Rogue Islands, the challenging new first-person shooter which uses adaptive AI and procedural generation to create a game based on a player’s skill level, has partnered with Streamers Connected for a five-day live stream starting on the 8th September, in the run up to launch on 12th September. With the majority of profits from Rogue Islands going to help life-limited and disabled children, Streamers Connected will be encouraging viewers to purchase the game as a way to make donations.
Streamers Connected is an open community for broadcasters, moderators, developers and viewers of live streams across the internet. The group, which has over 524 streamers, work to support each other – but also come together to support games that they believe in.
Rogue Islands is the first new game to be published by Keystone Games, a privately funded game studio and publisher formed with EA’s former Executive in Charge of Production, Jane Whittaker and a global team of AAA game designers and developers.
There are 41 Twitch streamers taking part in the five-day Streamers Connected: Rogue Islands event, including:

“Josh read about Rogue Islands and the mission of Keystone on LinkedIn” commented Jane Whittaker, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Technical Officer at Keystone Games “He contacted me to help support the game, as he believed in the importance of game studios making games that go on to help charities that care for children and those in need. We are thrilled to work with a community that supports one another and wants to use its collective power to help those in need.”
Rogue Islands is available now for £14.99 / $19.99 USD on Steam, with a worldwide release on all major download platforms and boxed distribution around the world by Keystone Publishing on 12th September. The majority of profits from games made and published by Keystone Games will go to helping life-limited and disabled children.
