SpecialEffect Team Fortress pack campaign gains Steam


Last week, gaming charity SpecialEffect announced that they had items pending approval for the Team Fortress 2 store on Steam, the bundle being the brainchild of SEGA’s Director of Digital Distribution, James Schall.

The triple pack of a viewfinder, belt pack (with extra buttons), and a mini arcade cabinet will hopefully be available this summer, with 99% of the proceeds going towards the charity and their work helping people with disabilities play games. It’s fair to say support has been strong – yesterday SpecialEffect announced that the collection has already become the 9th most popular of all time, hopefully taking it a big step closer to supporting them.

However, in the meantime there is still a chance to add your support too – if you have a Steam account, you can see and rate up the pack here (or alternatively by going to the Team Fortress 2 workshop and searching for “special effect”, with the space).

Peter can be described as an old, hairy gamer, a survivor of the console wars of the 1990s, and a part-time MMO addict. He has an especial fondness for retro gaming and observing the progressions in long running gaming series. When scandalously not caught gaming, he can also be found reading comics and fantasy fiction, or practising terrible photography.
