Warm fuzzy feeling at Insomnia

What a privilege to be invited by Multiplay to exhibit at the i48 Insomnia gaming festival last weekend!

Insomnia, one of the UK's largest gaming events, is a heady, concentrated mix of nearly 2000 dedicated and pro gamers meeting and competing, with a large spoonful of social mayhem stirred in. It was great to be among people who really get what we're trying to do, and who appreciate the technology we're using to do it.

And huge thanks to Multiplay themselves who raised over £400 for us at the event quiz, and to the magnificent Marcel and Chris who ran a (very) late night poker tournament in aid of the charity. And to the many suppliers who spontaneously donated gear for future raffles, including eTeknix, MadCatz and ESET.

For us it was a great chance to tell more people about the incredible people we're helping, and despite the sub-zero temperatures and driving snow that never once let up during the four days, we left the event feeling the warmth of a community that sees games as a force for good.
