Fire Hose Games offers free work space to unemployed devs going indie

In the wake of Boston-based Irrational Games' closure, indie studio Fire Hose Games offers free desk space in its Cambridge, MA office to unemployed developers in the area who are looking to go indie.
Fire Hose Games announced today that it will offer free desk space in its Cambridge, MA office to any unemployed developers in the area who are looking to go indie. The gesture was inspired by the recent announcement that Boston-based Irrational Games is shutting down. "We can’t sit by and watch all this potential development talent evaporate, especially considering our mission to help other indie devs," reads the announcement published on the Fire Hose Games blog. "So we’re going to do what we can to help!" To that end, the studio invites unemployed developers in the area to apply via email and explain what project they're looking to work on and why they'd like to do so at the Fire Hose Games office, which the studio describes as an "awesome work environment where you can focus and get your shit done." Those accepted will have free access to a spare desk in the Fire Hose Games office during the workweek, as well as potential access to spare hardware the studio isn't currently using. It's worth pointing out that Fire Hose Games has been a vocal proponent of independent development in the past, and is currently developing a sort of funding/mentorship program for indie developers in the Boston area.
