Celebrating our latest award with a free PSVR game giveaway to help keep families entertained!

Updated: Jun 19, 2020

XR Games is very excited to receive a Northern Tech Award today from GP Bullhound in the 'Top 15 Northern Stars' category. This means we're "one of the most promising and exciting tech companies in the North of England and Scotland" - GP Bullhound.

To help celebrate this award we're giving away 500x free copies of our Angry Birds Under Pressure VR game for the PlayStation VR console.

Since families are still facing varying degrees of lockdown measures across the world, we'd like to do our bit to help. And if your kids are like mine, they'll start to suffer from 'cabin fever' if they spend more than 1x day cooped up at home! They’re used to a hectic schedule of school, clubs, extra-curricular activities on weekends, as well as visits to grandparents, family, and friends. With all this thrown out of the window for the foreseeable future, it will inevitably lead to some fraught and tense family moments at home.

However, we believe life is best spent laughing and having fun with your family (and friends when we’re coronavirus free). And through an act of kindness XR Games would like to help families do this. How you might think? Well, we’d like to give away 500x free copies of Angry Birds Under Pressure VR. Our PlayStation exclusive game which has received critical reviews and accolades for making families laugh and have fun.

Families (and friends) having fun together was my main objective with this game. Reason being I was at home and noted my wife playing Candy Crush on her iPhone, my eldest daughter playing Fortnite on her Nintendo Switch and my youngest daughter watching YouTube Kids on her iPad, while I’m doing work emails on my iPhone.

And I thought to myself – technology is contributing to people becoming isolated from one another, even when they’re in the same room. In other words, people are ‘alone-together’. This is nuts. And that’s where my vision for XR Games was born – I want to create a future where families and friends relish the time they spend together, laughing and having fun as part of a shared experience, whether that’s in the same room or connected online.

Also, it’s a co-operative game meaning all the players work towards the same goal. Reason being I find games that pit folks against each other means the winner is happy and the loser is sad. Instead, XR Games exists to make fun experiences that bring people together.

I hope you request a free copy and are able to share some laughs with your loved ones.

My very best,


Founder + CEO, XR Games
