First look at The CheckPoint Series tackling mental health

Posted on January 16, 2018

After a very successful Kickstarter, the non-profit organization CheckPoint  has today released the first trailer for their upcoming webseries – The CheckPoint Series.

The CheckPoint Series is going to be 16 episodes designed to raise awareness for mental health issues, reduce stigma, and improve the well-being of people all over the world. Specifically, CheckPoint as an organisation has a real focus on video games and how they can be used in a positive manner when it comes to dealing with mental health.

Watch it right here:

“The trailer displays some of the show’s structure, high production values, animations and excerpts from interviews. The series includes high profile games industry veterans, including Ken Levine, Creator of the Bioshock series (Ghost Story Games); Josh Scherr, Co-Writer of Uncharted 4 and Uncharted Lost Legacy (Naughty Dog); Teddy Diefenbach, Creator of Hyper Light Drifter (Square Enix Montreal); Kelsey Gamble, Community Manager (Bethesda); Zer0Doxy, Content Creator, YouTube; Rae Johnston, Editor (Gizmodo) and TV Presenter (NITV) and Jess Hodgson, Community Manager; Ryan Roth, Games Audio Designer and Musician, and Matt Gilgenbach, Creator of Neverending Nightmares.” (From the official press release)

I can’t be more excited for this, and not just because they have such a fantastic name. Founder Dr. Jennifer Hazel was on our show last year talking all about the series and about CheckPoint’s mission.
