KingsIsle is happy to announce we will once again be participating in the Extra Life charity gaming marathon. What’s so great about Extra Life? Their site explains why this is a great cause, and we agree. What could be better than gaming while helping raise funds for your local hospitals? If you’re worried about 24 hours of gaming, please remember that you don’t have to play for 24 hours straight.
From the Extra Life FAQ: “Keep in mind that you don’t have to participate for 24 hours straight! Extra Lifers are heroes but they’re still human! Don’t forget meals, bathroom breaks, and to take plenty of opportunities to stretch. If you’re feeling tired, put your game down and go take a nap! Make sure you get plenty of sleep in the week leading up to your marathon. Click here to read up on more of our safety tips.” In short, participate on game day, but (as they say) “do it your way!” (You can even spread those 24 hours out over a few days if you’d like.)

Visit our team page, click on “Join Our Team” to sign up for Extra Life as a member of our team, committing to play games for 24 hours and raise donations to help us meet our team goal. When you join the Team, you also become eligible to win some great prizes from KingsIsle based on the amount you raise. (See graphic to the right.)
Did you say Prizes?
Prizes are based on the amount of money raised by you. You’ll only ever win one prize. The first tier is the Marleybone Car Mount, the second tier is 10,000 crowns, and the third tier is the mystery bundle. You won’t receive every gift listed . . . only the gift for the tier you make it to.
Donations received after November 4th are still appreciated but not eligible for prizes.
If you’re not interested in winning prizes and would just like to donate. There are a lot of team members on our team that would appreciate the support, but donating directly this way will not earn prizes. (But you’ll get the satisfaction of knowing you helped someone else earn their prize.)
If you have any questions specifically about the KingsIsle Extra Life team, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to an amazing day of gaming for a great cause and thank everyone for their support!
