[00:04] BEHIND THE SCENES
[00:09] This week, Behind The Scenes brings you details of a very special weekend of gaming as we introduce GameBlast.
[00:17] GameBlast is a 24-hour gaming marathon to raise money for a charity we care a lot about, Special Effect.
[00:23] Special Effect are a charity who enable people with disabilities to play video games, something we all take for granted.
[00:28] By doing the marathon you will be able to help us to help hundreds of people with severe disabilities
[00:34] to get the same kind of fun, friendship, inclusion, motivation and excitement that you get through video games.
[00:43] We've already helped out Special Effect in the past with the Well of Good Will promotion
[00:47] and this time we were really keen to get involved with their GameBlast initiative.
[00:50] GameBlast will be running from the 21st till the 23rd of February.
[00:54] You'll see gamers from all over the world raising money for Special Effect by playing their favourite games for 24 hours straight.
[00:59] So we're going to be live streaming a 24 hour gaming marathon.
[01:03] During the event a group of Jmods and players will play RuneScape nonstop for 24 hours which marks our longest ever official live stream.
[01:09] There'll be in-game challenges, activities and events as well as a host of out of game challenges too.
[01:14] Players can get involved too by taking part in our double drops or double XP weekend,
[01:19] which they can vote for with our Power To the Players scheme.
[01:21] We're currently inviting some of our most passionate players to Jagex, sorting out all the technical stuff
[01:26] so it runs as smoothly as possible and making sure the stream itself is full of great content for you to enjoy.
[01:30] So this GameBlast aside from the XP waste of talking to camera and talking to people I'm going to be trying to get all my levels up
[01:36] and I'm going to be giving a pound to charity for every level I go up.
[01:39] I'm probably going to go for 6 hours at each of the god wars for the whole 24 hours
[01:43] although it's double XP so you might see me in Dungeoneering and a bit of Divination.
[01:46] The live stream is going to be great. It's going to be all about getting Jmods involved,
[01:49] getting players involved, completing challenges and trying to persuade you to part with your money.
[01:54] Players can donate in a couple of ways firstly we're reopening the Well of Goodwill
[01:58] so you can use your in-game wealth and items to donate to the charity
[02:01] or if you prefer, you can give directly by going to our Just Giving page which we've set up specifically for the event.
[02:07] Full details of the live stream can be found on the RuneScape home page as well as our Facebook and Twitter pages.
[02:11] You can also check out the Special Effect website where you can find out more about the charity involved.
[02:17] If you have a question about this or any RuneScape video, ping us an email to [email protected] and let us know.
