A MAN from Darfield is hoping to create a community of gamers by getting people out of their rooms and back playing together.

Josh Slack has plans to open a console gaming centre in Barnsley under the name GAMMA - for people of all ages and interests.

He said: "The first step is running a full weekend fundraising gaming event which will give everyone an idea of what's to come.

"GAMMA has always been about bringing social gaming back to life and what better way to kick things off then a full weekend of play time?"

The event will be held at the Hotspot Lounge between 10am and 11pm on Saturday, September 5 and between 10am and 6pm on Sunday, September 6.
