Get ready for 24 hours of straight gaming to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.
Bottomline Gaming is a community of serious gamers founded in January 2011. Their members are getting ready to play games like World of Warcraft, Guild Wars 2, Rift, and Planetside 2 – all for 24 straight hours. They call the event “GamePocalypse.”
The goal for GamePocalypse 2013 is to raise $50,000 dollars to support US troops through the Wounded Warrior Project. WWP serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families. As of 11:50pm CT before the event, $2,740 of the $50,000 has already been raised.
The stream will be of multiple players, across all the games being played, and will be hosted for the entire 24-hour event. The broadcast will highlight different players, views, and perspectives of the events as well as general gameplay. The broadcast will switch between multiple streamers much like a sports broadcast.
Here is a brief video explaining the event, and the soldiers who benefit from it:
