I wanted to write to our community to update you all about a significant event for ImpactGames.
We have recently sold our award-winning PeaceMaker and Play the News platforms to Hybrid Learning Systems. They have also taken over the ImpactGames brand so that our products could enjoy a seamless transition into their company.
This is a bitter-sweet moment for us as a company as we were not able to maintain the necessary resources to see our vision through. However, on the positive side we believe we created products with meaning and value that found a good home for their future.
Hybrid Learning Systems has both the resources to carry on where we left off and new skills that will take them beyond. They share our vision and mission for the possibilities that our work represents and are committed to taking them to new places.
While ImpactGames in its current form is not moving on, as many of you know our co-founder Asi Burak has since become the Co-President of Games4Change, I am happy to announce that I have accepted a position with Hybrid Learning Systems.

And with that I would like to introduce to you Kris Rockwell CEO of Hybrid Learning Systems who wanted to add a few words to this post. I am sure you will be seeing more from him in the future.
Kris Rockwell’s words:
“The acquisition of the ImpactGames assets was unexpected but very welcome. Peacemaker alone is an important game covering a very delicate issue and both Eric and Asi have created an amazing work that more that speaks for itself.
Undoubtedly we have some very big shoes to fill. It is our intention to continue to grow the Peacemaker platform and continue to support its existing user base. We are very honored and excited to be a part of this process.
We are very pleased that Eric has agreed to join us as Chief Visionary Officer of ImpactGames. His vision, experience and remarkable talent will help us continue to grow and keep on the path that he has set with his work.
I am very pleased to be working with Eric and look forward to growing ImpactGames while continuing to keep it on the path of socially responsible gaming. It’s very exciting to keep such an important effort in the Pittsburgh area and I look forward to talking with the existing user community over the next few months.”
