Charity 8-bit gaming marathon - schedule

by Paul Morrison


Hi all,

I hope you're all aware of my upcoming charity 8-bit gaming marathon.  If you're not, then I'll tell you that I'm going to be playing Commodore 64 and Spectrum games for 12 hours on March 26th, with all donations going to the Young Epilepsy charity.  I'll be streaming it live... see my previous post for more details.

I've been considering how best to approach it and my current thinking is to split each hour into themes.  That way, I'll retain my focus and not be wondering what the hell to play next, and prospective viewers can tune in to segments that look most interesting to them (with the best will in the world, I don't really expect anyone to see out the whole 12 hours with me!).

Soooo... that being the case, I've drawn up a programme for the day.  This is subject to change, but as of this moment, here's the running order.  Of course, you have no idea what games I'm going to play within each segment, which should keep it interesting!

12-1pm Random

1-2pm US Gold

2-3pm Elite Systems

3-4pm Random

4-5pm Gremlin Graphics

5-6pm Spectrum

6-7pm Hewson Consultants

7-8pm Budget Games

8-9pm Commodore 64

9-10pm Graftgold

10-11pm Ocean/Imagine

11pm-12am Random

I hope that looks intriguing enough to you, it's got me excited, anyway!  If you have any suggestions, please give me a shout.  I'll be giving more updates as time goes by so keep checking back.

Also, if you want to have a look at my JustGiving page, here it is.  It goes without saying that all donations are and will be appreciated hugely.
