Cryptic Studios ran their annual fundraiser in support of the ExtraLife charity over the weekend. Last year they hosted a full 24-hour stream and this year switched to a schedule that spanned over Saturday and Sunday. Players could participate in various giveaways, watch different tabletop live plays, and of course see CMs playing Cryptic titles. Neverwinter’s Julia for example appeared on the stream on Sunday morning and adventured for about 45 minutes.

The studio set the initial goal to $3,000, but easily surpassed that. As the Star Trek Online CM noted on Twitter after the event, they even reached two more goals. The final donation amount on screen was $5,468. That’s an incredible amount for a good cause and we’d like to thank the devs for donating their time, and the game’s incredible community for donating money! We sure hope that this will be something Cryptic continues to do in the coming years.
Two last thoughts for the evening:
1) Our Extra Life team DESTROYED three goals, ya’ll are amazing, thank you.
2) Tomorrow, a thing that I have been working very hard on, as have a lot of other people, for MONTHS, and was entirely my idea, goes live and I am very excitenervous.
