So after what happened in Newtown about a month and a half ago, we knew we had to do something. Teaming with Kinetic City, we’ve been planning an enormous event that is going to take place in Nashua, NH. Birthplace of the video game. Not just as fellow countrymen, but also as fellow New Englanders, we weren’t going to sit by while something could be done. So we decided to throw this event. A night of gaming, dancing, and overall awesomeness. Our game developer buddies from ALL over the country are donating prizes and anything they can to help out. All of the proceeds will be donated to the Newtown, CT school district towards mental health and guidance. Do your part and come hang with us. It’s going to be an absolute blast!

{the media of course wants to blame any violent tragedy at least partially on video games. well, we want to show what good video games can do! so we’re holding a video game tournament and video game themed party to help in the wake of the tragedy that took place last month in Newtown, CT! and what better place to do it then the very birthplace of the video game. THAT’S RIGHT! the game that would later become “Pong” was invented in Nashua, NH!}
