If you donate £6/€7/$7.5 or more in a single donation, you’ll be eligible for this fantastic, unique SpecialEffect Sidewinder paint job AND decal!

    (Some pictures of these items can be seen on the Planet Coaster thread HERE)

    Dine with the Developers – Planet Coaster: Dine with the developers of Planet Coaster. We’re holding an evening meal with five of Planet Coaster’s best known developers who will be joining you. The date of the event is planned for Friday January 27, 2017 from 7PM GMT – 10PM GMT and we are looking for FIVE lucky bidders to come and join us! All the food and drink will be on us but you’ll need to make your way to a location in central Cambridge; all travel and other expenses for the event will be paid for by the winning bidders.

    Signed Scenery: Some of you will remember Marc Cox from the Planet Coaster livestream. Now we all know that scenery is important in Planet Coaster but Marc takes this to a new level, covering his entire desk in home-made scenery. We’re giving away a special piece of scenery from his collection signed by the development team. It really is the blocks that helped build Planet Coaster.

    Bespoke Hand Drawn Planet Coaster Photo Frames: You might not know but our much loved Community Manager and Streamer extraordinaire, Bo de Vries, is also incredibly talented in calligraphy! She’s creating three custom Planet Coaster frames with hand-drawn calligraphy on it for you to enjoy! By bidding on this item you are bidding on one of these delightful frames; there will be three frames to be won.

    Planet Coaster cushion set: At the Planet Coaster launch event we had so many comments of people who wanted the Planet Coaster cushions on the set. So we’ve made a beautiful bespoke set of three cushions which will be available to bid on as one set. Please note you are bidding on one set of three Planet Coaster cushions.

    Signed Artwork from the Launch event: Another launch event special is a set of two Planet Coaster wall arts, signed by the team. There are some minor scratches to the set so buyers take note. These make a beautiful decoration for anyone who appreciates stunning artwork and Planet Coaster!

    Once again, we want to take this moment to thank you, our amazing community for helping and supporting Elite Dangerous and Planet Coaster over the past year. You breathe life into the games and are at the very heart of everything we do. We hope you can join us and take part in what promises to be a fantastic event!

    I wonder if that means an announcement regarding the PS4 version. I don't think you guys gave away a PS4 last year.

    I hope you guys have something to say about 2.3 or even later than that. 24h is a long time, so I'm guessing you guys have some cool stuff to announce or show off.

    No gaming company should miss that Christmas Sale train hype

    It's a charity that designs special gamepads and other tools to allow disabled kids (and adults) to play games.

    You wake up after an accident. You can’t move and you can’t speak. That’s when the loan and support of eye-controlled technology through our StarGaze project can provide help as quickly as possible. It’s technology that can initially provide emergency communication, but can also lead to independence in education, work and leisure.

    VERY cool ... http://www.specialeffect.org.uk/
