Game Devs For Fireys will run from 14th Jan 2020 to the 22nd Jan 2020. It’ll raise money to help the Australian firefighters and wildlife. The fires are still raging.
Follow the hashtag #GameDevsforFireys to follow the action.
Game Developers will be offering up unique items, services or opportunities which they are willing to donate. Respond to those tweets with the #GameDevsforFireys and an Australian dollar amount (one higher than the most recent bid) to take the lead in the auction.
The project is inspired (and blessed by) Authors for Fireys who got their first and run a successful project.
There’s already a FAQ on the barebones Game Dev site but there’s still a lot of details to fill in. It’s one of those things when your own social media instinct will need to be used. If you see plenty of action on the hashtag, it all positive and (ideally) names you trust and recognise, then it’s all going well.
Crucially, the site isn’t collecting money from you. The donations page points to recognised charities and causes.
