Local Game Studio looking for partners and volunteers!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, is your game day over and you are feeling the withdrawals?

 

You may have seen the article from the main Extra Life feed on Grunka Munka Games (here). This small, local studio is full of Extra Lifers who are living the dream of working on video games all day, and spent Game Day with the Seattle Guild at Seattle Children's Hospital raising money #ForTheKids! They just released their first game and as part of their launch plan, want to bring it in a CUSTOM arcade cabinet to the Alyssa Burnett Center in Bothell. They could use some help, so if you have time, give a read to this message from their Marketing Officer Ray. If you are interested in helping out, you can contact them directly at contactus@grunkamunka.com.

 

"We are a video game studio in Seattle and are working with Seattle Children's Hospital to build two custom arcade cabinets (similar to the one in the attached photo) for their Alyssa Burnett Adult Life Center (ABC). It's a center that "offers year-round classes and activities for adults, age 18 or older, with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities". 
 
We plan to build both arcade cabinets, install internal game consoles (Nintendo Switch & Xbox One, possibly PC as well), pre-load them with games, deliver them to ABC, and paint the arcade cabinets with the students of ABC. After that, ABC will keep one of the arcade cabinets for their students to enjoy and be able to auction off the other to raise funds for ABC / Seattle Children’s Hospital.
 
We hope to make the delivery/painting event(s) as positive and impactful as possible. We also hope to incorporate Xbox Adaptive Controllers into the system so people with physical limitations can use the system with ease.
 
We hope to partner with literally anyone who wants to be involved to make this effort possible and are more than happy for them to have a presence throughout the process. Our biggest need is any hardware/software that anyone would be able to provide. If that's possible, that would great. If not, that’s ok too. 
 
For anyone who is able to be involved and/or join us during our event(s), we would be delighted to have their help. We simply want to bring some gaming happiness to some great people and are more than happy to share the spotlight in doing so.
 

Thanks,
 
Ray Aflakian
Chief Marketing Officer"
