The Legion Games, the video games fundraising initiative from The Royal British Legion, has launched #PauseYourGame – an act of Remembrance by the games and live streaming community.
Kicking off today and running until Wednesday 11 November, #PauseYourGame is a week of streams, giveaways, tournaments, and events, hosted by popular streamer Lomadiah and supported by PCGamesN and The Loadout as the official media partners. As well as Ukie, the UK Interactive Entertainment Association, #PauseYourGame is also backed by Corsair, Wargaming and other members of the UK video games industry.
When #PauseYourGame concludes on Wednesday 11 November, The Legion Games will run their own digital commemoration, by asking streamers and the wider games community to pause their game, stream, or social activity, for two minutes at 11:00 GMT to join the national moment of Remembrance.
Those still interested in getting involved and fundraising in aid of The Legion Games can download the free community pack complete with overlays, logos and holding screens at www.legiongames.gg.
Throughout the week, Lomadiah will be joined by a variety of different influencers, such as Two Angry Gamers, Ashens and RadderssGaming as well as streams by The Legion Games community. Official media partners PCGamesN and The Loadout will also be joining the week of streams, so be sure to look out for them too.
During the week of streams and fundraising, host Lomadiah will be running The Legion Games’ inaugural Speedrunning event on popular puzzle-platformer Portal 2, as well as presenting a Games Pub Quiz with streamers Ashens and RadderssGaming set to join as contestants.
Two Angry Gamers will be streaming an IRL Ghost Lap on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The streaming duo will also be shoutcasting over community Fall Guys streams in the style of hit Japanese game show, Takeshi’s Castle. For the full #PauseYourGame schedule, please visit www.legiongames.gg.
Pioneered by The Royal British Legion, The Legion Games is on a mission to aid and support the serving and ex-serving community through building a community of streamers, gamers, and influencers. The Legion Games connects people through their love of gaming. Whether players are from the Armed Forces community or not, The Legion Games promotes inclusivity.
