Game devs help raise nearly $400k during One Special Day charity event

There’s some nice news out of the U.K. this week, as Oxfordshire-based charity organization SpecialEffect announced today that it has raised over £300k (~$392k USD) to fund its charitable work during its recent One Special Day fundraising event.

This is a big deal because SpecialEffect’s mission in life is to help people with disabilities play and enjoy video games. 

To that end, the One Special Day (which was, incidentally, September 29th) fundraising effort was supported by studios and companies across the game industry, encompassing everyone from 505 Games to Double Fine to Unity to Zynga. 

SpecialEffect had set a fundraising target of £100k, and with that thoroughly surpassed it has announced that the next One Special Day will take place next year on the 28th of September.

Devs curious to learn more about SpecialEffect’s efforts and how to support them can do so via the organization’s website.
