Extra Life 2016 with the WLU Game Changers

Donate to our Extra Life campaign at


Extra Life is an organation that runs a 24-hour gaming marathon each year as a fundraiser for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. 


This year, the WLU Game Changers, a group of students interested in making games who live in Grand River Hall, are taking on the Extra Life challenge.

However, instead of playing games for 24 hours, they will be making games for 24 hours!  In fact, they have been challenged by the Residence Life program to make games that can be used to help students living in residence with some of their common problems.


This game jam will take place from 8AM Nov. 5th to 8AM Nov. 6th, and it will be streamed on Twitch.TV at the BGNlab Twitch account at
