GameBlast

GameBlast is a charity initiative by SpecialEffect, a UK-based charity that helps people with disabilities play games. It is ran every year, where gamers and gaming companies are encouraged to take part in a gaming-related challenge to raise money for the charity over the period of 48 hours.

Jagex have supported the GameBlast initiative for many years, including by running 24 hour livestreams, releasing cosmetic items into the game, and opening up the Well of Goodwill for people to donate in-game coins, items, and bonds. Double XP Weekends are common around GameBlast.

2018Edit

Jagex will hold another 24 hour livestream on 23 February 2018 in support of GameBlast 18.[1]

2016Edit

This took place on 26 February - 28 February 2016. The Well again was reopened, and the limited edition GameBlast 2016 pack was made available on Solomon's General Store. To follow previous years' tradition, Jagex also streamed 24 hours of various activities at their offices on Twitch.

Livestream timetableEdit

The livestream was from 12:00PM UTC 26 February until 12:00PM UTC 27 February 2016. Throughout the stream, a team of JMods and a team of players partook in 8 challenges against each other.
