

Child’s Play seeks to improve the lives of children in pediatric hospitals and other child welfare facilities through the kindness and generosity of the video game community and the power of play. They reach 169 hospitals and shelters internationally.

Problem

Child’s Play currently has an online pdf guide that categorizes recommended games by ailment, age, and device. This guide is updated around once a year with the newest EEDAR reports that they receive. The current PDF is static which requires manual searching, making it hard to update. Hospitals’ wifi usage can be limited or slow.

Solution

We worked with Child's Play to build a mobile-friendly progressive web app that allows a user to search for a game for a child to play based on their characteristics/gaming system. The site stores its data offline if it is added to a phone or tablet's homescreen and thus works with little to no wifi. Child's Play would also easily update games and matches to reflect the latest research.
