Fire Hose offers free desk space to Boston devs looking to go indie


Fire Hose Games, the Slam Bolt Scrappers and Go Home Dinosaurs developer from Cambridge, MA, is offering free desk space to developers looking to make the indie transition. The hospitality was spurred by recent layoffs in the Boston area, most notably the Irrational Games shutdown yesterday.

So here's the deal, as laid out in Fire Hose's blog post: Accepted developers will get a desk, chair and can potentially use any spare equipment laying around the office. Access to the office will be available during posted office hours and Fire Hose will seek no financial compensation for the kindness. Interested parties need simply fire off an email to freedesks [at] firehosegames [dot] com to get started.

Fire Hose is currently in the process of setting up an indie game seed fund, but adds in its blog post that this free desk space agreement in no way guarantees a spot in the incubator program.
