Help & Advice
At Fusebox, we believe that customer support doesn’t end with our games.
Because we know that the issues of love, sex, and mental health can prove challenging for everyone at different times in life, we’ve compiled a list of organisations that can provide help, support, and resources, so we can be sure that our games are fun for everyone - offering an escape from the real world but never pretending it doesn’t exist.
If it’s not just a game anymore, these organisations can help.
