What happens during Jingle Jam?
Special live events and games are broadcast on the front page of Twitch.tv for the duration of the event - offering a global focal point for the collection, the companies participating and the charities being supported. Game publishers and developers can get involved by including their games in the collection, which is given to anyone who donates £35 or more. Last year's collection included global smash hits like Northgard, Surviving Mars and Barotrauma; as well as celebrated indie titles like Wildermyth and Hyper Light Drifter.
Last year also saw 215 community fundraisers as other creators, charities and games companies ran their own Jingle Jam streams, raising over £480,000. This year anyone will be able to register from 1 December on Tiltify and take part.
