The Fall Guys ‘Battle of the Brands’ competition drew to a close yesterday with a staggering $1m join donation from Aim Lab, G2 Esports, Ninja, and Mr Beast.
It all started when developer Mediatonic challenged a number of brands which had been posting mockup Fall Guys skins to do their bit by donating to the UK charity Special Effect.
Whoever made the biggest donation would have their own skin immortalised in the game, while also helping out a charity that does some incredible work.

THE WINNERS ARE:@G2esports @Ninja @AimLab @MrBeastYT
With a combined donation of $1,000,000 for @SpecialEffect
Probably the spiciest team up since The Avengers??????https://t.co/Q2G3h9UyDh
Thanks to the winning donation being a group effort, the game will stay true to its word, by launching 4 brand new skins for all the parties involved. There’s no concrete date on when these will be released, but Mediatonic says it will now begin working with the winners to collaborate on each skin.
Raising $1 million for @SpecialEffect will have such an INCREDIBLE impact!— Fall Guys ? (@FallGuysGame) August 31, 2020
We'll now sort out the donations while our artists start to collab with the winners on their skins!
YES! We will include 4 costumes as a special thank you to the amazing people that made this possible ♥️
Special Effect took to Twitter to thank everyone who got involved with the competition, writing: “Your generosity will enable us to continue making gaming dreams come true for people with physical disabilities around the world!”
