CNE Extra Life 2021 

Welcome Back, Extra Life!

It's hard to believe that it's that time of the year again with how this year has flown by, but it's already time for Codename Entertainment Extra Life 2021! We're excited to bring back our day of streaming after a year of hiatus! We are also absolutely thrilled to say that this is our eighth year fundraising for Extra Life!

For those who may not know, Extra Life is a wonderful program set up to raise donations for Children's Miracle Network hospitals. The money raised is donated as unrestricted funds for hospitals to use as needed. But the best part? We can help by doing what we love to do: gaming!

For more information about the Extra Life program, check out their FAQ.

What's the Plan for 2021?

Last year we had to cancel our in-person ExtraLife festivities at the very last minute due to changing COVID restrictions. However, we were thrilled that we still managed to raise over $20,000 CAD for BC Children's Hospital in 2020.

We're hoping to do better in 2021!

This year we are delighted to bring back our 24-hour ExtraLife Stream. Starting at 9 AM Pacific Time (PT) on Friday, November 19th until 9 AM PT on Saturday, November 20th, we are excited to offer a jam-packed schedule of game programming. We've got shows based on Dungeons & Dragons, Dark Souls Speedruns, Beat Saber, Dalgona Challenge, Phasmaphobia, and much more. We will have both virtual and CNE HQ-based streams, and you can check out our full streaming schedule on the Codename Entertainment Extra Life Page. You can also donate in-game by purchasing our Extra Life 2021 DLC packs, or directly through the Extra Life pages for any of our currently-supported games. Check out the individual game pages for more details!

    Codename's Extra Life Streams are Cancelled

    We are cancelling the Codename Entertainment 24-hour Extra Life 2020 live stream due to new pandemic restrictions in British Columbia through early January.

    While we are sad to make this announcement, we are happy to do our part to help in the fight against COVID-19.

    But Here's the Good News!

    Additionally, we have some good news to report: Thanks to your collective generosity across all our games, we have raised over $18,000 CAD for BC Children's Hospital Foundation!

    Extra Life is one of the highlights for us every year, and despite everything that has happened in 2020 this year is no different. We are always happy to support a great cause.

    From all of us at Codename Entertainment, THANK YOU for helping make the world a better place -- we'll see you in 2021!

    What's the Plan for 2020?

    Like many events this year, we've had to shift from the typical plan and adapt to find solutions that allow us to stay safe and within our region's COVID-19 restrictions. The Codename Entertainment team will still be playing all kinds of games, but we will have more virtual games this year in addition to the socially distant in-office antics. As of new regulations issued at 3 PM PST on Thursday, November 19th, 2020, the Codename Entertainment 24 hour Extra Life live stream has been postponed until a later date.

    You can donate in-game by purchasing our Extra Life 2020 DLC packs, or directly through the Extra Life pages for any of our currently-supported games. Check out the individual game pages for more details! As of Thursday, November 19th 2020 we are thrilled to say that we've already raised over $11,000! Also, you can check out the Codename Entertainment Extra Life page here.

    What if I already donated to a specific stream?

    As of Thursday evening, we received donations to various streams campaigns and we are delighted to say that we will be matching those donations received up to this point.

    Once again, you can find all our info and more over on the Codename Entertainment Extra Life Team Page.

    We hope to have our new day of streaming scheduled soon!
