There's been plenty of fan-rendered skins for Fall Guys over the past few games, from brands and fans alike. Mediatonic is taking advantage of this thirst for skins, and are running a charity drive, with the highest donation from a brand receiving their own in-game skin.
Mediatonic announced the initiative last night through the official Fall Guys Twitter account (which has been on fire in terms of audience engagement since the game launched, might I add). All brands had to do to enter the competition to reply to the announcement tweet with how much the brand would be willing to donate to the Special Effect charity.
If you're unaware, Special Effect is a UK-based gaming charity, supplying people with disabilities with the tools they need to play video games. Head over to the official Special Effect website if you're eager to find out more about the charity, which our EGX event in the UK has a history of partnerships with.
Previous leaders have included Warframe, some gaming personalities, and even somehow Tushy Bidet. For now though, it appears that esports club G2 Esports has the lead in the charity drive, pledging a grand total of $130,003 to Special Effect at the time of writing. Should they win the bid, the outfit just above will be put in Fall Guys under their name.
Fall Guys has been nothing short of a smash hit success for Mediatonic since it launched earlier this month. The game's servers might have taken a beating when over two million Steam players purchased Fall Guys in less than a week, on top of the game drawing huge crowds through launching on PS Plus, but it's still one of the most watched games on Twitch right now with well over 50,000 viewers at the time of writing.
