Now that we’ve been doing our weekly Friday Twitch stream for over a year, we’re excited to finally participate in Extra Life this fall. For those who don’t know, Extra Life is a charity where gamers raise money for Childrens Miracle Network hospitals by doing what they do best: playing a crapton of games.

We’ll by participating with an extra-long not-quite-24-hour-but-still-pretty-long Twitch stream on Friday, November 13. Spooooooky. Instead of streaming from 2PM-3PM we’ll be streaming from 9AM until at least 2AM.

Stay tuned to this page and follow @jackboxgames on twitter for the latest updates.

FAQ

How Can I Help?

Lots of ways! The easiest way is by donating money to our Extra Life Team. You can also join our team and help raise money by doing your own fundraising streams. We will have some prizes for the biggest non-Jackbox fundraiser on our team. Otherwise, just spread the word by sharing this post on social media. And finally, watch our stream: http://twitch.tv/jackboxgames.

Why Aren’t You Streaming on November 7th Like Everyone Else

Because we’re not everyone else! Also, we thought we’d spread out a little bit. Also, November 7th isn’t Friday the 13th.

YES! We will be giving away codes — not just for our games, but we’ve reached out to our game dev friends and they’ve donated a bunch of other great games for us to give away too. There’s some great stuff, but you’ll need to tune in to get it. Giveaways include:

And we’re still collecting new games to give away.

Are You Only Going To Play Your Games?

Would that be so bad? But no, we won’t. We’ll definitely be playing lots of our games but we’ll be playing other games too. Have suggestions for what we should do? Tweet them to @jackboxgames with the hashtag #ExtraLife
