It’s coming, it’s coming, IT’S COMING! The 4th U-Pick Video Game Marathon for Charity (“UPickVG IV” for short) will be broadcast live on the interwebs June 12th-14th, 2015.
During the 48-hour-long continuous livestream, we’ll play the video games you pick to raise money for charity: water, to bring clean water access to people who need it in rural Uganda.
Starting the evening of June 12th and going for the next 48 straight hours, we’ll play the games you choose when you make a donation to our charity fundraiser. We’ll switch games each hour (on the hour), as determined by the Wheel of Destiny that we spin – a wheel of all the top games that have received donations.
Got ideas for what games should be on the list? GOOD. You can request games for UPickVG IV right now on our Request Games page. The sky’s the limit: name any game you can think of that you would pay money (to charity) to see played!
We’ll be taking suggestions for UPickVG IV on the Request Games page up until May 1st. At that point, the “Voting Period” begins, and we’ll throw everything that’s been suggested into a big ol’ internet poll – and you’ll be able to vote for your favorites! (Don’t worry, you’ll be able to vote for more than one game, and we’ll let you vote more than once, too.)
Once the votes are in, we’ll put together the ultimate list of video games available for UPickVG IV – and we’ll open the donation floodgates so that you can get the games of your choice up on that Wheel of Destiny. [Editor’s note: The votes are in and that list of available games is up – you can donate now!]
