Extra Life 2013

We’re excited to announce that Gamer Escape will be participating in this year’s Extra Life!

For those unfamiliar with it, extra life is an event that aids the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Gamers help by participating in a 25 hour gaming marathon and rallying their friends and family to sponsor their play.

This year, we’ll be raising money for the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital At Maine Medical Center- whose network of hospitals helped to treat our very own Doctor Mog when he was diagnosed with sinus cancer at 15.

Right now, both Doctor Mog and Fusionx are planning to stream their gaming on November 2nd. We’ve set up a special page for the event that you can view here where  you’ll be able to watch both of them playing, as well as view our progress towards our goal of $2,000.

Additionally, we’re going to be offering up prizes for those of us who help reach our goal! We’re still getting a final tally for the number of giveaways we can do, but it will go something like this- When you make an extra life contribution to Gamer Escape (the user not the team) you can elect to have your e-mail address shown. At certain points throughout our stream, we’ll take those e-mails and randomly select a winner. Among the items we’ll be giving away are various items from E3 in addition to some Final Fantasy XIV swag from PAX! Another option for those wishing to participate in Extra Life themselves is to make your own account and join the Gamer Escape team. Those that do this, and help progress us towards our goal will be entered into a separate giveaway for an XL “I Beat Titan” shirt from the FFXIV event at PAX. Those that join the Gamer Escape team and raise money are eligible for both giveaways! As a special bonus, if the chosen winner is also a Gamer Escape Supporter, they’ll be awarded an additional prize!

We hope you’ll consider being a part of this with us this year and look forward to seeing you on November 2nd!
