Fall Guys Charity Skin Contest Winning Bid

There’s a new battle royale in town, Fall Guys. You may have heard of it. Fall Guys has been shattering player and viewership records, and brands to big-name players have been inundating the Fall Guys Twitter account with designs of their own in-game skins. So, Developer Mediatonic decided to capitalize on its wave of popularity and success and hosted a Fall Guys charity skin contest for SpecialEffect.

On August 18, the battle of the brands got underway. The coveted prize was a Fall Guys costume covered in the top donator’s branding. Cooler Master was the first serious bid with €212. Following on from that, loads of big brands, celebrities, and even other games placed their bids. Fast forward to the end of the bidding war and the donation climbed up to an incredible $1 million. The winning bid, which arrived in the last minute of the contest, was a team effort from Ninja, MrBeast, G2 Esports, and Aim Lab.
