Join us as we take on 50-days of gaming followed by a 24-hour stream for SpecialEffect. This amazing UK-based charity puts fun and inclusion back into the lives of those with physical disabilities by helping them to play video games, through assessment and equipment modification.
Donations received during the event go directly to SpecialEffect and help them continue their wonderful work. Watch us on our Twitch channel, host us, tweet about the charity – we really appreciate all your support.
50-day challenge: from 05 January 2020
We’ve supported SpecialEffect here at Later Levels since 2013 and take part in their GameBlast event every year. In the past we’ve completed extended streaming marathons but for 2020 we want to go even bigger: we’re aiming to play video games for at least an hour a day for 50-days straight.
Adult responsibilities make this challenge far harder than it initially seems and it’s going to take plenty of organisation and coordination – not to mention a ton of batteries for our controllers. Our schedule can be found opposite and you’ll be able to catch us live on Twitch usually in the evenings, so please do stop by and say hello!
24-hour stream: from 22 February 2020
It wouldn’t be GameBlast without a streaming marathon, and so we’re ending our 50-day challenge with a 24-hour session. Hundreds of other gamers all over the UK will be doing the same from 21-23 February 2020 to raise as much funding and awareness for SpecialEffect as possible.
We’ll be live on Twitch for the entire marathon with plenty of video games and coffee – and our cat Zelda will probably make an appearance too. We’d love to hear your suggestions for the titles we should play for each of the categories opposite so please do get in touch with your ideas. And if you fancy joining us for a game or two, you’d be more than welcome!
