This may just be the most adorable and wholesome thing you’ll read all week. The insanely popular (and insanely bonkers) battle royale Fall Guys triggered a massive bidding war between other companies that has now rocketed to $325,000 with over a week to go.
The studio that promises to donate the most money to Special Effect, a charity that helps gamers with disabilities, will get a skin put on one of Fall Guys’ fall guys in the game. Obviously, having your company’s logo slapped on this year’s hottest game is a huge win, so everyone’s shown up to play. Warframe even tried its hand at bidding early on:

Meanwhile, developer Mediatonic warned that any promises or links to a mobile version of the game is a “scam,” as the game is only out on PC and PS4. Fall Guys’ publisher, Devolver Digital, also is taking some heat after accidentally cancelling legitimate game keys while going after scammers.
“We made a mistake which resulted in the cancellation of legitimate keys purchased by our community and we apologize unreservedly for our unfortunate error,” the company said.
