I can't stay up past 10:30 PM anymore because I'm old, but I know a few people who can. Destructoid is teaming with Bitmob to play Deep Silver's cooperative zombie-massacre title Dead Island for -- wait for it -- 20 hours straight. Or until the game's credit roll. Things could get interesting...
Yup, it's a classic all-nighter, and it'll be live streamed starting today at 7:00PM PST. Destructoid's Max Scoville and Tara Long will be teaming up with Bitmob's Sebastian Haley and Chloe Dykstra for this 20-hour-long descent into madness. Extra goodies to look out for:
Free copies of Dead Island will be given to randomly selected viewers throughout the event.
Expect surprise guests, including back-up players like cosplayer Linda Le and Crystal Dyanamics community manager Meagan Marie.
Udon lead artist Long Vo will be taking requests and drawing zombiefied versions of famous videogame characters.
And… other surprises!
Check back tonight around 6:45 PM PST for links to the live stream. Special thanks to Astro Gaming, Deep Silver, and Crystal Dynamics for putting up with this crazy idea and helping to make it a reality.
