The Sick Kids Save Point charity gaming marathon is away!
Our brave gamers are updating us with what they’re playing via our facebook page or on twitter using the #sksp hashtag.
Follow them and show your support with words of encouragement and donations to their fundraising, all of which will help sick children and their families.
Some participants are live streaming their events. For example Alex Sievewright here:

A word of warning: we cannot be held responsible for mature content or naughty words that might come out of tired gamers’ mouths. It’s all in a good cause!
Sick Kids Save Point grows an IRL launch – all welcome!
We had so much fun being at Dare Protoplay this year we thought we’d hold an event of our own.
And thanks to the kind folks at The Hit Point we’re actually doing it this year, not just talking about it!
We’re going to be launching Sick Kids Save Point 6 with a launchpad event on the 24th September 2015 at the Counting House, Nicolson St, Edinburgh at 6pm, and we’d love to see you there, whether you’re taking part in the marathon, a season sksp veteran or just want to find out more.
We’ll have plenty to keep gamers occupied, including playable games from local Edinburgh developers, a thrilling scorechase and some classic multiplayer games. And there’s a bar.
Free entry, but we may trouble you for a donation to the Sick Kids Friends Foundation
It’s going to be the best night out in Scottish gaming. Why? Because it’s for a great cause!
The eagle eyed fighting game enthusiasts will have noticed this event takes in the regular Rushdown Edinburgh fighting games club, which meets every month at the venue. We thank them for letting us gatecrash their party!
