We're on a very important mission to save kids and they need your help. The Children's Miracle Network is an amazing foundation that helps kids and doesn't ask for money in return for their help. We're asking for your donations in exchange for some fun gaming entertainment over the coming months, culminating in a weekend full of contests, giveaways, dares, and more all done live on our Twitch stream page. Extra Life has raised more than $22 million to help children's hospitals provide critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment, research and charitable care. It's our sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support our efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to Children's Miracle Network.
Last year we raised $750! This year we're setting our sights even higher with a $2,000 level goal! The team we've registered to be a part of, Furs For Life, has raised more than $4,000 already this year, and has raised over $10,000 total as a team over the years.
Gaming Furever is hosting a special "Kick-Off" stream on Saturday, July 30th, where staff members JoJo, Taki, Janie and special guests will be participating in playing fun games, taking crazy dares, and helping raise more money for this very special organization. We'll be hosting bi-weekly streams during the Fall, all leading up to the official Extra Life Day Stream in November. (Note that all money goals are for the whole campaign leading into November, but dares/events will be added if necessary and as goals grow higher.
Welcome to the brand-spanking new Gaming Furever!
We've changed a lot around here, including what we're going to try to be to the fandom moving forward. For years, we've had a database of furry game information. While this was cool to have as a reference for those who may not know all there is to know about furry games and their history, it was a large undertaking for the small staff we have. Thankfully, the furry gaming scene continues to grow at an increasing rate, and we're moving our focus to covering updates to those games which include anthropomorphic characters, or especially animal-driven titles.
We are also reinvigorating our community scene! We want to have social hangouts, gaming meetups online, tournaments, and more! That's where fun happens and friendships are built, and we want to help facilitate that. We're bringing in staff with a passion for gaming and a knack for being friendly and peppy, and with experience running gaming events & tournaments online and in the real world. This should help keep things from getting stagnant around here less often.
Of course, you may also notice that the previous site data, including articles, reviews, forums, and users was wiped. We did this for a number of reasons, and have held out from doing it in the past. Here they are:
Out with the old, in with the new! Speaking of new, we're very excited to welcome a brand new staff team here at GF. Instead of having a huge stable of staff, we decided to go with a smaller, more dedicated team who can bring their own individual experiences to the site in awesome ways. We hope you'll get to know them as they spend their time on the site, heading up social gaming events, and more!
So there you have it! Follow us here on the site for news, a growing community of gamers, and more! Invite your clan/guild to set up a group over on the community, find local furs to have RPG meet-ups or hangouts, make friends and chat em up, upload your favorite screenshots or personal art to the community, set up your profile with your gamertag or PSN name and more! There's lots to do! Make GF your own!
