Gameblast 15 Supports SpecialEffect With Weekend Gaming Marathon

/ 3 years ago


Over 50 companies from the gaming industry are working together this weekend to do a 48 hour gaming marathon in aid of Special Effect – a company who transform the lives of gamers with disabilities by supporting them with hardware and software that has been specially tailored to suit their needs. I don’t think anything I can say will do a better job explaining who they are than this video.

The kickoff event is a global RuneScape 24 hour event by Jagex. Last year, this made over £50,000 for SpecialEffect which is amazing, hopefully they will be able to beat that this year with your help. Their stream starts at 12pm GMT on Friday at
