From GB18: Three weeks to go!

It’s finally February! That means that GameBlast18 is just three weeks away! We want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who’s signed up so far – GameBlast18 is going to be awesome! Your fundraiser will be helping SpecialEffect bring the fun of video games to people like Harry.

Added your stream URL yet?

Our Top-Tip-You-Didn’t-Ask-For today is to add your stream URL to your fundraising page. We love to visit people’s streams during the GB18 weekend, so making sure the stream URL is included in your fundraising page is the best way for the SpecialEffect team to find your stream! Here’s a great example from the UoC Games Dev Society!

Personalise your fundraising page

While we’re nagging, have you personalised your fundraising page yet? It’s often the first port-of-call for friends and family who’re just learning about your GameBlast18 efforts. Here’s a great example from Pigeon Vision Entertainment – with personalised page banners and info of what to expect during their stream, including lots of links!
