In just ONE SHORT WEEK a group of dedicated and passionate gamers, streamers, cosplayers, and actors are going to be putting on an OUT OF THIS WORLD show for charity.
From 8PM EDT to 12 (unless donations push us to keep playing- which we hope!) Ratchet and Clank will be streaming the new game Ratchet & Clank LIVE for Child’s Play Charities, bringing toys, games, books, and other items to kids in hospitals and long term care. We might have some (okay, okay, we WILL have plenty!) of surprise guests, game challenges, and raffle prizes of both official merch and handmade art pieces celebrating the past fourteen years of the game.
So Galactic Ranger, what can YOU do?
Can’t make it streaming night but still want to toss a prize in the pool? Great! You can email our resident Solana historian, Sara Winters at firstname.lastname@example.org and chat it up. We’re accepting handmade Ratchet inspired art, official merchandise, or money towards purchasing prizes for the stream. Donate something, and Ratchet will be sure to give you a shout out during the show.
Spread this info out wherever you can- Twitter, Reddit, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, carrier pigeon, infobot… and while we strongly discourage using Qwark’s new competing social media platform, Twatter, we won’t say don’t do it. Just be prepared for a lot of spambots (and by which, we mean actual spam. Have you EVER seen Qwark eat?!)
We can use a few moderators the day of the stream, as well as some call in guests. If either respectfully wielding a banhammer or calling into a show viewed by thousands all over the world sounds like your dig, email email@example.com and we’ll get you set up.
We’ll have a link shortly where you can submit trivia questions for our performers during the show. Anything from Insomniac goes, so yeah, that burning question about Disruptor or Fruit Fusion is totally good! All Unicop questions will be sent to the incinerator and mocked repeatedly.
You can host our stream for us! If you’re not streaming that night yourself, throw some people our way. It’s over here.
Of course, attending the stream itself is the whole point! Even if you don’t throw a few bucks/cents/bolts/euros/bags of salt towards Child’s Play (and we hope you do, link will be as big, green, and shiny as Dallas Wannamaker’s bald head during the event) we’d like you to come watch and have a good time.
This one’s a given, but there’s an extra incentive- donors will be put in a pool to win some pretty neat prizes. We’ve got the rare comics, some fan created Ratchet inspired art, official merch, and, yes, we’re giving it away. Every time we visit a planet for the first time, we’ll give something out. Seeing the sights of Novalis for the first time? Someone might just be winning a complete box of the original PS2 title. Landing on Metropolis for the first time to take in the sights? You might just win a custom art commission from some of the talented Ratchet and Clank DeviantArtists! So if not for the kids, do it because you’re really selfish and want cool stuff- you know, be like Qwark.
April 15, 8PM EDT~ midnight (or later!)
