Join us for our GameBlast18 N64 marathon livestream to raise money for SpecialEffect!

by Martin Watts, 2 February 2018

N64 Today GameBlast18 charity stream

On 24 February 2018, we’ll be livestreaming a 16-hour N64 marathon on Twitch to raise money for SpecialEffect as part of GameBlast18, the UK’s biggest gaming marathon weekend.

SpecialEffect is UK-based charity that uses technology, such as modified joypads and eye control, to enable people with physical disabilities to play video games.

We want to raise £640 towards this amazing cause, so that as many people as possible can enjoy the magical medium of video games.

From 10:00 to 02:00 GMT on 24 February, Martin, Ash, Chris and Scott – N64 Today’s “Ultra 64 Stream Team” – will be playing a variety of N64 games on the N64 Today Twitch channel. There’ll be a mixture of solo quests, co-op challenges, obscure Japanese titles and, of course, plenty of the four-player mayhem for which the N64 is renowned.
