Over 30 mobile game developers pledge 100% of UK revenues generated on September 29th to SpecialEffect

Over 30 mobile developers will be donating 100% of their revenues generated in the UK on September 29th in aid of SpecialEffect's One Special Day event.

The event sees a number of charity drives across the UK occur on one day to raise as much money as possible for the charity. Special Effect helps disabled gamers continue playing games by providing specialist equipment tailored to their specific needs.

Developers offering up their revenues for the day include Rovio, EA, Supercell, Zynga, Glu, Jam City, and ZeptoLab. Nordeus, Space Ape Games, Futureplay, Seriously, and more are also chipping in – a full list of partners can be found on the One Special Day website.

Phenomenal

Dr Mick Donegan, CEO and founder of SpecialEffect, described the mobile games industry's support "nothing short of phenomenal."

"We had great fun working together with the team at ‘Seriously' to reach out to mobile developers worldwide, and the level of support we’re receiving from the industry at large is simply incredible. The whole community have our heartfelt thanks for the tremendous generosity they have shown us," he added.

Companies interested in helping out during One Special Day can find out more about the event on its website. Donations can also be made directly to SpecialEffect via a JustGiving page.
