We're Playing Video Games for 25 Hours - For The Kids!

ThisSaturday, observe the Citizens of Natstown team fight sleep and each other for the good of kids everywhere.

It's that time again, people! Remember last year when TJ played 24 hours of games, while fitting in an end of the season podcast, for the kids? Well he decided to get a group together and do it again for even longer! On to the details!

What?

We're playing video games to raise money for charity! Specifically, the Children’s National Medical Center located in Washington, DC. TJ and Matt are going to do a 25 hour stream from his house!

When?

8am (Eastern) Saturday, Nov 2 - 8am Sunday, Nov 3

How do I donate?

Go here! Anything you can give would be greatly appreciated! It's for the kids!

How do I watch?

The official Citizens of Natstown stream will be on the home page with a chat available so YOU can give input on what we should play next. We’ll also put out links to Twitch streams anytime we’re playing PC games.

What will you be playing, specifically?

The one thing I know will take up a few hours is a horror game called Outlast. If you’d like to several grown men jump and squeal like little girls, THIS will be the time to watch. Aside from that this will pretty much be a video game potluck. Everybody will bring something (I happen to know Matt has a number N64 games downloaded that should be a blast).

Will this stream be archived on Citizens of Natstown?

The Hangout with chat will definitely be archived on the site. I hope to get the Twitch streams embedded as well, but I’m not 100% on how that works. Worst case scenario is that they’ll be archived on Twitch and I’ll put links to those in the main Extra Life post.

Can I stream my own games and receive donations?

Sure! That's where the Citizens of Natstown Extra Life team comes in. Just sign up for an account on Extra Life, tie that account to the team "Citizens of Natstown," and start streaming! Let us know if you’re streaming and we’ll put your links in the Extra Life post as well! All donations you receive will go to the hospital of your choice, and the amount you get will be tallied on our team's total. Last year, TJ  raised $211 by himself, but we’ve been hard at work, and the team has already brought in $575! AND WE HAVEN'T EVEN STARTED!

So join us, won't you?
