A helping hand to developers now banned from entering the country.

Indie publisher Devolver Digital is reaching out a helping hand to developers affected by President Trump’s recent immigration ban on seven Muslim-dominant countries.

For developers who have had to cancel their plans to present their games at Game Developers Conference later this month, Devolver is offering to demo their games for them, going as far to offer HTC Vive setups if needed.

“The location, formally named ‘Galvanize’ but now dubbed the ‘Devolver Underground’ during GDC, is located in the basement level of 44 Tehama Street, San Francisco, CA 94105 and is open to press and attendees during the conference Monday, February 27 through Wednesday, March 1 , from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.,” says the post.

Developers interested need only get in contact with the publisher using the email at the bottom of the post. Due to limited space, “developers that were set to travel to GDC and were forced to cancel their plans due to the immigration ban” will receive priority when signing up. Trump’s ban on the seven countries (Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen) are set to expire after 90 days.
