Frontier's Christmas Livestream!

While many of us were winding down ready for Christmas on 17/18 December, our friends at Frontier Developments were galvanising their Elite:Dangerous, Planet Coaster and Jurassic World communities into a frenzy of generosity to help SpecialEffect get more disabled gamers playing along with the rest of us.

Thousands of Frontier’s ruthless space commanders and theme park magnates tuned in to the 24-hour livestream on Twitch to watch Ed, Chante, Will and the Stream Team engage, entertain and educate us throughout what has become a highlight of the SpecialEffect calendar. And the team certainly packed a lot in… chat, laughter, competitions, eating weird stuff and an unforgettable attempt by Will to break the world record for dabbing.

And, after all the activity and festive merriment, Frontier and their amazing communities raised a whopping £44,500 for the work of SpecialEffect. Vital income that will help us get more disabled people experiencing the joy and inclusion of video games over the coming months.

A huge thank you to SpecialEffect VP, David Braben, the wonderful team at Frontier Developments and their awesome communities for another fantastic 24 hours of entertainment and unbridled generosity!
