Our Extra Life Stream Is Over, But You Can Continue Donating With This Rapture Twins Song
In the span of 25 hours this last weekend, Game Informer raised over $61,000 for Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare in St. Paul, Minnesota. The community that tuned into the livestream was incredibly generous (we can't thank you enough!), as were the game publishers, developers, artists, and musicians that provided awesome auction items.
We had a bit of fun with this year's livestream, and turned it into a musical, so everyone could hear just how terrible our singing voices are. For every $10,000 earned, a new song featuring a Game Informer editor performing a song was unlocked. One of those songs was a new song created by my new band, The Rapture Twins. I make up one half of the band, and Justin Courtney Pierre of Motion City Soundtrack is the other.
Since we knew Game Informer's fervent Replay community would be tuning in for most (if not all) of the livestream, we decided to base our song off of the game they treasure most. That's right, the song is about Overblood, the terrible PlayStation survival-horror game turned cult classic, thanks to the Super Replay. The song is called "Eternity," mostly because it feels like time isn't passing when you play it.
Here's the real cool thing: All proceeds for "Eternity" go to Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare. Our livestream may be over, but you can continue donating by purchasing the song. Please help us continue raising money, and we'll see you again roughly a year from now for another marathon live stream for Extra Life. Here are the places you can download "Eternity" for $1.
