24hr Charity Game Marathon 2015 - 24 years of video games in 24hrs

Event date: 30th May 2015

Robert Sefton is raising money for OLD SWAN YOUTH CLUB

My story

So it's that time of year again, a time where geekyness wins the war against sanity. I'm talking of course about our annual charity gaming marathon for the volunteer-led Old Swan Youth Club in Liverpool. I will again be playing non-stop for 24 hours from 7pm on Saturday 30th May until 7pm Sunday 31st. You can as usual sponsor me for doing this, it is by no means as easy as it sounds let me tell you! But the real fun of the event is with those who get involved, so as before I will once again be playing a different person each hour.

This year we thought we would do things a little different.

Instead of playing just one game for 24 hours, I will be playing 24 different games which were made over the course 24 years. The first game is on Atari 2600, made in 1976 and the last is on Sega Dreamcast, made in the year 2000. It does seem like a good fit and we will be pushing the time travel theme with our coverage of the event exploring different aspects of each year, showing us moving rapidly (or not so rapidly to me) through the years as we go.

So as usual each place costs a £10 donation which is paid directly to our Everyclick fundraising page here.

We have a full list of the schedule so it's as simple as picking the time slot featuring the game/system you fancy playing with me, and booking that in. You can do that either by emailing us at sweetshoparcade@live.co.uk , by commenting on this article, or the best way is by joining our facebook event here and posting your request there.

The whole £10 goes towards our donation to this great cause, and in addition we also have a great retro goody pack for each player who gets involved so please do so!

So here's the long list of games and times, if your favourite is at an ungodly hour then I apologise, but what better way to show your commitment to the cause!

7pm - Breakout (Atari 2600)

8pm - Super Mario Bros. (Nintendo NES)
