Addressing recent events in the wider gaming community

The Breakout team feel it necessary and important to address recent events in the wider gaming community. This week, several reports of atrocious abuse have been made against Zak S, a notable game designer.

Breakout fully supports the survivors. As is in line with our core values of safety and inclusion, Zak never has been and never will be welcomed at our events. Breakout and its community will not support Zak nor his games at our convention.

We strive to help this community break out from the social constructs that allow abusive behaviour like Zak's to thrive and be swept under the rug. We reiterate our dedication to creating a safe space for gaming.
