Games Industry Census  

Please if you haven't already, fill this census in as it really helps them know where the industry is and how it's doing. Lots of games companies have already filled it in.

What is the census?

The first UK Games Industry census was a landmark analysis of diversity in the industry. It provided the most authoritative profile of the demographic make-up of the industry's workforce. 

The census is a fully anonymous survey. It is quick and easy to participate in, taking less than ten minutes to complete, and every response helps us build a better picture of the industry. 

The link to the census is here. 

What's new this year? 

We've expanded the census to ask further questions in a couple of additional areas, with widened focus on working patterns and access needs. This will improve the scope of the data and give us a more nuanced and detailed picture of how the industry looks today. 

Why is the census important?  

Collecting this data and comparing it to figures from other sectors, national datasets and previous censuses has huge implications for tracking and improving Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) in the games sector.   

This helps us to understand true picture of EDI in the UK games industry, helping the entire industry see the areas where it can progress and opportunities to celebrate work done so far.  

Ndemic Creations

It's been exciting times at Ndemic Creations as after four years of development, multiple big content updates and a trip to the Afghanistan Embassy, Rebel Inc: Escalation has left Early Access! 

In addition, we released VS Multiplayer for Rebel Inc: Escalation! VS Multiplayer lets players take control of the Insurgency in their opponent’s Region to try and topple their government, while still trying to stabilise their own!

Next up is a series of Official Scenarios, which we are very excited to share as it's allowed the team to really get creative and use all the tools of the game to their maximum potential.

And finally, we've launched Plague Inc: The Cure on consoles, for the first time players, will be able to save the world, from the comfort of their living rooms!
