📺 LIVE NOW: Join the Eastward: Octopia charity livestream with Lomadiah!

#PlayforPlates supporting FoodCycle; featuring giveaways, donation rewards, and a very special Eastward diorama auction!


Hey, everyone! 👋

Over on Twitch RIGHT NOW we’re running a charity livestream for ‘Eastward: Octopia’, supporting FoodCycle 🧡 On April 18th at 14:00-19:00 BST time, we’re teaming up with the amazing Hannah Rutherford, aka Lomadiah, on her Twitch channel for the “Play for Plates” fundraiser! Check out the Tiltify fundraising page to get involved.

What’s ‘Play for Plates’?
With Eastward’s new DLC seeing John and Sam embracing a peaceful new life in the countryside, what better timing than to team-up to raise funds for the fight against food waste and food poverty.

Hannah ‘Lomadiah’ Rutherford, who you might also know for her fantastic fundraising work, is kindly working with us to host the charity livestream to benefit FoodCycle, a remarkable organisation that has been spreading warmth and nourishment in the UK since 2009.

FoodCycle’s story is about community, compassion, and care. They take surplus food and turn it into hearty meals for those who need it most by creating spaces where people can come together, share a meal, and feel a sense of belonging. It’s a recipe for change, and we’re proud to be a part of it. 🌱🥕

And we couldn’t be more proud to do that with the perfect partner: Hannah ‘Lomadiah’ Rutherford, an amazing content creator, charity consultant, and Twitch partner actively involved with several charity organizations, such as SpecialEffect, Safe in Our World, and Cosmic Hearts. Her passion and dedication to supporting non-profit organizations are truly inspiring, and her community is equally committed to these causes. We couldn’t have asked for a better match to join us in this initiative! 

🏆 Donations, Rewards and Giveaways:
Throughout Hannah’s livestream, we’ll be giving away 20 Eastward and Eastward: Octopia Steam Keys in the chat

We will also have a long list of rewards for different tiers of donations. From exclusive merch to one-of-a-kind treasures, there’s something special for everyone who wants to make a difference. Once you donate to one of these tiers, you’ll have a chance to win one of the listed rewards:

The piece was crafted by Joshua Smith, a renowned miniature artist based in Australia who is celebrated for his mesmerizing dioramas.

Joshua recreated each detail masterfully, bringing Pixpil beautiful pixel art to life.
