It's finally time! We're livestreaming the Bitmob/Destructoid Dead Island All-Nighter starting today, Friday, September 9, at 7 p.m. PST. So, what can you expect over the next 15-25 hours?
Bitmob's Sebastian Haley and Chloe Dykstra, as well as Destructoid's Tara Long and Max Scoville, play Deep Silver's new Borderlands-meets-Left 4 Dead zombie co-op game, Dead Island, from start to finish.
Free copies of Dead Island handed out to viewers throughout the night/day/night. Better bone up on your zombie trivia!
10+ backup players, including Crystal Dynamics Community Manager Meagan Marie and probably at least one pizza delivery guy.
Long Vo, a lead artist from Udon Entertainment, will take requests and draw famous video-game characters in their zombified form.
Other stuff, I guess. Maybe.
Publisher Deep Silver says Dead Island is a 30+ hour game, but I think we can kill it in 10. With our powers combined!
Special thanks to Astro Gaming, Deep Silver, and Tomb Raider-makers Crystal Dynamics for helping set this all up!
